Beba
09-11-2021

The heartbreaking pleas of a young girl on behalf of her horse-sister made us put logic aside and all considerations of finances, hay, work, stable space etc and take in yet another beautiful big resident in Vrouva. Upon arrival, Beba was so pleased to see her friends, all the other retired carriage horses, and Angelo in particular.

Go to our meet the residents page to meet Beba.

Hay for the horses of Ipperos Farm in the burnt forest of N. Evia
11-10-2021

Ipperos Farm needs our help! The grazing lands of the horses were destroyed in the fires of the summer, and with that and covid there has been no support from kind visitors. The owner, Sapfo, could use any donation to help feed the horses and keep them healthy through the coming winter.

Ipperos Farm was the source of Vrouvas first equine, Eric, and has been a great mentor in horse care through out the years. Its time to give back for all of the invaluable advice and support they have shown to Vrouva!

Thank you for your continued support of the animals of Greece

Hay for the year
30-4-2021

Our animals enjoy eating hay and it helps them to keep healthy.This winter we had so little rain that it is now more necessary than ever to buy hay so our animals can keep enjoying the hay. We can get a good price for the hay if we order in bulk. This is the reason why we are asking your help. It would be great if we can raise this money to place a order for 500 bales for the whole year. One bale is €5,-. If you want to help click the picture to go to the donation page. Or contact us for our bank info

Margarita
22-01-2021

Our beloved Margarita is not with us any more in the physical realm.She died of colic (and old age) the day after Christmas with the help of our equine vets.
Margarita must have lived over 40 years( the last 11 with us) and was very old. Still, her death was painful and unexpected to all the residents and volunteers of Vrouva Farm.
We buried her next to her soulmate Kitsos and her friend Eric. We like to imagine them reunited, happily grazing on the green fields of heaven.
The sweet memories,the kindness and the love of our beautiful donkey girl will stay with us forever.
Thank you Margarita
