Wow! After a hectic couple of weeks our first ever fundraising event was a great success! The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with people already asking when the next one will be held. Sorry to all the people who missed out on tickets, we promise to book a bigger venue next time!
Our MC/trivia extraordinaire, Robyn Tymms did an amazing job leading us through the night and keeping us all entertained with her great selection of trivia questions, with lots of fun and laughter from the boisterous crowd. We raised an amazing $2797 which has gone towards feed bills. Thank you all so much!
We would also like to give a big “Thankyou” to all the amazing businesses and individuals who supported this event with their generous donations of auction and prize items. Without their support, not-for-profit organisations like White Angels Horse Rescue, would struggle to continue operating. Lets all support our local businesses to show how much we appreciate their generosity.

A few days ago we lost our beautiful Henry.
He was the old man of the herd, who played with the babies and looked after everyone. Henry was the shiatsu teacher and adored by all!
In his day, Henry was the lead hunt horse at Yarra Glen Hunt Club, and then a magnificent Grade 1 PC horse following that.
He had a long life, and retired in peace with all his horse mates right there with him.
RIP big man. It was a pleasure to have looked after you through your retirement, and you will be missed dearly.
When Honey first arrived at W.A.H.R in June, we had a good reason to think she was pregnant! Her belly would have been one of the biggest we have seen. However, after an ultrasound, we were told that Honey was in fact not pregnant, she just had an unusually big stomach. (After all, she had been used as a baby factory for the racing industry for many, many years, and there’s no saying how many foals she has had).
You can imagine our surprise when, a week ago, our vet came out and did a check on Honey, and told us that we should be expecting a huge foal in the next couple of days…
But what a beautiful surprise it was.
W.A.H.R has since been blessed with the friendliest, cutest little filly, that now goes by the name of Peaches Breeze.
