Meet Bluebelle and Beatrice

Hi! We are Bluebelle and Beatrice…or Beatrice and Bluebelle; we don’t mind which one comes first.
We travelled all the way from Normandy to the HeeHaws sanctuary and are now at our forever home…and we are so glad to be here. Thanks to all who helped to make it happen.

We are living in the “Geriatric Paddock” with Duchesse and Princesse and are becoming ace buddies.

This is Beatrice now. I just wanted to tell you a few things about me…
I am in my mid 30s and am part Poitou, which means have some shaggy hair going on.
When I arrived I suffered from what is known as “sweet-itch”, which is a bad reaction to flies and  I had rubbed much of my fur off as I was super itchy.  Carina  applied some magic ointment to help with this, and it works a treat. Hurrah! So when I get itchy now, they treat it straight away…heaven!
It has to be said, I was also thin, out of condition and had to be wormed to help me on my journey to be well. I was also a bit wobbly on my feet, but much of that was down to the travelling – Normandy is a long way away – and because I needed some healthy grub to fill my belly.
My ears are so floppy and give me an air of being soulful. I mean, I am, but I am also a cutiepie with character.

Things I like:
Being cuddled – I just love it
Scratching my bottom on the trailer

Hey, it’s Bluebelle now. Im around 25 so the spring chicken of the “geriatric” paddock. I’m a very quiet so there’s not a huge amount to say about me. It’s not because I’m not sparkly – I most certainly am.
I love my food and I also love to share it. I was quite poorly when I arrived. Being fed yummy food was sooo good as I was thin and hungry, but it gave me colic (tummy ache). After lots of tests it was decided that I should have a cereal and sugar free diet, thats a shame as I could eat a whole packet of ginger biscuits…sigh!

Since then I have been really well. I’ve heard Carina say that I am “sweet-natured” which is just the kindest thing to say and I’ll happily take that compliment.

Things I like:
Having my ears scratched. I can’t tell you how fabulous it is. You should try it
My Sudocrem socks…which is a soothing ointment to help with the bitey fly bites
Following my new pals around because I love company and the feeling of friendship here at HeeHaws
