Barney’s plight moves Michaela to make a positive difference

WHEN Michaela Brown looked at the spring newsletter from Redwings Horse Sanctuary, and saw an article about a pony named Barney who was left upside down in some rubble, she was so upset that she wanted to do something to help.

Barney, as he has been named, was discovered in December, alone, in pain and too weak to stand.

This upset Michaela very much and felt she needed to help little Barney to get better, so she asked her nanny what could she do? “Why don’t you go on sponsored walk and raise some money for Barney,” her nanny replied.
It was decided that she would walk on the 31May from Amesbury, where her nanny lives, to Durrington, the next village.

She started from the Wetherspoons (the Bell Inn) and finished at what was her grandad’s old shop, about three miles away.

People have been very generous in sponsoring Michaela: so far she has raised about £390 and a cheque for that amount is on its way to Redwings.

Well done, Michaela.
