Redwings Horse Sanctuary’s ‘Sounds of the Sanctuary’ podcast has returned for a second series, along with its sister podcast ‘Field Notes’.

Sounds of the Sanctuary – which has so far been downloaded nearly 4,000 times – offers a behind-the-scenes look at life at Redwings, the UK’s largest horse charity, while Field Notes delves further into the equine care issues raised and offers advice on issues from equine weight management to caring for the older horse from the charity’s experienced staff and veterinary teams.

The first episode of series two of Sounds of the Sanctuary launched on Friday (7 October) and follows foal Monarch, born at Redwings to rescue mare Majesty in April 2022. The pair, who were named in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, are now happily settled into life at Redwings.

The first episode of series two of Field Notes is also available to download and focusses on the importance of weight management off the back of an interview with SPILLERS about their weight-loss and fundraising initiative, Kilos to Pounds, which is being carried out in support of Redwings.

Jude Palmer, PR and Digital Officer at Redwings, said, “We’re delighted to have brought both podcasts back for a second series. So much has happened since series one – which was named by the Eastern Daily Press amongst their top 7 podcasts to listen to – and we have been recording ever since.

“We’ve got some new features in this series of Sounds of the Sanctuary including our ‘On the Hoof’ segment, which takes listeners along to training sessions with our nervous equines, to Appleby Horse Fair with our outreach team and to meet rehomed donkeys who now live with dinosaurs!

“Field Notes is the perfect accompaniment for horse owners or those who care for equines and covers a whole host of new subjects this series including caring for veteran horses and the importance of taking horses’ temperature to prevent the spread of the infectious disease strangles.”

The podcasts are available to listen to on all major podcast platforms, including Spotify and Apple Podcasts. New episodes of Sounds of the Sanctuary are uploaded on Fridays and Field Notes is uploaded on the following Monday. Listeners can listen to series one, and subscribe to the new series, on their favourite podcast platform to ensure they never miss an episode.

“We hope supporters new and old will enjoy discovering more about horse welfare and our work here at Redwings and the amazing stories of the horses and donkeys who call our Sanctuary home,” Jude added.
