Chagford sales 2020!
An incredibly successful day! There was over 300 horses and ponies at this years sale. All of which sold! Most for a decent price, some for an astonishing price! The success and transformation of this sale is purely down to the commitment and dedication of the smaller charities on dartmoor, farmers, volunteers and social media.
In the years that Hugs; as a charity has been attending the sales there has annually been a noted improvement in the management of the sale, the quality and health of the animals, the types of buyers and the price. The smaller charities and their volunteers have helped transform this market, which was demonstrated today with its success. Massive well done to those involved. You must be so proud and completely exhausted after all the preparation and a full day at the sale! Chagford market has proved that ‘small charities’ are able to make a difference.

Then you are a follower of a small charity. To make a difference smaller charities like Hugs need YOUR donations, YOUR time and knowledge, YOUR dedication to help shape our future. With those key elements in place the smaller charities can continue to change the equine welfare and individual horses lives. If you were unable to attend the sale or were unsuccessful in bidding then please contact a local charity to rehome a dartmoor or hill pony type.
Hugs has a selection of yearlings that were unclaimed from last years drifts. They each have a Facebook album so please have a look at:
All have been well handled, castrated, vaccinated, microchipped, passported, wormed, have seen the farrier, vet and dentist if needed. Each for just a £250 donation. A lot cheaper than some of their siblings went for yesterday at the sale! Hugs will have some older mares available once they have finished their vaccination and handling process.
