A popular podcast created by Redwings Horse Sanctuary has returned for a second series.

The Sounds of the Sanctuary podcast has already been downloaded around 4,000 times and offers a behind-the-scenes look at life at Redwings, which has a base in Aylsham.

A sister podcast, called Field Notes, has also made a return to delve further into equine care issues and offer advice from staff and veterinary teams.
The first episode of series two of Sounds of the Sanctuary launched in 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.  

Jude Palmer, PR and Digital Officer at Redwings, said, “We’re delighted to have brought both podcasts back for a second series.

“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.” 

Jude added: “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.” 

ON AIR: Jude with Chloe and Periwinkle recording another podcast.

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.
