We continue our work on creating the first Horse Sanctuary in Bulgaria and already know its location. Our biggest hope is that we will see our hoses graze freely by the end of this summer. Horses Penny, Silencio, Borko, Mitko, Shakespeare and Sherlock as well as Velichka the donkey – cannot wait.

Loads of things need to happen for this plan to succeed. But the first is to purchase the right plots of Farm land, neighboring municipal land that can be rented cheaply.

We thank the “Shtipka” association and artist Michaela Pelicheva who are joining our efforts! Michaela painted and “Shtipka” printed charity t-shirts with three original designs:


30% of every t-shirt purchased are a donation for our horse Sanctuary.

The t-shirts cost 20 BGN (every size and design) and can be ordered at:

– Online at or by phone: 0887 643 462

– From “Achilles” Horse Base, Bistritsa village, phone:  0878 922 790

Right now our horses live in different places. Babies Sherlock and Shakespear are at the shelter; Penny and Silencio are fostered; everyone else is residing in different stables. And since they all have health issues, the providing of proper care to them takes a lot of time and nerves.


We thank the 113 people who donate 2BGN by SMS for them every month:
