Working Towards a Better Tomorrow

Our Story

Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. Hungry Herds emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community in helping the ponies on the common, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Established in 2017, we’re an organisation driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.

On the Welsh Common of Gelligaer there are many herds of wild ponies. During the winter months the weather is very harsh and grazing is limited for the ponies. These conditions led to Hungry Herds being launched by a group of caring volunteers.
The volunteers give their time freely to meet up and feed the herds during these winter months, over the summer period the volunteers spend time organising and carrying out fundraising activities to purchase the feed needed.
If you have some spare time why not pop along and help out, the volunteers are a cheery, friendly bunch always ready to welcome new volunteers.
