Grass Mats For Paddocks, Enclosures & Animal Recovery Area

Grass Mats Banner

As you can see from the above image, a Pony is eating from our Grass Mats. We donated a number of mats to Amate Animalia who are a registered, volunteer run charity (1164303) based in the Cotswolds. Their main focus is rescuing and rehabilitating exotic animals (and also take in some domestic species too, although they specialise in exotics).

They currently have over 119 species including mammals, lizards, amphibians, invertebrates, snakes and birds. As well as caring for animals, they do ‘Pets as Therapy’ visits for disabled children and adults as well as educational talks for schools & universities. Part of their Pets as Therapy team are Shetland ponies who visit people in care homes and hospices.

The Project

 This project started when a member of the Amate Animalia team contacted our customer service team and began enquiring about our grass mats. After a long conversation including what & why the mats would be used, we donated the amount required and dispatched them along with cable ties and fixing pegs the same day.
We were told how the grass mats would be used in the pony paddock for Charlie and Jim as they needed a non-slippery and padded surface to walk on. The mats were also to be used for their many exotic mammals to rest and move on after surgery to protect their wounds and promote successful recovery. Some of the mats were also to be used as walkways and access routes so volunteers did not trip or slip whilst working.

The Work

The charity received their grass mats three working days after they had been dispatched from our warehouse. As soon as they arrived, the team set about installing them in the correct places. Three grass mats were installed in the pony paddock by the entrance, feeding station and stable which you can see in the photos attached. The team told us how simple the mats were to install and secure in to the ground using the fixing pegs and cable ties.

Next, the walkways were installed which you can see on the second to last photo to ensure that no staff would slip or trip when in the pony paddock. Again the mats were simple to secure in to the ground and there has been no movement at all since they were installed.

Finally, although there are no images, they installed the last grass mats in a recovery area to allow post-surgery animals to move freely and rest without the risk of further injury to their wounds. Again these were installed using cable ties and have not moved since being installed. The entire project was a complete success we have been told!
