Business as usual

The current spell of dryer weather has allowed the paddocks to start to drain but it will be several weeks before we can start to turn the donkeys out. However, we are open as normal from 11 am to 4 pm and the donkeys would be very happy to welcome visitors during this half term. The Visitor Centre is open every day through the holiday so if you fancy a cuppa and a slice of cake that’s the place to go.

Water, water everywhere…

We have been contacted by many concerned supporters asking how the donkeys are coping during all the wet weather we have been getting. As you can see from these images, the paddocks are very waterlogged and will be out of action for a good while yet, especially with more rain forecast. Thankfully the donkeys all have shelter and a warm dry bed and are managing well with the situation although as you can imagine, the feed bill has rocketted!

Thank you to everyone who has contacted the sanctuary…we could have had it much worse.
