I can't tell you how excited we all were on Friday. News around the long ears was that there was going to be a special treat for us... and what a treat it turned out to be. A huge big carrot cake topped off with polo mints. Showing my good manners, I of course let my other donkey friends have first bite.
Just before we trotted onto the Main Yard, we watched the unveiling of a new plaque. I wasn't tall enough to read it myself, but one of our grooms told us it was to celebrate 40 years of Dr Svendsen caring for donkeys.
I was on my best behaviour all day while visitors to the Sanctuary came along to the anniversary party where I hear there was an exhibition of photos showing my donkey cousins working overseas. I wonder if I'll be able to sneak in and take a look!
