In the early hours of this morning, I hit on the idea that I'd like to have a go at making some videos, so armed with camera and spare batteries, I drove off optimistic that the weather weather would change. Having moved to Devon in October 2007, I've learnt that the weather is very changeable!
Lunchtime arrived and as I looked out of the office window, there was blue sky and sunshine - perfect conditions to head out and see what I could find to video.
My first stop was at Trow Farm where the 'oldies' are. They were certainly enjoying the heat of the sun on their backs while munching on their hay.
I then headed in the main direction of the Sanctuary and came across the donkeys which are used for donkey assisted therapyfor children with additional needs. One was stood to the left of me enjoying the sunshine while some of the others were taking it in turns to roll in the wood chips. It always amuses me that once one starts to roll, the others have to have a go too!
Adjacent to these donkeys, Ruby and Simba were receiving lots of attention from a family that were visiting for the day. The grandmother was telling her grand-daughter that her own mother used to be called Ruby.
As I started to walk back to my office, I passed Apollo and Myles in one of the hospital paddocks receiving quite a bit of attention from a couple who had brought their young daughter up to see the donkeys.
With the working day over, I drove home and started to tinker with a a video and audio editor to see what I could do with a couple of the videos I had taken earlier in the day.
