A beautiful flower called Primrose

There's always someone interesting to see when you take a walk around the Sanctuary and today was no exception. I'd never really noticed mules, but a certain mule called Primrose held me in her trance.

I thought mules only came in one colour - dark brown, but Primrose is a lovely honey brown colour (technically referred to as dun). With her were Eeyore and Dinky grazing in one of the Isolation Unit paddocks that are round on Walk C, one of the many walks around the Sanctuary.

A walk in the making

It's such a glorious sunny day here at the Sanctuary today, so at lunchtime I took myself for a walk with camera in hand as always to go and see the donkeys. I was aiming to find Apollo, who is a Grande Noir du Berry donkey, native to France and a breed of donkey that used to pull barges on the Grand Noir canal.

I found him in one of the hospital paddocks and he obliged by coming over for a cuddle.

Ani-mission

Following yesterday's filming here at the Sanctuary by ITV West Country stemming from Animated Exeter, it was a delight to go and see on the big screen our Poor Donkey film, directed by Tak Amit.

Donkey weeker

Hi, my name's Jenifer and I've been making the annual trek to Donkey Week for 12 years now. The highlight was my 10th year where I received the coveted red sweatshirt!

On a beautiful sunny day, we all visited the Sanctuary's farm in Dorset. The bus drive gave us the opportunity to take in the lovely scenery. How green it was.
