Ashley's now 4 weeks old

Having been a volunteer to help bottle-feed Ashley from when he was born, it's lovely to be a part of a dedicated team helping to give this little donkey a good start in life. I've got used to seeing Ashley's cute face waiting at the stable door when I arrive to make up his feed in the early mornings when most people are tucked up in bed and fast asleep.

A double shift this evening

It's 1 o'clock in the morning and little Ashley's has had his midnight feed... and of course his cuddles too! When I arrived, I peered through the stable door thinking he might be asleep, but no. His little face was peering right back at me... as usual!

Two bottles for Ashley

At 3 am the alarm went off and I fought the urge to turn over and go back to sleep, but in my thoughts was little Ashley waiting for his special foal milk. I quickly got dressed and stumbled passed our cat and dog who were totally disorientated by me being up at that time of morning!

I imagined seeing the sun rise at dawn as I drove into work, but instead it was a very dark, cold and windy morning. I didn't see a single sole all the way except a lone badger walking along a country lane minding his own business.
