The first two days of our Donkey Holiday have flown past! The donkeys, of course, are the centre of everyone’s attention. It is beautiful to watch the participants interact with the animals.
Yesterday, we went to Faye and Jim Staple’s amazing farm outside Tillsonburg. The Staples have rescued many animals: sheep, goats, ducks, chickens and also they are a DSC Foster Farm for three of our donkeys. Faye and Jim have created a postive, supportive environment for all of the creatures and our Holidayers were enchanted.
This morning will be busy with farrier and dental demonstrations. Then, in the afternoon, there will be a guided tour of the Ontario Veterinary College’s Large Animal Clinic. Before and after, though, will be lots of time to just sit and enjoy the Sanctuary. We are having a wonderful time!
