Donkey Sanctuary of Canada on Facebook, and I haven't been able to stop liking them since I started following them. The pictures they post of these rescued animals is heart-stopping for me...or work-stopping, because I stop working to look. They seem so gentle, and in the pictures, each ones character shines through. For a year, I dreamed of making the trek to the Sanctuary to see for myself. Now, this isn't a light plan to make, it's a fair distance, there's the apprentice and his schooling, the studio mutt, and not least of all, squeezing it in between actual work.! No problemo, there was lots of time, I had a year to plan, right?
Donkey Sanctuary of Canada, where they open their doors to visitors, raising funds to run the facility. We were stunned at the amount of people we saw (2420 visitors!) - the beautiful day co-operating with a perfect sky! People from all over, flocking to the same destination with presumably the same addictive interest as me. We were welcomed by a wonderful crew, who fawned over Sonney like he was an honorary Donkey. Sonney adored the attention.
It was a fun day, and for a moment, we visitors were one kindred collection of spirits, celebrating the challenging, but rewarding rescue efforts of the Donkey Sanctuary.
Watch for Donkey Day #20 on Sunday June 9th, 2013.
