The day started slow with people coming out but got busier after lunch and we had a full day with people and donkeys, at one point we had to close the barn, as one of the donkeys was down and obviously in severe distress, and everybody thought she was going to be goner any minute, with elevated heart rate and temperature, but after a while our oldest donkey Summer perked right back up and was back on her feet. Thank God, hope she is going to do better today. Then we found my sweet Buffy out in the field with a big gash on her neck, so she was brought in and treated and stayed the night over on the barnyard side in good care. Buffy is such a sweetie and one of my favourites, I was glad I got to spend some time with her as she was hanging out in the Office Paddock, where the Learning Centre is situated. Another constant companion today was Danny Boy, the mule, however only in arm reach and only to look at as he is very shy and doesn't like to get petted, however he is the first one to come and see what's new with you when you arrive.
So it was a busy day and we were really short on people, only two volunteers as I was in the Learning Centre, and we were short one barn staff, so it was a little bit crazy today and we stayed longer after closing to get all the chores done. I was glad that I didn't have to work last night as I was just exhausted from the day and the heat we had.
