Tea at Primrose Donkey Santuary

Today the Primrose Donkey Sanctuary held a tea for a fundraiser. What a great time we had! Rory ( my granddaughter ) came along and got to pet donkeys for the first time. When we first arrived we went over to the fence to meet Phillip. He's only a youngin', I think we were told he's about 8 months old. He just loved Rory.

A lovely black kitty came along and wanted her belly rubbed :)

Then we enjoyed our tea and sandwiches and dessert. Yummy!

Look there was even a chandelier, so elegant!

We asked to go on a tour so we could meet more of the donkeys at the sanctuary. On our way into the barn, we had to stop and pet Princess, isn't she beautiful with her lovely ribbon?

Rory asked if she could brush some of the donkeys. Cory was enjoying it!

Then little Goliath got a turn.

Rory even met Primrose :)

Bandit wanted to play with the straw, what fun!

And finally a tea leaf reading by Corinne!

A fabulous afternoon, if you didn't make it this year, be sure to come out next year!

Past, Present & Future

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you probabely already know that Oak got hip xrays done at the end of April of last year. They weren't great. The socket didn't go completely around the ball, or fit tightly enough. So after discussing things with my vet, I decided on a few things I wanted to do to help improve his hip joints.
First, I put him on Sasha's Blend, salmon oil and vitamin C. Second, he started going to the chiropractor and third, swimming.

Oak will be 2 years old on July 4, 2010. He has an appointment for July 5 to get his hips xrayed for the final time. He looks good, he moves well, his chiropractor is very please with his progress, so we'll see what the actual xrays tell us.

Definitely keep up with everything we've been doing and depending on the xray maybe make some changes and improvements. In the end, all that is important is a healthy, happy, painfree Oak.
