Monthly Archives: July 2013
Summer has arrived at last at the “Donkey Paradise” after a rather cooler and wetter spring, however,we are well prepared for the summer sun with our wonderful new camping area for volunteers and friends. A great big thank you goes to all who helped to build the toilet/shower block and to put a fence around the plot to provide a peaceful and sheltered area.
The month of July has been very hot here in Asturias and the animals have been looking for places in the shade. We need to keep an extra special watch over them at these times and especially to ensure that they are provided with plenty of clean, cool water in their buckets both inside and outside the stables. However, the heat does not lessen their appetites as you can see from this photo I took of Niko eating the flowers from the planters.
