Wow November is here – another one of my favourite months.  The weather is certainly changing and the donkeys are growing their winter coats. Soon we will have 108 fluffy teddy bears! 

A few weeks ago I was asked to attend the Ladies’ Circle meeting in Mazarrón to talk about the donkeys and our charity. What a lovely 2 hours! I was made very welcome by everyone, so thank you to all the ladies. 

We haven’t been to Camposol with the donkeys at Christmas for two years, but folks we are back! On Monday 19th December we will be on Camposol B car park with 1 or 2 of our four legged friends. It all depends who is good on the day as to who we will bring!! We will also have mulled wine and soft drinks along with mince pies for you all to enjoy. This is our way of saying thank you to all our lovely supporters who have donated to us throughout the year, so please come and say hello and enjoy a tipple or two with us. Everyone is welcome.

The Highs and Lows Of Rescuing

Sadly we have lost our lovely old girl Platinum who came to us in June. We took her to hospital in Alicante as we couldn’t manage her pain. She had severe laminitis in both front feet and suddenly went downhill. The following day, after having meds which eased her pain, she decided it was her time to leave us and died. She was very much loved by us. We are so sad we didn’t get more time with her. 

R.I.P Sweet Platinum.

Our other girl Lucera Platera is also in hospital with a viral infection. They can’t seem to stabilize her heart rate or get her temperature down, so for the moment she will stay there. She is on steroids and antibiotics so hopefully this concoction will work.

thankfully she’s feeling much better now

If you are thinking – Christmas Presents – what on earth do I get for the grandchildren, husband, wife?  Why not think about sponsoring a donkey or two? It’s really a great gift. You can send me a message or see me on a Monday on Camposol 

If you would like to donate to the donkeys we now have 108 – yes 108! If you are interested please send me a message or Whatsapp.
