Ears the news…
Oh the glorious month of May! It’s my favorite month of the year. Everything seems hopeful and full of promise. The mud has been drying up nicely and the mules are shedding like crazy. I love seeing the birds take off with bits of the mule’s hair to use in their nest building. The donkeys in typical donkey style, take their time shedding their winter coat. We like to joke that donkeys start to shed in August and start growing a winter coat in September.
I am totally blown away by the generosity of all who responded to my request for donations to the rescue for my birthday, May 4th. WOW! Thank you VERY much. Some days it’s difficult to stay in a positive mind set, then “Team SYA” comes to my rescue. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This rescue is my passion, and I could not be doing what I am without the support from all of you.
We are having an Open House on June 2nd from noon to four. I hope to see lots of our familiar friends and meet new ones. Please come meet Zelda and watch her adorable foal Sassafrass, a.k.a Sassy, run laps around the paddock. You may just fall in love and they are ready to be adopted!!
We have two lovely draft mules for you to meet as well as an ASSortment of donkeys of varying sizes and colors. Our great friends from Empowered Equestrians will be here doing clicker training demos throughout the afternoon. If you are not familiar with training using positive reinforcement this will be a great chance to familiarize yourself with this method and Jessica and friends will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We will have our merchandise building open and snacks of course! The address is 23 Saw Mill Road, South Acworth, NH 03607.
Adoptions have started picking up and while their leaving is always bittersweet, I love knowing that animals will have their own special person as their own. We have a waiting list of animals to come in so please spread the word if you know of anyone looking to add some long ears to their family! Adopting two animals makes room for two more to come in and find their new people.
Thanks to the hard work of Hannah Exel, the one who puts the “savior” in Save Your Ass, the animals and the farm are looking pretty great. I look forward to sharing it with you at our open house. ‘Til then…
