Note: this is a longish post....I really want you to see the pix and videos I did there on the day - make a cuppa and sit back and enjoy......and I've added a couple of sketches I did there too....
This is at Town Barton Farm...(here's their Blog)
....up country lanes to the farm

(this sign, which is about 4ft tall, was made by one of the grooms, Sophie, at Town Barton Farm...very cleverly done)
Gorgeous setting in the Devon countryside
and groups of other mules and donkeys
sketching them is difficult...they move about constantly...
Of course, the donkeys want to know what is happening with all these visitors and often get in the way of a 'photo shoot' !!
and here are a group of mules running down the track
Everyone stood along the fence line to watch this.....
The work that the Donkey Sanctuary do for these animals is exemplary,
their care and well being No. 1 priority and it was a pleasure to see how happy
~A great day had by all~
(We then continued our journey, and stayed in Bournemouth
but I'll save that for another day).
