Hello everyone,


Jay here (that's me in the middle).  I can’t tell you how chuffed I am to be able to write to you all… I wondered when it would be my turn!


It’s all happening here, there is a man with a digger, I think that’s what it’s called, and it looks very big to me. He’s making a big hole next to the box where they wet the hay for the horses.  I heard the volunteers say it’s called a soakaway!  I have no idea what that is, but I hope it is for playing in! My pals, Paddy and Patch and I can see everything that is going on from our enclosure, so we are keeping a close eye on him.


He’s also making all the ground next to the volunteer’s tearoom flat.  We don’t know what’s going on there and I haven’t heard any gossip about it, even George and Felix who know everything that’s going on haven’t heard, so we’ll just have to wait and see… it’s all very exciting, although why you would want flat ground I don’t know. I like climbing things not flat ground!

Paddy has just reminded me to tell you – not that I needed reminding – a few weeks ago we had lots of visitors.  They came especially to see the animals that they sponsor. Apparently, that is like their best friend animals. We made quite a show of climbing on the fence and rubbing our heads on our sponsors, they like it when we do that, it makes them feel wanted – we like it too because we get lots of cuddles and hugs.

The sponsors had tea and cakes and looked all around the sanctuary, and all said they had a lovely afternoon. I asked for tea and cake but wasn’t allowed any. I did get a bit of extra hay though so that was nice. 


We’ve also had a visit from the Scouts – gosh what a good time we had with them.  They gave us lots of elder and we gobbled it all up.  Their visit also gave Paddy the chance to show off (not that he needs an excuse), they were all laughing and cuddling and stroking us – we loved it. 

Paddy and Patch got very excited and were running around like mad things and then they had a play fight banging horns together to entertain the Scouts.  They all thought it was such fun!


The other morning, whilst waiting for breakfast to arrive, Harley and I had a little chat. Harley is my friend the pig that lives opposite. We were saying that we are both really looking forward to the open weekend at the end of August, all the animals just love seeing the visitors.  Harley wanted to know if there would be extra food for him – he is always looking for food!

Talking of food, I can see our tea arriving but before I sign off, on behalf of all my animal friends we would like to clap our hooves and paws and say a big thank you to all the lovely people who have bought us treats and toys from what we’ve heard the volunteers call the Amazon Wish List. 


We all wondered why Maggie and Cheryl from the sanctuary were so excited when all the packages arrived. It was like Christmas – they were whooping with joy!  I’m not exactly sure what this wishing list thing is but I like it anyway. We were given lovely hay balls which we play with every day.


Paddy, Patch and I wondered if we wished for 5 breakfasts each everyday, if they would arrive too?  They haven’t yet but we keep wishing.


Anyway, I will sign off now.  I’ve enjoyed writing to you all and we hope to see you soon.


Love and bleats


Jay, Paddy and Patch

(I had to put their names too or they would be unhappy)!
