The cows were very happy that the sun has come out this week, a hopeful sign that the grass will finally start growing again. We are putting some work into the sanctuary gardens, planting vegetables for human and animal food. Our rescue bunny Mindy is flourishing and has a nice outdoor cage now. The ponies are enjoying spring, and we are feeding them nettle, which is good for their laminitis. We're also supplementing their diet with chickweed and other nutritious spring greens. The days are getting longer, which makes the work so much easier!
Finally we'd like to pass on our deep gratitude to everyone who donated to our hay fundraiser or spread the word. We're delighted that we reached our target, and the hay bales will be arriving soon!
