Dinky Donkey Walk and Games. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! Julia is such a lovely genuine person, who cares passionately about Maverick, Goose and the 3 beautiful horses, which certainly shows.Learnt so much from Julia about the donkeys. First we groomed the donkeys and had cuddles with Maverick, who placed his head on my partners shoulder and with eyes tight shut, throughly enjoyed his ears being rubbed. My partner enjoyed it as much as Maverick. Had a lovely walk, stunning scenery which Goose and Maverick ignored as more interested in what was available to eat! Came back for some agility games, which were brilliant. Goose and Maverick are so intelligent and quick to learn, loved it when Goose picked up the 4 small hoops and gave them to me! Helped with their tea and brought them in from the field and into the barn ready for a well deserved nights rest. Can't think of a better way to spend time, just sad that we don't live closer as would love to volunteer our help. Thank you so very much Julia, we loved every minute.

My partner and I went on the lovely dinky donkey walk with Julia. The donkeys were so sweet and we had a beautiful autumnal stroll through the countryside with them. I would highly recommend this to animal lovers and anyone who enjoys an unusual day out. The walk was leisurely and not at all difficult, but I would highly suggest wearing waterproofs and wellies. I will be back in the near future as I have fallen in love with Maverick and Goose.

Thanks Hannah - it's certainly been muddy recently but the leaf colours are absolutely beautiful at the moment! Do come back for the longer hill walk in the summer as know you'll love it. Kind regards Julia - Good Day Out

Fun afternoon with the dinkey donkeys. Julia was really friendly, the donkeys behaved despite some damp weather and we managed a brief pic between showers. Highly recommended

This was such a wonderful experience that my Husband and I did in October 2021. We had to reschedule from earlier in the year due to lockdown and Julia was very responsive and friendly on email. We arrived on time and met Julia who is exceptionally friendly and welcoming and met Goose and Maverick the donkeys who are so loved and cared for. Sometimes you worry about whether the animals are genuinely cared for and loved, or whether they are there to make the owner money (well, I do) and it was obvious from just seeing their very plush surroundings that they are very well loved family members who just enjoy walking with people and getting cuddled and brushed. We had a fabulous walk, a very lovely and tasty picnic and learnt all kinds of interesting do key facts. Don't forget your wellies as it can get very muddy and print out the instructions just in case you get lost. We did have reception for most of our car journey there, but it does get a bit sketchy in places. We both absolutely loved walking with the donkeys and would love to visit again when we are in the area.
