What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
NOTE: Please read the entire event description on the Meetup web site before entering your RSVP. This event will give you a chance to spend all or part of your Easter Sunday afternoon with the donkeys at Donkey Park. We will be petting and interacting with the long eared members and socializing with the other short eared members as well. We'll setup some chairs in the paddock for those who just want to sit, relax, talk, and let the donkeys approach. You can come for the entire three hours or for any part of the time. At this event, we won't have any other planned activities. We'll just play it by (long and short) ear. Please wear clothing and footwear that you don't mind getting dirty, as donkeys love to roll in the dust, and it may be muddy as well. We do have some rules at Donkey Park which you should be aware of. 1. Please do not bring any treats or other food for the donkeys. We want the donkeys to associate visitors with affection rather than food and to avoid unwanted begging behavior. 2. Please explain to your children in advance that, for safety reasons, running is not permitted at Donkey Park. Because there is a maximum of five donkeys we can take on any one trail walk, these events at Donkey Park are one of the few types of events where you'll get to meet and spend time with all thirteen members of the herd including our two large standard donkeys, Susie and Cinnamon, Stripes the zonkey (zebra-donkey hybrid) and our latest addition, Max, the young pony mule (horse-donkey hybrid). NOTE: Even if there is not a waiting list, if you RSVP Yes and your plans change, please change your RSVP to No. We do want to know how many people to expect, to make sure that we have enough parking and enough of our volunteers present to supervise.
