Join in adorable Arya’s birthday celebrations!

Arya the donkey has a scratch

Our irresistibly cute Adoption Star donkey Arya will be celebrating turning two with a special birthday party at Redwings Oxhill on Sunday 17th July – and everyone is invited!

While this adorable youngster loves nothing more than a big cuddle, under all that fluff is one tough cookie! Just like Arya Stark, the character from the fantasy series Game of Thrones that she’s named after, this brave little girl had to overcome heart-breaking grief at a very young age.

Very sadly Arya’s mum Millie passed away from lameness issues when Arya was just a few months old. Thanks to lots of TLC from her Redwings carers and her donkey friends, Arya has grown up to become an incredibly lovable and cheeky addition to our family, as well as a popular Adoption Star!

Arya is also a part-bred Poitou donkey – a very rare breed of which there are only 400 left in the world which makes her even more special!

Arya’s party will start at 11am when she will be treated to a lovely groom followed by a parade in front of her supporters where you can give the birthday girl a big cuddle before she gets to tuck into her own cake! There will also be party games and a quiz trail.

After the party, take the time to enjoy a stroll and get to know Redwings Oxhill’s other 90 rescued horses, ponies, donkeys and mules, and then put your feet up with your own slice of cake in our Nosebag Café.
