Adoption Star Arya is growing up fast!

Our adorable Adoption Star Arya is growing up fast!

You can join this gorgeous not-quite-so-little donkey on Sunday 16th July at Redwings Oxhill when she’ll be celebrating her third birthday with a special party.

From 11.30am, you’ll be able to watch Arya enjoy a pampering birthday groom before treating her to plenty of cuddles during her parade when she’ll also get to tuck into her very own delicious cake.

View Arya’s full birthday party schedule here.

Under all that fluff, this lovable youngster 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 has overcome heart-breaking grief.

Very sadly Arya’s mum Millie passed away from severe lameness when Arya was just a few months old. Thanks to lots of TLC from her carers, Arya has grown up to become a happy and cheeky addition to the Redwings 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!

After partying with the birthday girl, why not take a stroll around the rest of the visitor centre to meet some of the other 90 rescued horses, ponies and donkeys?

There’s tasty snacks and warm drinks to enjoy in our Nosebag CafĂ©, plus an on-site gift shop full of souvenirs for you to take home and treasure with all proceeds going towards caring for our residents.

We hope you can join us!
