Brave donkey Arya turns four!

Gorgeous part-bred Poitou donkey Arya will be celebrating her 4th birthday this July with her very own birthday party at Redwings Oxhill, and everyone is invited!

From 11.30am on Sunday 15th July, 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. Yum!

View Arya’s full birthday party schedule here.

Just like Arya Stark, the character from the fantasy series Game of Thrones that she’s named after, this brave donkey has overcome heartbreak after her mum Millie sadly passed away from severe lameness when Arya was just a few months old. But thanks to plenty of TLC from her carers, Arya has grown up to become a happy and cheeky donkey, which also means she makes a perfect Adoption Star!

After the celebrations, why not take a stroll around the rest of the visitor centre to meet some of the other 90 rescued horses, ponies and donkeys, who would also love a cuddle?

There’s also tasty snacks and refreshing drinks to enjoy in our café, 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 make it!
