The move is all done! It was a close run thing: I am back to work on Monday for two weeks of summer school, so I have a rest day tomorrow to recover from the move. It has been an amazing effort and I am so fortunate to have the support of friends who share the vision of the space I am creating for the donkeys: particularly Carl who has put more muscle power into the work than I could. (Every muscle aches now: I literally cannot any longer raise my arm above horizontal holding a power drill.)
Rubí was the first to visit level 2. It will not be opened to the donks until all the safety bars and fencing are put in place in August. I will give them each a preview (safely on lead-rope) so they can see what is down there and try out the slopes between levels.
Matilde, Morris and Aitana were going crazy watching Rubí on level 2. Enough work for now! It has been more tgan a month since the heavy work began: building on one site; demolishing on the other. The Elca Seriu field is now cleared of every shred of evidence that donkeys ever lived there: the fencing, the posts, the concrete and timber have all gone. The field has been returned to the landlord.
And on Monday I go back to work… For a rest.
