Bello, our 20 year old Dutch Warmblood horse (gelding) has been having many troubles with incontinence and a severely enlarged bladder. You can read all about his fascinating journey to the hospital and view a slideshow here. If you would like to contribute to his hospital fund, there is a link on that page for that, too. Thank you!
Thanks to all the wonderful people who have donated to make this new barn a reality! Please read about our updates here.
My name is Blair Stanford, and I originally learned about Star Gazing Farm via the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). I particularly like working on events that introduce the public to the SGF animals and that promote education and interest in the farm.
Dee Dee Donkey is a fat, feisty, sweet, spry little Miniature Sicilian donkey. We adopted her from Days End Farm Horse Rescue in 2002, partly to be a companion, and partly to be a guardian to the sheep and goats. She’s incredibly affectionate, and will lean against you asking for butt and head scratches. Her age is estimated to be nearly 40, but no one really knows. Despite her age, Dee Dee can still move really fast if she wants to!
She’s incredibly sweet around children, and has even tried to sit in a friend’s lap one time while he was sitting on the ground weeding. Like most donkeys, Dee Dee does not like dogs – she now accepts residents Sam, Sullivan, and Ti-gba as belonging to her flock, but other dogs are fair game for her, so we always discourage people from bringing their dogs to the farm, as she will try to attack them (and indeed, that is her job – to protect the sheep and goats against possible predators).
