Don't worry, Judy is still with some of the donkeys at the old place. She will be moving bt I would guess she needs to put up signs first as I have been to the new place a couple of times and I still don't think I could find it on my own. It's quite complicated to find but to give you a clue, heading to paliokastitsa it's a couple of miles before you get there down some tracks in the woods.

A kind forumster has suggested to me to ring Judy when I want to go, and arrange to meet her at the old place, and follow her! Apparently she goes up to the new place regularly to tend to the donkeys up there.

Just wondering if Mapman could draw up a small map with directions from a certain spot on how to find the new base, charge a fee with maybe a percentage going to the sanctuary, or is he now retired, just a thought. lorac

There is a map with directions on Judy's website with directions to the CDR. When she has moved the map will be changed to the new location. At present she has not moved and it is not possible for her to give a definate date just yet. If you want to visit CDR at present you would have to go to the old place but contact Judy in advance and she will advice you where and when to visit. Dont worry she will advise you all as soon as she has a date and can take visitors at the new location.
Yes Lorac, i am sure that mapman will also put the location on his map, I will contact him about it and see if we can arrange that.
In the meantime as SueLa adviced read Judy's blog on her website she keeps supporters up to date on there.
I have spoken with Judy this evening, she is well and also the donkeys, they are having a better winter than in the past and she is very positive about the future. Thanks to you all for your support.

I second janeto's comment about the Silva Project. it's well worth a visit. The horses have been saved from the verge of extinction thanks in no small part to the dedication of the project founder and staff.
However, if you would like to visit it is better to give them a call before going as the project is a working riding school. Also only children (normally up to about age 8 or 9) are allowed to ride the Skyrians because of their size - and lessons need to be pre-booked.
