Donkeys

The Adoption Information for our donkeys is the same as it is for the horses

PLEASE NOTE –
Animals can sometimes be unpredictable. 
Once you adopt an animal from us you are responsible for your own health & safety, as well as that of others and the animal itself. 
We do not accept any responsibility for an injury to any person or damage to any property which may be caused by an animal you take from us.

 

 

 

Cria and Eeyore

Cria & Eeyore

Cria was completely underweight, had a huge lice infestation and had grossly overgrown hooves when arriving into our care.

Eeyore, her son, was not in as bad shape as his mother due to the fact that she was still feeding him so other than a worm dose and lice treatment we did not need to do anything immediate for him.

The farrier was called to sort Cria’s hooves and her lice treatment was commenced.  After their 21 days in isolation they were let out to the fields in order to help Cria rebuild her muscles and get her walking correctly.

Slowly but surely Cria’s weight has improved, Eeyore has been gelded and both of them have been chipped & marked for passports so they are now available for rehoming together – despite there being other donkeys here that they could mix with they tend to stick together.

If you would like any further information on Cria and Eeyore please contact us.

NB.  We do not allow any of our females to be used for breeding purposes.

 

Kenny – Booked for a Home

This young guy has had a very tough start to life so his physical recovery is slow.  We think Kenny is approx 3yrs old but to look at him you would say he was only a yearling due to his small frame.

Kenny is now gelded, chipped and marked for his passport.  He has made great progress with being handled but this will obviously require ongoing effort to completely eliminate any nervousness.

If you would like to offer this boy a home where he will never have to be hungry or scared again then please contact us for more information.

 

Simon

Abandoned in a school yard, after failing to be sold at a fair, Simon was suffering from rain scald, an infestation of lice, worms, etc and very overgrown hooves.

We have estimated his age to be around 8yrs, he has now been gelded, chipped, etc.

Simon is a dominant male when there are males & females together so he would be best in a home with only other males or females but not a mix of the two.

He is still getting use to being handled but has not displayed any nasty habits around people so we do not foresee any problems with helping him become easier to handle.

If you would like more information on Simon please contact us for more details.

 

Miley – Booked for a Home

At approximately 4yrs of age, Miley arrived into our care due to his owner passing away.

Although he was a bit nervous at the beginning he is now showing that he likes to be rubbed & scratched.  He is now gelded, chipped, etc so is ready for rehoming.  Miley lost some weight after being gelded but he is putting it back on with each day and now that he has the freedom to walk & play in the fields his return to full body condition should be a quick one.

Despite Miley having already sired at least one foal he does not display any stallion traits and gets on fine with males and females.

If you would like more information please contact us.
