So we thought it would be nice for you to learn more about our beautiful Donkeys on the Farm.
Although a lot of you will have met our fabulous four legged friends on your visits, you may not know a lot about them and how wonderfully helpful they really are. They support vulnerable people during our Nurture programme, to help them overcome emotional issues, gain confidence and life skills. 

Here goes:

MERLIN: Sex: Jack (male)
Born: Dingwall, Highland 
Age: 14 years old
Time at the farm: 7 years
Personality:
Merlin is a gentle giant who arrived at the Farm the same time as Arthur, and they have been inseparable ever since. He loves long gentle walks with Arthur through the woods and can panic if Arthur is not in sight. He loves to be groomed and will stand there patiently while you brush him, but is still unsure of his ears being touched due to the abuse he’s had in the past. Even with this bad start he’s become a lovable and friendly character.

MADOC:
Sex: Jack (male)
Born: May Hill, Gloucestershire 
Age: 2 years old
Time at the farm: 1 year 
Personality: 
Madoc is our youngest donkey, but don’t let his height or age fool you, he’s a strong headed Donkey teenager who decides what to do and when in his own time, but once he gets going his chilled persona makes our staff and young people feel very relaxed in his company. Madoc is a lovely boy who prefers to keep the company of our older Donkeys, whilst he grows in confidence at the Farm.

ARTHUR:Sex: Jack (male)
Born: Ireland 
Age: 16 years old 
Time at the farm: 7 years
Personality:
Arthur is head Honcho of the Donkey family and can be a bit of a bossy boots, though his nature can seem boisterous he’s a caring Donkey that loves cuddles despite his size. He loves his food of Straw and Heylage and is always first in line at breakfast time. Despite his love of food, he also loves to keep fit and loves walks and leads the other Donkeys proudly at the front.

COCO:Sex: Jack (male)
Born: Carmarthenshire, Wales 
Age: 16 years old 
Time at the farm: 1 year 
Personality: 
Coco is a beautiful grey Donkey who loves human companionship and can always been seen stood at the gate waiting for attention from passers-by. He’s happy to use anyone close by as a scratching post and give you a nudge when he’s ready to be groomed. Coco is a happy independent donkey who loves walks with his friend Madoc. He's also a good model and isn't camera shy!
