Another busy day at ERF – we picked up Piona, a beautiful Baudet cross whose elderly owner is no longer able to look after her. Despite never having travelled before and not being used to head collars, she loaded well and wasn’t too stressed at the other end. She is now in the field beside Nanette and they are chatting over the fence.
When she is re-homed, she must have a companion as she is used to having at least 2 other donkey friends. She is in good health and has regularly seen the vet and farrier, she is also inscribed in the Baudet de Poitou Livret B having 3 out 4 pure Baudet grandparents. She will make a lovely companion but also has the potential to do more with the right family. Like all Baudets, Piona is very large and strong but also calm. We will, of course, home check any prospective Guardian and she will be re-homed under an ERF contract.
