Today ERF placed Maddy, Poppy (Maddys foal) and Elly (Maddys sister), with their new adoptive family Tracie and Dave and their 3 beautiful horses.
After a little encouragement, all 3 donkeys were loaded and heading off to their new home in the Haute Vienne countryside. Maddy and Elly are sisters of Asal that we re-homed last Sunday. We are very grateful that Tracie and Dave decided to offer all 3 donkeys a home, thus allowing this little family of girls to be able to stay together for life. Poppy the foal had never been handled until today, but whilst they were all still in the trailer we took the opportunity to get headcollars on and worm them all before letting them off.
Tracie’s 3 horses soon got used to their new big eared friends, even if 30 year old Trigger did find the braying a little intrusive to start with. The donkeys soon made themselves at home after playing follow- my- leader for several laps of the field whilst checking out their new territory.
