Benji arrived in spring 2023, after we received a call to say he was living alone on a remote site. He had no paddock, no shelter and was trying to sleep huddled up on a patch of concrete in the pouring rain. He arrived with us soaked in urine and covered in his own droppings. He received a thorough health check however, as well as treatment for rainscald and worms. He also had his feet trimmed and enjoyed some good, solid food, lots of hay and a deep straw bed, for what may have been the first time in his young life...
He is obsessed with wheelbarrows and loves to playfully stop us moving them, so it’s hard to get far with our dung-picking when he’s around! It's so hard to comprehend the awful situation he was in, but now he is living the life a donkey should, with company, care and love.
Benji is very friendly, cheeky and naughty!
