Rosie is the oldest, she’s thirteen years old.
She’s black in colour and quite small.
She has a lovely temperament.
We got Rosie from a Spanish man who worked in a timber yard.
We think Rosie might have worked there, but we aren’t 100% sure because we picked her up from his home at the weekend.
Domingo is a seven-year old male stallion.
Domingo was two when we got him, he was running wild on a mountain side with a stallion horse.
His neck was covered in bite marks from the bigger stallion’s assertive behavior.
We moved him to a nearby finca with Rosie.
Both donkeys were pleased to see each other, and were happy living an idyllic life under the Spanish sun.
The marks on Domingo’s neck weren’t serious and his coat soon grew back.
Rosie changed from a sad little thing with a dirty coat to a bright-eyed girl with her ears up and a black shiny coat that has a purple hue in strong sunlight. She is so much fitter now too.
Soon Rosie was pregnant. Unfortunately her first foal was still born, which left us all feeling sad for a long long time. Then she was pregnant again but this time everyone was celebrating as she gave birth to a fit and healthy baby boy, who we named Chico.
Chico is lovely. A placid donkey. Not as striking to look at as his two-colour father, Chico’s kind of mottled and fluffy.
He has a red-brown coat with long wispy blond hair growing from his ears. He’s cute.
If you click on the donkey’s name you can find out more about them. (adding this asap)
We have other animals that we’ve rescued and adopted. A cat that followed us home and adopted us.
A lamb with no mother we found in a thunderstorm who we bottle-fed, she now lives with Domingo and Chico.
Dogs from rescue centers. Two cats with amputated legs … we’re animal crazy … can you help us?
