Slade House Farm is managed by Maxine Carter and it is the only farm open to the general public so please do come and visit. It is home to about 200 donkeys who live in small groups which can be seen on many of the walks around the Sanctuary.
The groups consist of:
- Blind donkeys
- Diet groups
- Bad breathers
- Laminitic donkeys (foot problems)
There is also a herd of Poitou donkeys as well as a larger group of older donkeys that require special care.
There are a couple of donkeys who keep the staff and visitors on their toes with their lively antics! Bill and Ben are twin brothers. They came into the Sanctuary in 2003 and are now part of our show team who visit local events to promote the Sanctuary.
