Help us protect donkeys and mules around the world
This webcam looks over our herd of gentle giants - the Poitou donkeys. Some of our herd stand over 16hh. If you are visiting the Sanctuary, it is worth going on the short walk to see them to appreciate their true size and lovable nature.
However, you may spot one donkey that is a lot smaller than the rest. His name is Barney and has attitude! He is very much at home with the Poitou donkeys and his place in the herd is quite high up.
During the summer months this webcam looks across the large paddock and for the winter months you can watch the Poitous down on their yard.
