Bonnie definitely has her heart in the right place. She is always trying to be ‘helpful’ by picking up the grooming brushes when they drop on the floor before hiding them.

Bonnie is a tall, inquisitive donkey and just loves being centre of attention. She’s always trying to sneak into the donkey queue for a second groom, if she hasn’t already hidden the brushes!

She lives in our biggest herd at Sidmouth. Along with fellow adoption donkey Ruby, she is one of our tallest adoption donkeys and is easy to spot as she towers above all her friends.

Why not make beautiful Bonnie part of your family by adopting her today as a gift for yourself or a loved one?
