There are many words to describe Jimmy, playful, charming and a performer to name just a few.

This small donkey is always up for some fun, keeping his grooms on their toes. He likes to play hide-the-broom and runs off with the muck bags when they are trying to clear the yard.

But he’s not alone in his escapades, he’s got his accomplice and best friend Skittles. Jimmy and Skittles are very rarely apart and when they are together, they make sure that they are enjoying themselves, even at the expense of their loving grooms!

Adopt this happy-go-lucky donkey for yourself for just £3 per month, or make someone’s day with this perfect gift idea!
