If you want something a bit different then look no further. Millie is the only mule on the adoption scheme and she is one of a kind!

She is our very own star. Before she came to live with us at the sanctuary Millie learnt a number of fantastic tricks when taking part in medieval re-enactments. Maybe she will show you a trick or two, but not before she gets a good scratch!

Mules are such wonderful animals and very intelligent. Adopt this beautiful mule today for yourself or as a gift!

Is Millie your perfect match?
