This is a photo of Little Butch that I took a couple of weeks ago. It was a beautifully sunny day, but he was preferring the shade of the stable and hedgerow behind while his two donkey friends - Jack and Fred - grazed in the field.
I remember Little Butch from "donkey week" holidays at the Sanctuary before I joined as a member of staff. He was born here in April 2002 after his mother was relinquished into our care a month earlier.
I have since found out that Little Butch is a great donkey ambassador. He's a member of the "show team" who regularly attends county shows to help promote the Sanctuary's worldwide work. He has even won "Best Turned Out" at the Devon County Show.
