We thought you may like to meet David, one of our resident donkeys. David is 16 years old and has been out on our foster scheme twice since arriving into our care in 1998 when he was just 2 years old. He now lives in Old Yard at Paccombe Farm as he has made friends with a pair of our elderly residents.
Since transferring to our farm a little over 6 months ago David was one of the donkeys Lee Hooper (farm groom) made friends with. Every day when Lee arrives on the yard David makes a 'B' line for him. Then one day last week Lee turned up for work with a project he had worked on in textiles when he was at school. It was a brilliant hat and shaped perfectly to fit a donkey!
The hat fitted David perfectly when Lee put it on him and for the rest of the morning, anyone who entered the yard was greeted by David showing off his new attire!
