Looking after over 500 donkeys here at Woods Farm our work's cut out in making sure they're all cared for, fed and mucked out. So you can imagine how we feel when we look up and capture moments like this.
Remember our Christmas appeal this winter where we asked for help to enrich the lives of our donkeys and mules during the winter months? Well, Lisa took these two photos of Bill and Ben happily playing tug of war with their much loved toys.
They spent hours entertaining each other, as well as ourselves, just watching them play. We thought you would like to see what your donations helped provide - not just in terms of money - but how you have helped provide mental stimulation for our donkeys.
Donkeys and mules are both intelligent and social animals. As such, a bored donkey or mule is not a happy animal and this can affect their mental and emotional health leading to behavioural problems.
So from Bill and Ben and all the donkeys at Woods Farm a big thank you for providing us with our toys, we love them!
If you're interested and have the time and space, Bill and Ben are currently living in our foster group at Woods Farm waiting for a loving home to foster these two cracking donkeys.
