The Donkey Sanctuary is always pleased to make new friends and last year welcomed photographer Meghan Brosnan from the USA to document some of our work. We were thrilled to see the stunning results of Meghan's visit and share her blog about her time with us here:
Last year I had the unique opportunity to join filmmakers Ashley Sabin and David Redmon in England and Ireland as they filmed donkeys for their documentary Choreography. Nollaig was one of the donkeys they documented. He was found abandoned in Ireland, and was rescued five days before Christmas by The Donkey Sanctuary, whose mission is to provide a safe environment where donkeys and mules can live free of suffering. Nollaig was in bad shape. The rescue team believed his hoofs had never been trimmed in his eight years of life. I met Nollaig while he was recovering from his terrible neglect in the care of vet Eamon and his family. They had taken such good care of him that he was ready to move to The Donkey Sanctuary where he was eventually introduced to the herd. I was blown away by all the love and support that went into caring for Nollaig and his fellow donkeys at the Sanctuary.
