Meet Daphne receiving a lovely warm shower followed by a rub down with a super soft towel that one of our supporters has kindly donated to us following our appeal for bath size towels last week.
Daphne has made Paccombe Farm her home for nearly 20 years after coming into our care in 1992.
She is now the grand old age of 31 and sometimes finds it difficult to groom herself and keep her coat clean; which is why she is receiving a lovely warm bath.
We have recently had installed a brilliant shower room which allows us to give the donkeys a jacuzzi like hose down before we lather them up in shampoo. They have all the suds rinsed off before a snug towel down.
As you can see by the light in the shower room it is more like a beauty parlour than a stable!
Can you help?
We are looking for kind supporters to donate any bath size towels that they no longer need so we can get donkeys like Daphne warm and dry as soon as possible.
If you can spare a bath towel for our donkeys, please send to:
General Farm Manager
The Donkey Sanctuary
Alternatively, if you are visiting, please drop them in at our Visitors' Centre down on the Main Yard.
On behalf of all our donkeys, thank you.
