Gorgeous isn't she? This beautiful, healthy foal was born at the end of July to Beauty, a lovely donkey who was already pregnant when she was rescued. Normally when donkeys come into our care, they already have names, but we wanted to give you the chance to name this dear little soul. You didn't disappoint! You gave us the most incredible range of lovely name ideas.
This afternoon we conducted a random draw of over 1,000 names submitted and are delighted to announce that the name of Beauty’s new foal is Grace suggested by Daniel and Jean Shea from Cambridgeshire.
We would like to suggest the name for the new arrival as GRACE, as she has charm and elegance.
Both mother and daughter are currently at one of our holding bases and will travel down to Devon when Grace is old enough to go on an adventure to join us here for visitors to see them both.
On behalf of over 2,600 donkeys and mules living on our farms, or helping children with additional needs at our donkey assisted therapy centres, we would like to thank you for your donations and suggestions helping to raise over £7,000 towards their care.
Donations are vital to our ongoing work. In 2012 we gave 565 donkeys and mules a sanctuary for life and figures for January to July this year already show 349 donkeys and mules have come through our gates.
