There is nothing Hercules loves more than a bit of love and attention and a good ear rub. He's one of our giant Poitou herd who stand at 14-15 hands high. These distinctive donkeys have long matted fur which needs regular grooming.
Hercules and his friends love spending time with our Quality Time Volunteers who give them lots of one to one attention. Phil Harlow, featured in the clip below regularly grooms the Poitou donkeys, but has a particularly special bond with gentle giant, Hercules.
You too can be one of our amazing Quality Time Volunteers on any one of our UK farms or Sanctuaries. Have a look at our volunteer page to see how you can you give our donkeys the gift of time.
