Our donkeys are often called upon for special visits and are very used to coming along to homes and centres where the residents can get close to them and enjoy their company.
Due to the calm and gentle nature of donkeys, interaction with them can provide great therapeutic value. They love all the attention they can get and are very responsive to being stroked and hugged.
Because our donkeys are so calm and gentle they have even been into the bedrooms of people who are severely ill and bed-bound to try and raise a smile and spread a little joy. It is wonderful to see the response that engagement with these lovely animals brings.
