Donkeys in the rain


Ruby and Joseph II at the Donkey Sanctuary,  Sidmouth,  Devon,  April 2018


The weather was far from Spring-like on my recent trip to Devon: the rain was way more constant than April showers; the sun was exceedingly talented at hiding.  But I couldn’t resist popping down the road to see the donkeys.

I didn’t expect to find any outside their barns – donkeys don’t have waterproof coats – but there were a few hardy, or daft, ones that braved the weather.

If you can’t get there in person you can visit them via the webcams at the Sanctuary’s website.  There are many ways to give support to the donkeys and their helpers, including adoption – and Ruby is one of those available for adoption.

  1. I’d love to have a few donkeys. One of the highlights of our penultimate day in the Algarve this winter was coming across one working. She looked very happy but clearly wasn’t really in the mood for working!
