Amber and Jinny are our charming donkey duo. Come say hello and get to know them.

Jinny Evans is 11 years old. She is affectionate and loves fuss and cuddles, particularly a good scratch. She is very nosey, she loves to see what’s going on and will join in if she can. She loves food and is easily distracted by snacks. Jinny loves going on walks and adventures, but only with Amber by her side.

Amber Bodsworth is 7 years old.  She loves attention, but only on her terms. She chooses to interact with you or not. Amber is keen to try new things, she loves going on walks and adventures. She prefers if Jinny takes the lead, but once in a while she likes to be up front!
