Bert and Ernie are our two lovely rescue donkeys and have been at the farm since 2016.

Because the farm is very small, we try and swap around our donkeys on a regular basis. This allows donkeys to experience life on a city farm and spend time in the countryside. Best of both worlds! 

Bert & Ernie are going to be moving to their new home soon, and we can't wait to meet our new donkey friends, when the The Donkey Sanctuary has chosen them for us! 

Donkeys on average live 30 years and should be kept in pair, as they get terribly lonely by themselves!

Donkeys come in a wide range of sizes and colours and can weigh up to 500kg, so it is to be expected that their rough and tumble, is a little bit rougher than we are used to, so please don't worry if you see our donkeys chasing each other around the paddock, kicking and biting. It's a perfectly normal behaviour for these guys! At the end of the day, they will always snuggle up together in the stable and be the best of friends again. If they are not trying to dump their food bowl on the other's head... 

It's safe to say they keep us on our toes!
