Who remembers our massive influx of donkeys? We had 28 at the last count!
Well a good friend of ours convinced a friend of his to let us use a few acres of land for some of the donkeys. So we dropped 3 over one day.
We proceeded to geld, microchip and mark each of them and drop them one by one to this piece of land. We had 10 on the land to date.
Today as we dropped yet another two over we met Ciaran a man who has been helping look after our growing herd. (12 altogether). He informed us that our donkeys had been adopted by the whole community of Drumlish/ Ballinamuck. All the neighbours have taken it upon themselves to look after the donkeys, to bring them carrots and give them a scratch and have come together as a community to look after their welfare.
After all the negativity we are forced to report, it gave us such an lift to hear that we have a whole community are willing to care for these donkeys without ever been asked. It restores my faith in humanity. I believe they even have their own Facebook page! That same man Ciaran, then showed us yet another 5/6 acres that we are now allowed use for our 3 pregnant mares, who we know will be equally as well loved as the donkeys.
The team at Hungry Horse Outside and the horses, ponies and donkeys would like to take this opportunity to thank Ron and Ciaran but especially want to thank a lady called Anne McGee who instigated the whole adoption by setting up their Facebook page and has asked all the neighbours to drop vegetables to the donkeys. Anne you truly are an angel, you have done something magnificent and the team will never forget what you have done for our donkeys. I would also like to say a massive thank you to all the residents in the area of Drumlish/ Ballinamuck for the kindness they have showed towards these animals who once faced certain death.
