Pennywort Mill Miniature Donkeys had a Christmas visit to a local care home ( Kernow House in Launceston, Cornwall) . They look after people with complex needs including Huntingtons Chorea, Dementia and PTSD. Mini donkeys- Bucks Fizz and 1 year old daughter ,Strawberry Mimosa ( Mimi to her friends) behaved impeccably ( it was their first outing in public although they are well socialised at home) and the residents loved interacting with them so much so they have been asked back for another visit in 2024!
We had an interesting talk and demonstration from Anna Harrison – vet for the charity Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land – about her work. The afternoon consisted a practical demonstration. This included how to weigh your donkey and take his temperature as well as other common ailments and how to spot them. We were blessed with good weather which really helped too! Our hosts were Nicki and Alan Wight and their delightful donkeys. Of her three donkeys Fingle was an absolute star and stood patiently throughout his whole exam!
