Nuala came into the care of The Donkey Sanctuary when she was 6 months old. She was born blind and her owner thought that the Sanctuary was the best place for her as she struggled with her condition.
Nuala received exceptional treatment from all of the vet and farm staff who ensured that she settled in to her new surroundings comfortably.
Nuala gained confidence after finding her soul mate Jossy. 31 year old Jossy has taken on the role of Nuala’s carer and they have a strong bond. The pair are now inseparable, they groom each other regularly and are both very happy together! It is fascinating to see Jossy guide Nuala around the paddocks and stables, ensuring that she does not bang into anything and always there to protect her. Jossy also tells off the other donkeys if they come too close to Nuala as Nuala gets frightened easily.
Their connection is truly heart-warming and epitomizes the loving nature of donkeys.
