Shimna was rehomed as a single donkey to Julie in Monahan who already had a donkey called Liam. Liam’s previous donkey companion sadly passed away and thankfully The Donkey Sanctuary was in a position to swiftly identify a new friend.
As the photos clearly show Shimna has settled in fabulously well with Liam the donkey (as well as his new goat friend!). Our Donkey Welfare Adviser work hard to match up the right personality in a guardian donkey with their new prospective friends (whether a donkey, pony or horse). The Advisers also work towards meeting the new guardian home’s expectations of what they want in a donkey, whilst taking into account their handling capabilities and experience.
