The Donkey Sanctuary received a very warm welcome from the Burn Equestrian Centre in Belfast, this was the host venue for our recent ‘Introduction to Donkey Care Course.’ Participants included those interested in rehoming donkeys as well as several owners with newly acquired donkeys. The course was provided by Donkey Welfare Adviser Jane Bruce.
The course covered all aspects of donkey management and donkeys ‘Sooty’ and ‘May’ were on hand to help participants develop confidence in handling donkeys safely. A thoroughly enjoyable learning experience was had by all.
Special mention must go to keen donkey enthusiasts -Leta and Richard who traveled all the way from Limerick to take part in the course.
A big thank you to Pauline Faloon (Centre Manager) and the management of the ‘Burn’ for their kind hospitality.
The Sanctuary runs Donkey Care Training Courses throughout Ireland at various venues and these are an ideal introduction for those who would like to rehome donkeys or indeed simply want to learn more about the wonderful world of donkeys.
