Visiting Foley and Fergus

In September we visited donkeys Foley and Fergus who were rehomed in 2016 to the 'Garden Project' at the Central Mental Hospital. The Garden Project comprises beautifully tended gardens, polytunnels, animal enclosures and paddocks at the 30 acre hospital site in Dundrum.

Foley and Fergus have settled well into their new home

Caring for Parsley

In 2019 a group of 14 donkeys from County Cork came into our care. Parsley was one of the youngest donkeys in this group. Unused to being handled, he was nervous and frightened. Parsley was thin and his lice infested coat was dirty and matted. Our Veterinary Team gently clipped his coat and cared for him with tenderness and love.

Over time, the young donkey settled and began to trust our grooms in New Arrivals. Parsley now lives in the Buffalo Shed Group on Hannigans Farm with his friend BeeBee and some other young donkeys.
