Vinnie is a 14 year old big standard donkey who came to us after being adopted 10 years ago . He had been living with a horse all this time but we decided to put him in with our donkeys. The moment he saw Jibbets he followed him around and stayed by his side. 
 
And then the magic happened! We had not seen them play before we had put them together, but guess what….they started playing like typical happy donkeys do, carrying jolly balls around, chasing each other and sharing their hay. Both are so happy now being in the company of another donkey.
 
Vinnie & Jibbets are happy together and bring out the best in each other, but they do not need to stay together. They are good friends but not bonded. They are both proof that you should not judge a book by it’s cover. They would like to go where they have another donkey friend where they can continue to play and be true donkeys.  
 
Vinnie is very sweet, but is not keen on seeing the farrier. We are still working on making him more comfortable with that. They both don’t do well with smaller animals. Goats, dogs, mini donkeys, mini ponies and sheep will be a problem.
 
We would be so happy if someone finds a place in their heart for these two friends who are just enjoying the company of another donkey.
