In December 2012, we responded to a query from a concerned member of the public about a neglected donkey in Cork. On investigation, the team found a male donkey in a wet field with no access to shelter or adequate feeding. His hooves were so badly overgrown that he could barely walk and movement was very painful. As a result of being left out in the elements, he was suffering from a painful skin condition called rain scald.
We quickly brought him into our care where his intensive treatment began. As it was almost Christmas, we named the donkey Nollaig (Irish for Christmas). With lots of treatment, love and attention from our dedicated vet and farm teams, Nollaig has become an incredible character.
We are delighted to see how he has developed after his tough start in life. Today, Nollaig is a sweet natured donkey who would love to be your friend. Why not adopt him as your new friend?
