Nollaig is a very special donkey. In December 2012, The Donkey Sanctuary 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 very wet field with no access to shelter or adequate feeding. The donkey's 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, Nollaig was suffering from a painful skin condition called rain scald.
We quickly brought him into our care at The Donkey Sanctuary 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, Nollaig has become an incredible character. Staff at the sanctuary are delighted to see how he has developed after his tough start in life.
