Meet Sam, a stunningly beautiful 8 year old gelding, who came to us as a stallion with some behavioural issues and a reputation for escaping. A few years ago, a very kind man rescued him from a life of awful abuse. It took more than two years for him to gain some of Sam's confidence but, being a young stallion, the owner knew Sam needed more help to improve.
Also, the little donkey became an expert at rolling under the electric fencing and, living close to a main road, there was a real danger of him being involved in an accident.
The owner was very concerned about Sam's future and asked if we could take him, which we did in May. He's since been castrated and has begun to settle into the new environment. As with Yiannis, the young donkey we rescued last year, it will take time and patience to build his confidence further, but he's a very sweet natured donkey and we know he will get there.
