Early this year we were deeply saddened to say goodbye to little Demos. He was 29 years old and came to us in 2011 as his elderly owner had severe health problems and could no longer look after him.
Demos was a tiny little donkey but had the courage of a lion which at the beginning could make him quite difficult to handle. His feisty nature helped him gain the respect of the other donkeys – some almost twice his size – and although he became well behaved for the grooms, he never lost his bossy nature.
Demos had been well looked after by his owner and while he was with us, he never had any health problems until his final days.
We all miss this wonderful little donkey with the big personality.
