Hard to believe but Lonnie is getting very close to thirty years of age! Although there's been no sign of him giving up the face pulling and nudging feed sacks, he has begun to show his age over the last year.
No major health problems we're pleased to say, but just those annoying niggles that can happen to any of us as we get older. As you know, the minute we have any concerns about any of our donkeys' wellbeing, no matter how small, we immediately call our vet to come and check everything.
After a thorough donkey MOT and discussion, we all feel that the time is coming for Lonnie to retire from the Adoption Scheme at the end of the year.
We know many of you will be sad to hear this but he hasn't retired quite yet! Also, just wait and see who will replace him; a real little character who keeps us entertained! Can you guess who it might be?
