Rest in Peace PrimRose. You will be greatly missed and never forgotten

 
PrimRose used to pull a cart at Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto and was then shifted around from farm to farm for about five years before becoming Sheila’s first donkey. 
Prim had lived her best life with Sheila for 27 years and knew how loved she was. PrimRose will be greatly missed and never forgotten.e, the namesake of PrimRose Donkey sanctuary passed away peacefully on February 1st in her 47th year. Prim was an amazing girl who was Sheila’s first donkey-the one that started it all! She was a wonderful ambassador for the sanctuary, visiting long term care residents, participating in parades and Easter services. She liked to wear her halter a little off to the side, her own fashion statement, such a special girl. Prim was also a very good sport, wearing her tiara and pearls for special occasions.
