Sara Rose and her daughter Lily are in the barn for Sara’s dinner. Sara is the oldest donkey at the sanctuary at 47 years old. Sara’s teeth have worn down due to her age and she gets a bowl of equine pellets to boost her nutrition. Sara was quite old to have a foal at 41 years old. As jennies (female donkeys) continue to go into heat their entire lives it is up to the owner to control reproduction. Lily is now 6 years old, always with her mother and quite a favourite at the sanctuary. She loves being groomed and having her neck scratched. Come visit Sara and Lily at the sanctuary from 1-4pm Thursdays and Sundays year round.
