A WONDERFUL LIST

October 24, 2013

Each equine in care at the DSC is known personally and his or her condition – both psychological and physical – are monitored every day.  Our staff are alert to any changes in behaviour and, should anything unusual slip past them, we can count on our attentive volunteers to remark upon noteworthy developments. Of course all of the donkeys and mules are known by name; nevertheless, particular physical traits are always helpful when identities need to be confirmed.

As you will see, this identification list is long and thorough and it serves to underline the uniqueness of each donkey and mule for whom we provide a lifelong home.

 

GROUPINGS OF DONKEYS BY PADDOCK

 

The donkeys, mules and hinnies at The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada are listed here by paddock

      Hi Audrey: Angus is very much on the list! When it was transcribed, however, he ‘fell off the bottom of a page”, I am told and, thanks to your keen observation, he is back on the list where he belongs. Thank you for alerting us. Sandra
