We would like to say a big thank you to a very kind lady in Diss for her kind donation enabling us to buy our winter hay and lovely soft bedding for the Donkeys and Ponies we are so grateful.


We are very grateful to our very kind friends for their support enabling us to acquire extra winter feed and warm bedding for our lovely donkeys and ponies especially for the dry spell we had this summer causing us to have less grazing. We would also like to thank the Jelley family for their support in memory of Jim a big thank you to everyone



Unfortunately little Dazzle had to go into intensive care for a good few days as he suddenly became very poorly and it looked very uncertain for this beautiful little pony. The brilliant team at Paton and Lee looked after him so well day and night and with all their kind care and medication he pulled through. We would like to say a big thank you to Tony , Cassie and all the fantastic and kind nurses who got him through horrible worrying time we cannot thank you all enough. Now he is much better and enjoying his time out grazing love this little man he is such a brave little fighter.



Thank you to the kind people of Essex and Suffolk for their kind donations which has enabled us to buy extra Hay and Woodchips for the Donkeys and Ponies a big thank you to everyone.



We would like to welcome little Daisy Mae to our Donkey family. Daisy Mae arrived in a very frail way. She has not been fed very often and unfortunately has lost quite a lot of muscle around her body due to a very poor diet. She also has a bad eye where she has been hurt which is of great concern to us as she has been given no veterinary treatment. This all hopefully can change for Daisy with your help we can help her to get through this trauma she has suffered.

She is the most kindest, sweetest natured little Donkey and we want her to have the best treatment she deserves. Any donation you would like to give however small to help Daisy Mae would be greatly appreciated and we will update the website on her progress. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts if you can make this happen.

The Donkey Forever Care Home would like to thank Stuart and Fiona from Norfolk for their kind donation for the operation for Daisy Mae's eye we are so grateful to them both.

We are so pleased with the New Boots that were brought for Wez our older Donkey by a very special lady. Wez had a very painful hoof infection and was unable to go out for quite some time until he recovered. Thank God he is more comfortable now and is able to go out in his paddock with his new boots on. He is a very happy Donkey now xx
