My name is Hannah and I am a glorious young woman of 14.
Let’s get this said now…I am curvy. Curves are good, but perhaps my saddlebags are a little too full. I’m working on it and I’ll get there. No judgement here though, just a load of support to help me get rid of a few kilos.
What’s that you say? You want to hear my story? Oh you guys, you’re so lovely.
I went to my first owners when I was a babe of 6 months and stayed there until very recently. I had a charming and dear companion in a horse and we had a good life. We really did.
Unfortunately, my owners became poorly so it was with a sad heart that they accepted that they couldn’t care for us any longer.
When the sanctuary came to take us away, I panicked. I couldn’t go. I would not get into the trailer and so I was left, alone, but on the promise that they would come back for me. They did come back for me and tried for a long four hours to get me in the trailer, but I couldn’t do it.
I can’t explain my reasons for that, but maybe it was so I would ultimately end up getting the help from HeeHaws.
I was all by myself in a field for a few months, so I comfort ate my way through as much grass as I could. There was a real concern that I would get Laminitis, which would have been terrible as it’s a painful, nasty condition donkeys/equines can get. To be honest with you, I became depressed. I was all alone, without my great pal and was giving up on pretty much everything.
Howard, my old farrier, contacted HeeHaws with the idea that they could foster me, help me shed some of those extra kilos, give me some lovings to prepare me for a forever home.
When Helen the Super Trainer came with Carina and Lin to collect me, she helped me into the trailer within an hour, much to the surprise of everyone around me.
What can I say? I’m delightfully unpredictable and like to keep everyone on their toes.
So here I am at HeeHaws, eating healthy food, shedding some of those kilos, getting cuddles and am able to chat to Hopy and Issejac who are Carina’s horses and am becoming chums with William, who’s an utter delight, but don’t tell him I said that.
Keep an eye out for any adoption or long-term fostering news.
You never know when you might fall madly in love with me and want to take me home.
I promised you an update on any adoption news and here it is….
I have been adopted by a kind and lovely couple, Natalie and Lawrence. I am now in my forever home and am loving it! I am safe, cared for, cherished and I am with my great pal Hopy. What more could a donkey want?
I would like to thank HeeHaws for making this happen: you, and your supporters, are all amazing and I am a lucky girl.
