Since poor Joseph is no longer with us we've been giving Rachel a lot of extra attention and if I'm being honest she hasn't seemed lonely, in fact she's been rather perky! But everything we've read leads us to believe that donkeys don't like being by themselves, so we'd been on the look out for a friend for her.
We've been so lucky as one of the nurses Lloyd used to work alongside had been thinking about rehoming her donkey, Sheba.
Now Sheba has actually been here for a holiday before so we know her well and were really delighted when Penny said she'd be happy for her to come and live here.
She arrived this morning and Sheba just wants to eat grass and Rachel just wants to follow her around. I have a feeling it's going to work very well.
Sheba is a very pretty white donkey ~ she's just losing her winter coat just now so is looking a little scruffy but once it's brushed out she'll look her usual stunning self!
Oh and just to let folk know 'The King's Speech' was absolutely brilliant. Can't recommend it highly enough, really, it was just ace!
