Popular Sponsorship Star, Domino the donkey, celebrates his 23rd Birthday today (May 30).
Domino’s brother Nero celebrated his 29th birthday earlier in this month, so Domino is now happily stepping into the lime light for some birthday treats.
The friendly donkey has been with us for many years having arrived in 2009 with his brother Nero.
He has a big fan following and is sponsored by lots of our supporters who give regular donations to help with his and our other resident’s upkeep.
In return, they receive regular updates from Domino, who is extremely grateful to every one of his fans for making sure his life is a happy and healthy one.
These two donkeys share a strong bond and live happily together within our male donkey herd, which is now on their summer pasture and on view to visitors.
Rebecca, who is team leader at the Visitor Centre Yard where our donkey herds live, said: “Domino is doing really well, he is loving being out in the field and this has helped improve his moods so we have less grumpy episodes.
“Dominio is still enjoying all the donkey enrichment we are doing and having the odd play day with the younger donkey boys.”
For his birthday he shared a donkey friendly cake made from fibre nuts and carrots with Nero.
Happy Birthday Domino.
