Say hello to Oscar!


***Oscar is currently unavailable but seems to have found a new donkey best friend within the herd. Keep your fingers crossed that they continue to hit it off and both becomes available to be rehomed together soon!***




Could Oscar be the missing piece to your donkey puzzle? Your current Donkey’s partner in crime? He is now looking for a very special home as a companion.

We have a very rare opportunity to rehome Oscar as a single donkey to someone with either a fellow lone donkey, or an existing group of friendly donkeys. Since being at Bransby Horses, Oscar has not managed to bond with any of the donkeys in his herd and we would love to see him find that connection and flourish in a smaller one to one environment. Please note, he must only live with other geldings.
Oscar is a very sweet and loving boy who absolutely adores human interaction and going out for in-hand walks to explore. He needs a confident handler as he can become a bit excited whilst out on his adventures! Oscar is a very playful boy and loves his enrichment. One of his favourite games is throwing buckets around and will keep himself entertained doing this for quite a while!

Oscar will need someone experienced and capable of adhering to a strict weight management programme to ensure this special boy continues to become the healthiest version of himself.
