Donkey Days

Today I got to visit The Donkey Sanctuary of Canada! They are a not for profit organization that rescues retired and abused donkeys and gives them a safe place to live out the rest of their lives. A group of us from work had the opportunity to volunteer (and play with the donkeys) for the day! I learned a lot about donkeys and mules, including: did you know that a mule is a mix between a female horse and a male donkey? But a mix between a female donkey and a male horse is called a hinny! Also, donkeys and horses have very different personalities!

The Donkey Sanctuary is open to the public on Wednesdays and Sundays for a small donation. It’s a great place to visit!
