Duchesse came to HeeHaws with her sister Princesse in April 2019 all the way from Normandy!  It was a difficult journey but they made it eventually, weary and hungry.

Another donkey sanctuary in the UK called Flicka asked if HeeHaws could take them and save them from a terrible end. Flicka were kind enough to fund the transport. They had been loved  up until 2012. After that it became a little dark and suffice to say they deteriorated to quite a desperate state. They were emaciated, had lice and worms and were sad, hungry and in need of a lot of love and care.

A much needed visit early on from an Equine Dentist revealed that Duchesse was in her late 30s, meaning now she is around 44. She is a gentle old lady that enjoys her food immensely. Two good meals a day all through the year seems to be keeping her a good weight. She and Princesse are always together and can even be seen playing when the sun is shining and it’s warm ❤️
