This is Gareth, our wonderful trimmer. He takes care of all the donkeys feet and has done for the last 8 years or so.
Having worked in the industry for the last 20 years, Gareth came to France 9 years ago.
His client base goes from Cruese right down to the Lot et Garonne.
We are so lucky to have him as part of our team, all the donkeys love him. Even the most terrified of donkeys end up making friends with Gareth after the second or third visit.
He just has a way with them. He has a calm and kind energy and yet firm when necessary. Some of the donkeys have had horrendous things happen to them in the past and try every trick they can to avoid having their tootsies trimmed, but
Gareth just takes it easy and teaches them that it can be a good experience, that no one will hurt them and that they can trust him. He is never one to rush and without fail always puts the animals first. Gareth is such an important part of our team and we look forward to seeing him transform the hooves of many more donkeys as HeeHaws grows and establishes as a rescue.
Please support HeeHaws in any way you can.
