Angel and Cracker

Hello everyone, my name is Cracker and my mummy is Angel, such a pretty name, but then she is VERY pretty!
Mummy says I can tell our story 'cos I am getting to be a big boy now, so here goes....

I may look gorgeous now, but I did not always look like this. Mummy told me we were born to be sold as meat by a man who had lots of animals, but then he got ill and stopped looking after us. Mummy got really skinny and didn't have enough milk for me to drink, so I got skinny too. A lovely lady who rescues animals took us all to her shelter, but didn't have the resources to keep us, it rained all the time and our skin got very sore, that's when HeeHaws stepped in to help her, help us. One day a HOOGE lorry arrived, which was very scary, but mummy got on, so I followed. It was a VERY long journey and when we arrived, my legs were very weak and wobbly, but WOW, you should have seen it, GRASS, loads of it, a bin full of lovely hay and OMG, a straw bed inside a lovely shelter for us to lay on, we had come to heaven!

We were treated for lots of wormy things and mummy had some medicine for her throat and we put on lots of weight, the scabby bits on my ears and nose, from standing in the rain healed up. My aunties at HeeHaws say I'm a good looking boy but a little monster now, I think that's a good thing, isn't it? I didn't always want to wear a head thingy, but learnt very quickly and mummy is very proud of me!

We came here with Holly and Caspar, he's a bit older than me but we are bestest friends and when we started to feel better we used to play and eat together all day long, eventually we had a field all to ourselves which was fab. Then a couple of months ago a lovely lady and man (Sarah and Rob) visited heeHaws, they gave us ginger biscuits and lots of cuddles, they oohd and aaahd a lot and asked if they could take us home. After HeeHaws checked out their place we left to start our new adventure at our very own forever home...we are so happy!

Help us to save other donkeys!
