Nick came to us in 2004, from an owner who could no longer care for him. He had been moved around from home to home, some good, some less good, & was getting very unsure of himself. NEDDI was pleased to be able to offer him a safe & permanent home. He had an unpronounceable name (& a bit silly, not nearly dignified enough!) so our supporters have re-named him Nick - maybe because it was around Christmas time.

JAZZY was born to Margaret-Joyce in June 1993. She had neglected to mention to anyone that she was going to have a foal and had not changed shape at all to warn us, so Jazzy was just there in the stable one morning! Like all donkey foals he was very naughty but now he is grown-up, and has turned out to be a very handsome donkey, if a little bossy. He definitely does like his own way!
HEATHER came to us in 1994 after her owners were moving to a new home without land. She was going to be turned out on to the moor to fend for herself! She is very calm and sweet natured, and (we think)particularly beautiful. There was a time when she was the troop leader at NEDDI , but she’s getting on a bit now and has handed over “out-door” leadership to Beatrice, who is a bit fitter and more sprightly!
JIMMY came from Blackpool, where he was born into a beach-donkey herd, but because he was a small donkey, and very thin and weak, he was being disposed of. Since being at the sanctuary he has developed quite well, but he is never going to be particularly big. He is quite nervous, but takes strength from his particlar friend Ernie, who is naughty and pushy enough for both of them.
LAURA was born at the sanctuary in 1994. She is just a big baby, and has had to be separated from her mother, Penny, whenever possible because she refuses to acknowledge that she is grown-up now!She is very tall for a donkey and no-one can quite work out who her father might have been. Whoever he was, he must have had a very stubborn streak which he has passed on to Laura.
VALENTINA was born at the sanctuary on 14th February 1996. Her mother was Alice. Valentina can be a bit over-boisterous sometimes, but it is all very good natured.It is taking some time to learn some manners! She has grown up to be a very good-looking donkey and might win some prizes if she entered some competitions. She would definitely win prizes for escaping through fences - she doesn’t seem to believe that the same rules apply for her as for other animals, and just barges through them if she fancies being on the other side.!
