Horus

Whole male donkey of 17 years, bay, medium size, one of the 77 donkeys of the Pantesco breed (of Pantelleria) saved from a difficult situation where he was fed on bread and lived tied to the chain in the stable, while during the day he was dragged, always with the chain tied to the neck, to a tractor to change the grazing area.

We remind you that in our association the recreational, sports and training activities are carried out with the donkeys of the school and not with Horus since the management of a stallion donkey is reserved for expert technicians.

Charlie

Castrated male donkey, gray sorcino, large size, of Romagnolo breed, son of the stallion Rosmarino, the donkey was tamed to run through the poles and ride a horse, it was given to us a couple of years ago by the owner who for reasons of health could no longer take care of it.

Now he enjoys life with other donkeys and walking along the wonderful paths of our area.

  Mula Daisy

Mule medium size daughter of mother mare and dad donkey, she is 38 years old (30 from the booklet, due to a typo) and we recovered her in the mountains in July 2020 after a tourist report.

Given her condition of arthrosis that in some days does not help her get up and chewing problems caused by the lack of some teeth, we did a fundraiser to help us with daily expenses.

Mula Mora

Mule medium size, daughter of mother mare and father donkey, recovered in the mountains after a tourist report was donated a few months ago and we will take care of it as best we can, meanwhile it delights us with its particular verse, the "nitraglio" that begins neighing and ends braying. Her very cute ear is caused by an old bite from her mule brother when she was a little filly.

Farfui Pony

Castrated male pony, 9 years old, of Shetland breed, came to us in the fall because it was difficult to manage by inexperienced and was not suitable for children, in addition to the fact that he has a genetic defect called patellar cramp, but he has more heart than a thousand. horses and since he has been with us he has brought out a sweet and sociable character.

White Pony

11-year-old pony, after having spent a whole life without leaving her box / pen with little care, she came to us and we looked after her trying to physically heal her, improve her social skills and help her regain her mental balance.

In the photo the change he has already made in the space of a week at our center.

Horse Roby

21-year-old Quarter breed male gelding horse, super intelligent and in excellent physical shape, he spent his life bringing adults and children closer to the world of ethological riding, which ensured that he remained in excellent mental and physical health. Now he has joined us to spend the rest of his life with his family walking along the wonderful paths of our area to experience new adventures.

Lama Su Coccu

Lama bottle-fed from the first moment he was born as his mother was without milk and was therefore destined to die without help. After the first 3 months spent at home (he had very low immune defenses) we started taking him for a walk in halter and at the age of 4 months he did his first IAA in a class with kindergarten children. Now he often interacts with adults and children at demonstrations and events. Even now that he is one year old he is very playful and cuddly!

Ringo

This donkey is no longer there but it was the beginning of a dream and it is worth remembering it, it was large in size, cross with Martina Franca, very affectionate, nice and sensitive, with a great desire to live, we recovered it all age of 21 from a difficult situation, sparing him a bad end, castrated and cared for, at 24 he was donated to the Asinelli Refuge where despite his old age problems he lived peacefully his last years in the company of other donkeys, up to age of 28.
