We said “Goodbye” to HAPPA Pilgrim, one of our donkeys born here at Shores Hey who found a Forever Home on our Loan Scheme!
Pilgrim made his journey to his new home and is living with another donkey that has recently lost his friend and is desperate for company. Donkeys form very strong bonds and so it was lovely to hear that Pilgrim and his new donkey buddy Paddy have already become best friends!
Neville, Pilgrim’s new Borrower explains the joy that HAPPA Pilgrim has brought to the stable block and family;
“Paddy and Pilgrim stay together all the time, whether in the field, stable or shelter and it is such a relief after losing Paddy’s partner of twenty years so suddenly. Pilgrim is also happy to be with all our family and loves our eight year old grandson. He keeps us all on our toes, constantly following us about, even when I do not want him in my workshop with me! Please pass on my thanks to all the HAPPA team; we were so desperate to find a partner quickly for Paddy, who was fretting very badly after the sad loss of Murphy…
…it is full credit to you all that you pulled out all the stops to do the necessary checks, documentation, agreements and signatures so quickly and efficiently which put the donkeys at the fore. I would certainly recommend you to anyone else in the same predicament as we were in. The girls who delivered Pilgrim were brilliant and so efficient in ensuring our premises were satisfactory for a loan to be agreed and we look forward to a long connection with your organisation.”
