home for a donkey?

We are moving house at the end of the year and, as we are going somewhere without land, need to find a home for our donkey. He is a large, un-castrated male, and is around 20 years of age (we have had him for 15 years and he was adult when he arrived). He is used to daily human contact with us and passers-by, but his companion died some time ago and since then he has been by himself, so we don't know how he behaves with other animals.
We are looking to find another home for him, and would also appreciate any recommendations for a donkey refuge or sanctuary.
many thanks

I would recommend having him castrated. It will be very difficult to find a good home for him otherwise.

When I bought my house in Normandy, it came with a couple of Shetland ponies that I certainly hadn’t agreed to buy. When I eventually got the former owner to sort them out, the stallion had to be castrated, at an equally advanced age, for anyone to take him. It seems an incongruous term for a small horse, but I guess it’s technically right.

I would also recommend having him castrated. You can also try and post an add on Leboncoin.

...and some more suggestions from Facebook

You could post this to Cheval66.

If you could pass this on, please: Association Caramel in Tresserre and there is a donkey-farm in Fourques. Good luck.

Ferme du Bonheur in Argelès

You might consider the new refuge in Ceret... ?? Can't remember the name... (Mariana?) But they house horses too...

We have tentatively talked about adopting a donkey on our land where we also have goats. We would need to build him a shelter - what sort of area is he used to grazing and what size of shelter? Also a neighbor had asked us to check if he is very noisy generallly? And also is he used to staying within the confines of a fenced area - if he habitually destroys fences then that would not work for our goats! Also would you undertake to transport him to us and where in the PO are you? We are in Camelas. 0674143490 is my mobile if you could please contact me directly to talk about the possibility of us adopting him. Kind regards, Jane

Please could you confirm whether or not you saw my post offering to try to adopt your donkey? We live in Camelas with wooded land and some pasture which accommodates our goats. The offer is to look after him for the rest of his life , or ours! Here’s hoping that He has found a good home already but if not then please do contact me to see if it’s fomething we can help with. My questions in my last post were just practical considerations I was keen to get more information on.

I've just read a pm from Jane Lawes about the donkey. I could hardly read it as it is in faint text on a black background. Jane, if you see this, it was me who suggested on this thread that you contact La Ferme du Bonheur, but it's nothing actually to do with me, it was just an idea for adopting the donkey

SORRY! I thought I'd caught of all those black backgrounds. Could you try clearing your cache and let me know if it is still the same? In the meantime I will go back through the files and see if I can identify the coding that is causing it.
