Floris of the Trust

Floris is a very intelligent and expressive donkey. She is a real character and almost talks. She had led a pretty Spartan and hard life but soon took to the comforts of good living; such as a cover, and a small hard feed each day with vitamins, minerals and carrots. Her teeth were checked by the vet as she was having trouble eating the hay and we suspected they had not been done, if ever. The vet was amazed when she checked Floris's teeth and began to work on them. She kept repeating, “I wish I had my camera”. Her teeth were like the Southern Alps. Floris was very underweight when she arrived, but gradually started to gain condition once her teeth were filed More about Floris in Newsletters No's. 5 6
