Jennet (Female donkey)

Ariel came from a farm in the Kawartha area where she was housed with cattle as well as 10 of her donkey friends. Ariel and her friends had no appropriate shelter, nutrition, or care. Within the herd, there were also intact male donkeys thus Ariel arrived at the DSC with a foal, Melody, by her side. We suspect that this foal was not Ariel’s first baby. And as it turned out it would also not be her last. Within a few months we found out that Ariel was expecting again and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Gwyn, in October 2022 here at the Sanctuary Farm.

When Ariel arrived at the DSC she was quite unsure of her new life.

With time, patience, and gentle handling from our staff and volunteers, Ariel has come out of her shell and has adjusted to her life at the DSC. Although she has made new friends, she can most often be found hanging out with her old friends, Brie and Cayenne.
