Uma Standard Donkey


In late 2006, Uma was admitted to the DSC farm. She was born in 1989 and had lived for 12 years on a small farm under the care of an elderly couple. After the husband’s death, the farm was sold, and the decision was made to request that she be taken in for lifelong care at the Sanctuary.

Uma is a large, dark brown, Standard donkey with an exceptionally soft, thick coat of hair. She has long been accustomed to personal and positive attention and, as a result, she is very comfortable around staff and volunteers. Although she is greatly missed by her former caretakers, Uma has settled in very well in her new environment where she can mingle with her many donkey companions, especially Daisy and Sunshine.
