Harvey came to Remus in 2004, from the same market as Rosie and Dickie. We had attended following concerns from the public. The first thing we saw was this handsome donkey. He had been left tied to the rear of a tatty old trailer in blazing sun, without water or shelter. He looked so lost, and so longingly at anyone that may be able to help him.
Several hours later, he appeared in the sale ring, dragged around by a young schoolgirl who couldn’t have despised him more, elbowing him constantly. His turn was over, no one wanted him. He was worth nothing to anyone. He was to return to the travellers who had treated him so badly.
At the end of the day, we approached the owner and a deal was struck (sometimes the only way to get an animal out of the terrible situation they are in). For several years Harvey lived with his friend Dickie and the horses; he did not seen to realise he was a donkey until one day he heard them calling and from that day, all he wanted was to be part of the donkey herd. He and Davey are the best of friends.
