Himalayan Encounters’ Founding Director Anthony Jones had been thinking about adopting a rescued donkey for a while. When a part of the Famous Farm caught fire earlier this year, plans were made for renovations and the addition of a stable for donkeys.
The farm is an ideal place for donkeys such as Star and Siddhi, who during their working days faced much abuse. They can mingle with other farm animals, and interact with the guests of the farmhouse. After a check up by Dr Sudeep Koirala and a hoof cut by Bipin Rai the donkeys happily explored their new stables,complete with carved wooden windows…
The donkey couple is reportedly adjusting well. Animal Nepal would like to thank the management and staff of the Famous Farm for their kindness. Wishing you a happy stay in Nuwakot, Star and Siddhi!
