Sassy is on the look-out for friends and family

We would like to introduce Sassy to you, one of the donkeys that are cared for by the Aruban Donkey Foundation. Not a spring chicken anymore, she is the great grandmother of donkey Sky. Sassy has a large family at the sanctuary and she recently bore twins. The volunteers did not know that Sassy was pregnant and even less that two donkey babies would be born. Unfortunately one of the two babies died at birth. The other one was called Surprise, but that donkey also died; after just eight days of living. Sassy received extra care during that period, but one would not notice that she is grieving for the loss of her twins. Actually, that is quite normal in the animal world. Sassy is sometimes likened to an Apaloosa horse, as she has a spotted coat.
