Molly and Paddy the donkeys have gone to a good home-and now they have a pony,alpacas, calves, doves, cows, chickens, and two children to keep them company.
Napier, NZ residents, Judie and Mick Stones made an appeal in the local free weekly newspaper, for anyone who could provide the lovable quadrupeds a happy home. They needed the donkey paddock to make room for accomodation units and all they asked in exchange was that a donation be made to the local Medical Rescue helicopter.
"We were really surprised by the number of inquiries and people ringing with suggestions for what we could do with them. We had about 20 phone calls," Judie says.
In the end, the Stones, chose a lifestyle block out of Napier as the new home for the pair-funnily enough, owned by the man building their accommodation units.
Carl and Caron Wezel own a lifestyle block, and say the donkeys are attracting plenty of attention.
It's already become a common sight to see cars parked by the paddock, people are stopping to feed them apples or just giving them a pat. We love them," Caron says.
