Thanks for posting.

Her ears are wonderful! I once did a story on MAMMOTH donkeys for a magazine. They're really quite beautiful.

Miss Elle is absolutely amazing! I could easily have mistaken her for a horse, I must say! It is fine she is now in a sancturary ... in England where people love animals so much!

That is definitely a very large donkey! Thanks for expanding my understanding of donkeys.

The first word that came out of my mouth was WOW! She is a lovely girl though and certainly not a freak of nature. In my book the only freaks of nature of humans.

I love donkeys. I have never seen one so big. Looks like they have a nice home at that sanctuary.

She's a beauty~ and she's very fortunate to be at the Sanctuary.

She is very beautiful but I hate seeing her exploited. A mule is a cross between a horse and a donkey. She looks like a horse in body with a donkey head.

Was there no place in the U.S. for "Miss Ellie"? Just curious why she was "imported" into a sanctuary, and if she will be used for breeding because she's "unique" or "unusual"?
