We’ve all needed a bit of extra refreshment in this week’s soaring temperatures, and the residents of The Donkey Sanctuary are no exception.

Special ice lollies have been made out of fruit and vegetables frozen in water, and given to the donkeys to cool them down.

A spokesperson for the sanctuary said: “The ice lollies not only help keep the donkeys cool, they also provide a valuable form of enrichment.

“Donkeys love exploring, and this activity allows them to exhibit their natural foraging behaviours - a key factor in improving donkey welfare.”
