Violet was the first animal to arrive on the farm. She is a donkey and came from a race-horse breeding farm. She lived with the horses and was a companion to the broodmares. Unfortunately, when the mares had their babies, they no longer wanted Violet around as they were forming their own family. Donkeys are very social creatures and her caretaker wanted Violet to live in an environment where she no longer had to be alone.

Violet has formed a great friendship with Pia and O’Brien and you will find them running and bucking around the pasture together. Their nickname is “The 3 Amigos” because they are seldom apart and are always getting into mischief!
