Scrumpy Jack the donkey
Scrumpy Jack has now got his own facebook because he has become so popular and loved by all so please follow him to keep up to date!!
Scrumpy Jack gets famous by the day! He is going to be on ITV TV, and now in a wedding magazine!
Scrumpy is being very naughty, here is just some of his damage.. also caused by his partner in crime Lily!
Today, Scrumpy went out on his first ever ride! Sophie was light enough to ride him, so we set off (with Lucy on Ariel( for a stroll around the village. He was fantastic! This was his first ride and he was learning the aids quick, he just isn't very patient when he has to stand still!
Scrumpy Jack is now undergoing training to be ridden (hopefully!( and led without running off! He is doing very well and certainly getting the hang of it.
He has also attempted to eat his way through the fence to the Shepherds Hut! Tim was very angry and put some yucky sticky stuff on the fence to try and keep him away. We now throw him a few logs in the field which he happily carries around in his mouth like his friend Pudding the dog!
Scrumpy Jack was born on the 3rd March 2008 at Burley in the New Forest. He was often to be seen sheltering from the rain in the local bus stop and wandering across the local golf course much to the annoyance of the golf players!
He also had a taste for the occasional cream tea and would often steal the odd scone when no one was looking from the local tea room!
He came to live at The Old Forge when he was 6 months old and arrived during the apple season. He quickly took a liking to our apples in the orchard (hence his name Scrumpy Jack!)
