The Donkey Sanctuary’s behaviorist is Ben Hart. He was anxious about the safety of a young donkey named Ben. When a female donkey entered the Sanctuary in the United Kingdom, she was already pregnant.
Despite the fact that Ben was her first foal, she rеjесted him. Even nursing from his mother was denied to the miserable little donkey. He was unsure of his identity. From the beginning, the personnel looked after the infant.
Every four hours, Ben received a bottle feeding during the night. All of his requirements would be handled and met by his caregiver. They were fortunate to have Jingles since they knew they had to find him a friend.
Jingles was a female donkey who had previously given birth to a foal and was still unattached to anyone. The Sanctuary’s staff made the decision to permit Jingle and Ben’s relationship.
At first, Ben was afraid of Jingle. Ben would simply flee from her if she got close. The bonding process between Ben and Jingle took roughly 4–5 hours.
Ben and Jingles grew to be close friends. She made a significant difference in Ben’s life and truly helped to lead and raise the newborn donkey. Ben quickly established rapport with every foal born in the Sanctuary and gained some lovely friends. But Jingle was there to watch after him at all times.
Ben outgrew Jingles after a year and now has a solid foundation. He has mastered the art of prolonged stillness. No one could ever guess that he was an orphaned foal because he had grown to be so well-behaved. Nearly 7,000 donkeys have received sanctuary at the Donkey Sanctuary. Ben Hart is happy with how wonderfully everything worked out for him.
