In January 2008, The Horse Trust gave sanctuary to 14 of the sickest horses, ponies and donkeys rescued from the horrors of Spindles Farm, Amersham. They all required monitoring round the clock as they were severely underweight, depressed, and suffering from a variety of health problems. Lola arrived with her foal Nora, who was also suffering from the effects of lack of nutrition and neglect. Luckily, both mother and daughter made a miraculous recovery.
Lola can be a little bit timid and quite nervous with new people, but with a little encouragement, she will always come and say hello. Nora is the much more confident one of the pair and is very cheeky! Both girls are often used for various internal and external courses ran at The Horse Trust alongside their other donkey pal Briar. You will often find them all up to mischief in the donkey paddock!
