Sue enjoyed a country upbringing with horses,dogs and cats, but she always wanted some donkeys of her own.
Her first opportunity to own a donkey came when she lived in Snowdonia, North Wales and her donkey family has since continued to grow.
A combined love of rural France and the need for more land resulted in a move to the Charente in South West France, where the donkey heritage is still particularly strong.
Two donkeys, Precious and Mari accompanied the family's move and one of these has since had a foal. Two more donkeys have also joined the family.
