Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre

Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected and abandoned horses, ponies and donkeys, while campaigning for the better treatment of animals across Spain. We are a no-kill foundation and provide each rescued animal with a safe and loving sanctuary – either here at our centre or via rehoming – for the rest of their lives.

Rescued: July 3, 2013

Donkey Oaty was once regularly dressed up in costumes and paraded around as the mascot for an English riding school based in southern Spain.

However, when the school went bust, the owner returned to the UK and simply abandoned Donkey Oaty as well as several horses.

Thankfully, one of our keen supporters, Linda Michelle Torr, heard about the case and alerted us to Donkey Oaty’s plight. She had already managed to rehome the abandoned horses and asked us to step in and help this gorgeous little donkey. Of course, we agreed.

Brought to our rescue centre in July 2013, he immediately made friends with a young donkey named Sancho Panza – so, continuing the theme of Spain’s famous Don Quixote book, we settled on the rather funny name of Donkey Oaty.

A happy-go-lucky young fellow, Donkey Oaty is now a friend to all, both equine and human.
