Name: Teddy

Age: 25 years old - Born: 1997

Colour: Grey/black (multicoloured)

Gelding donkey

Likes: Braying on the beach when it's time to go home and resting his head on your shoulder

Dislikes: Midges as he is allergic to them as suffers from Sweet-itch in the summer months meaning he needs to wear a boet rug to stop the midges from bite at his skin (neck, withers and top of his tail)

Story: When Teddy first starting working on the beach he did not like being loaded up into the trailer to come to work or go home and it would take 2/3 people to get him in but now he goes into the trailer no problems at all. In 2004 Teddy won The Donkey Sanctuary Britain's Best Beach Donkey award
