Abigail, or Abby to her friends, is a brown and white Standard Pinto donkey, born in Southern Ontario in 1998. By the time she was a year and a half old, she was pregnant. This, of course, is much too young for a jenny to be in foal but Abby was fortunate and gave birth without complications. (Her daughter, Rebecca, is at the DSC as well.) Thereafter, the two donkeys lived together and were inseparable. In 2007, however, Abby's caretakers found that they were unable to continue looking after their donkeys and so Abby was admitted to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada for lifelong care.
