  • Early morning staff were surprised to find that one of the rescue donkeys had given birth overnight

Staff at the Andalusian Rescue Centre for Horses (ARCH) were given a lovely surprise recently when one of the centre's rescue donkeys gave birth overnight.

The little black foal has been named Saracen after the sponsor Saracen Horse Feeds.

The birth brought a welcome spark of optimism at the centre; ARCH receives no government funding and relies heavily on income from its charity shop in Alhaurín el Grande which, like all retail businesses at the moment, is closed indefinitely.

Information about the charity can be found on their website (www.horserescuespain.org).
