Kleo is a  hard worker, very independent. While intelligent and friendly, Kleo a strong streak of selfishness and sharp cunning and should guard against being egotistical.  She is popular, cheerful and quick-witted. On the other-hand,  can be stubborn and impulsive. but strong and friendly.
They have a high spirited nature and are changeable. This makes them hot-tempered, rash, and headstrong. They are always falling in and out of love. Quick to warm to someone, they are just as quick to lose interest.

Here's our donkey of the month December, KLEO.  She arrived with Apollo four years ago, they were in a tourist fun park in Hersonissos, pulling an olive grinder round & round and giving children rides until the both got sick with this skin di...sease. When they arrived they were both in a terrible condition and very weak. We treated them with creams, injections & antibiotics and a good healthy diet. A month later they were much better and happier...


This is Kleo when she arrived...her wounds were much worse than Apollo's, the infection had spread to her eyes too infecting them and making them very sore, runny and puffy. We used an antibiotic cream in the eyes twice daily which has helped a lot

Kαλημέρα/goodmorning from our Donkey of the Month KLEO ♥
KLEO loves her food! She is always one of the first ones to finish and then goes to the others who are still enjoying their food. She tries to push them out of the way so she can also finish their meal ;-) Lucky, most of the other donkeys love their food also and won't give up that easilyEvery Spring after the olive harvest and pruning is over there is nothing the donkeys love more than to roll in the soft ashes in the field after the burning of the branches. Here's a picture of our donkey of the month KLEO enjoying the warmth of the ashes

KLEO, curious as alwaysKLEO...looking distinctively Christmassy in her new red rug very kindly donated by a wonderful lady in West Sussex England. Most of our younger donkeys grow thick warm coats but we have many elderly, senile & 4 blind & partially blind donkeys who may have trouble finding their way back at night
