Marshall, a donkey at Lily Pond Animal Sanctuary


Marshall is a mini pony who was living in the Hudson Valley, only to find himself abandoned when his owner suddenly moved to Florida and left him behind all alone. A concerned neighbor contacted an animal sanctuary and they drove over to investigate, making the executive decision to load Marshall into their van and give him a new home. This is where Marshall met Sheriff, a mini donkey who became his best friend. A change at the sanctuary resulted in Marshall and Sheriff finding a new home here at The Lily Pond in December 2020. Although small of stature, Marshall has a big personality and a gorgeous mane of blond, tan and chocolate. He specializes in obtaining extra treats by poking his nose through the fence rails and batting his eyes, baby kitten style. Works every time.
