Donkey Mug - Jimbob
The most popular donkey of my Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary series is now on this fun 15 oz mug that is big enough to give you those few extra sips of morning coffee. The handle and the inside of the mug are pink, and Jimbob's face is on both sides of the mug. Let Jimbob welcome in the new day with a smile!
Jimbob is a popular donkey on the Isle of Wight. He has a lot of admirers and is even called the “George Clooney” of donkeys because he’s so handsome. He arrived at the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary from Carisbrooke Castle in 2017 after his retirement from turning the castle’s giant oak water wheel. The water wheel takes a bucket down a well to the water and draws it back up. Since 1969, the wheel has been turned by a team of donkeys. They perform about 30 seconds of work at each demonstration. Don’t worry, they spend the rest of the day getting spoiled and pampered by the staff on 5 acres of pasture. I even learned Jimbob sometimes fell asleep on the wheel when it was his turn! He is also said to be the best cuddler and always notices when someone is having a bad day. I found him to be very charming and used to getting a lot of attention. He certainly caught my attention.
10% of this sale goes back to the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary to help provide all the love and care that Jimbob and his friends need. By purchasing my products you are not only supporting me to do more of this work helping animals, you are also supporting the sanctuary and Jimbob!
