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.
