    Prepare To Fall In Love With These Woolly Donkeys

    They're called Baudet de Poitou and are adorable.

    This is a Poitou donkey. They can grow to 8ft tall and have a wonderfully shaggy coat.

    But they're endangered. There are fewer than 1,000 in existence.

    Luckily there's a sanctuary in the New Forest for these gentle giants.

    Retired vet Annie Pollock has been breeding the animals on her farm for the past nine years.

    The donkeys are continually groomed to keep their coats furry and comfy.

    Pollock says: "I love their temperament. They're so funny and friendly, and they teach you patience."
