Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys have released a super-cute animation featuring three equine characters
‘The Greatest Gift’ is a new Christmas animation from Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys and tells the heart-warming story of how love and building strong relationships can heal the bodies and hearts of working animals.
The short film features three friends – Dinky Donkey, a character from last year’s animation, Harry the horse and Molly the mule – who, after being saved by a young girl, have the chance to give back. The video highlights the importance of a horse-human bond and demonstrates that if animals are shown love, they’ll love in return.
Brooke supporter and Dragon’s Den star, Deborah Meaden, recorded a voiceover for the animation and was so pleased to be supporting them again after her visit to one of Brooke’s projects in India in 2013. As a horse owner herself, Deborah knows how important the bond we have with animals is and that this can impact our understanding of their needs.
Speaking about how climate change is affecting our planet, Deborah commented: “working horses, donkeys and mules need our help more than ever before.” And that’s where Brooke comes in. For over 80 years, the organisation has been focused on improving the lives of working equines in low- and middle-income countries worldwide. The horses, donkeys and mules are used to support the livelihoods of millions of people and Brooke continues to make long-lasting welfare improvements to these animals’ lives.
