George came to Fields of Freedom together with his best friend Charlotte. Both George and Charlotte were obtained from a zoo in Denmark by a woman running an institution for troubled teenagers in Aarhus.
On a regular basis, this woman would buy both horses and ponies to keep on her farm. She did this so that the teenagers in her care could ride them and enjoy taking care of them.
The kindhearted woman heard about George and Charlotte being kept at the zoo. They were to be slaughtered as food for the tigers and lions. She managed to have the donkeys freed and brought to her farm.
They were still just foals and small and fluffy when they arrived. The teenagers loved them and spent a lot of time with them.
But as they matured and grew older, the teenagers lost interest in them. They couldn’t ride them like they could the horses and ponies on the farm. George and Charlotte were often forgotten and left to themselves.
Now at Fields of Freedom, they have probably never been happier, and they have become a part of the main herd of donkeys. George is still very shy around the rest of the donkey herd. But he is never shy around his soul mate Charlotte, who he just adores.
You can often find the two of them together frolicking in the fields or playing chase. Recently George has started to grow closer to Aslan, and they enjoy some rough-play most mornings when they head out to the fields.
