 Ceilidh

Ceilidh (pronounced “Kay-leigh”) is a standard donkey and is the sister of Daisy.  Both Ceilidh and Daisy were donated by Sue McIntosh of the Healing Hooves program and came to live at Dreamcatcher in 2006.  Before coming to Dreamcatcher, they worked with Sue helping children and youth with mental health issues.

 

When Ceilidh was born, her mother refused to feed her or look after her.  Ceilidh was fostered out to a loving family where she was bottle fed.  Soon after, Daisy was born by Ceilidh's mother.  It was assumed that Daisy would be treated the same as Ceilidh was but in fact, Daisy was treated well by her mother and was able to stay in her care as a young jenny. In the end, both Ceilidh and Daisy went to live at Sue's and now reside at Dreamcatcher where they help people understand that life may

sometimes seem unfair but it often works out for the best in the end.

 

Ceilidh is very sweet and usually calm and laid back. She loves working with people and enjoys a good ear scratch. Her best friend is her sister Daisy and the two of them are joined at the hip. If separated from each other they become very distressed and when they are reunited both will nuzzle and dance around together, sometimes braying gleefully.

 

Ceilidh and Daisy have an adopted brother, Mini Donkey Moonshine who usually follows them around. Moonshine likes to play and like any younger sibling can sometimes be a pain! Both Ceildih and Daisy are tolerant and loving toward Moonshine but will put him in his place if needed.

 

At some point in Ceildih’s life she over ate and foundered. This is evident by the large fat deposit in her neck which causes her neck to flop to the right side. Ceilidh did recover from her time of founder and hasn’t experienced it since, however her neck will always remain flopped to the side.

 

Both Ceilidh and Daisy LOVE treats!  When they see you at the treat barrel they will put on a singing show of ‘Eyawing’ and braying so loud that you have no choice but to feed them.  They love working with people and help them to overcome their fears, accept things the way they are and learn to be loving and kind.  They also help people increase their frustration tolerance and learn to be patient. They are great at helping people become good problem solvers.
