Roll of Honour Some of our residents meet an untimely end either through old age, injury or sheer exhaustion. We have loved them all and they are laid to rest with dignity on the land at Jarjeer. 1 2 Edith died on the 27 November 2013 having spent six months at the refuge. She had been so overworked that she had a lung disease an we believed she was pregnant. One afternoon Edith went out into the garden with her friend, Byed. They spent an hour or two munching the new rocket that was growing on the land. As Mohammed was leading her back to her stables through the olive trees she collapsed and died of a massive heart attack. Edith was buried on the land with great dignity. Lady arrived from the mountains on the 24 October 2014. She was such a gentle soul but seriously undernourished and bad arthritis from overwork in the tourist industry. She lost her fight for life on the 16 December 2014 when she could no longer stand. Betty was a mule that was used for tourism in the HIgh Atlas. She arrived at Jarjeer in a pitiful state during October 2014. We fought so hard to keep her but she was too weak and died on the 16 December 2014. Both Lady and Betty are imprinted on our souls and their memeory drives us forward to work in the interests of all mules. Gus, short for Augustus which means respect came to us in August 2015 from SPANA. A damaged back and without an eye, he was in a sorry state. he loved being with us and became a real favourite until he could cope with life no longer when he left us on the 25 January 2016. Poor Pablo was abandoned in the City and was starving and dehydrated. His indignity was made worse because some scoundrel children were beating him with sticks. He is at least 20 years old which is quite ancient for a Moroccan donkey. He was very happy at Jarjeer and he died peacefully on the 15 February 2016. We are all very sad To lose Harriet who had been picked up following abandonment. The vets visited and it was decided that Harriet should cross the rainbow bridge. She was in a lot of pain from her hoof that had been lost and there was no way we could relieve the pain or expect a young donkey to live her life on 3 legs. Susan euthanised her peacefully on the 6 August 2016 and the men are laid her to rest with the others who have left us. Gallop free and without pain Harriet. Lucky was rescued in November 2015 having been left to die on a building site. He was tethered at the time and has lost his teeth from years of abuse in a barbaric tradition bit. We fed him a special soft diet 3 times a day and he loved his retirement! He died on the 20 October 2016. RIP Lucky. Casper is a very old boy who wandered the streets of El Jadida alone for about 2 years. Rescued by a generous horsewoman in June 2016 he retired to Jarjeer following medical treatment at SPANA in Casablanca. Sadly, he was very frail and passed away on the 7 October 2016 Byed has lived at Jarjeer since July 2012 when she was found tied up without food or water in temperatures of 54 C. She was in foal. She stayed at Jarjeer until her sad demise in January 2017. She became totally blind before her death. Byed was loved by us all. Jack can be seen here with his mother, Mabel. Tragically Mabel died of a heart attack in July 2017. They had been at Jarjeer for just 18 months. Sally was a working donkey on a local farm until 2014. She became too old to work and was very depressed. Her transformation at Jarjeer was remarkable and she enjoyed a happy retirement. Sadly she passed away on the 9 August 2017 Boris came on 23 December 2013. He was too tiny to ride and his owner would have just abandoned him. We thought he was a baby but he was 3 years and became Pallex's father! Boris died at SPANA on the 20 May 2017 following an operation to remove a sarcoma.
