Staff at the 'finishing school' introduce their class to bunting.
A donkey sanctuary is running its own 'finishing school' to help the animals adjust to the outside world once they are re-homed.
The 12 week program, initiated by The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon, is believed to be the first of its kind in Britain.
Activities include walking under bunting, navigating traffic cones and getting used to people carrying umbrellas.
There are also tutorials on feeding, grooming and handling for the donkeys' prospective guardians.
The initiative started in November 2019, with a current intake of 31 donkeys. Eight donkeys having already gone to homes.
