HE’S found love, but the city’s newest miniature donkey is still searching for a name.
Matchmakers at the Botanic Gardens Zoo have secured Jenny, the four-year-old long-term resident donkey, a new husband.
Strategic Parks Operations Manager David Walker said the 12-month search across NSW and Victoria to find Jenny love ended in the friendly seven-month-old jack from a donkey breeding farm in Tamworth.
Jenny, the black and white girl, is the second last foul of the zoo’s original couple.
“We’re giving the community the chance to name Jenny’s new beau, so if you’ve got a great idea then please let us know,” Wagga City Council’s Director Environmental and Community Services Janice Summerhayes said.
"There are plenty of options – perhaps something to do with Wagga, or maybe in honour of a famous donkey.
The yet-to-be-named jack is grey roan with chestnut on the ears. The Irish miniature donkey is likely to grow to 37 inches.
Ms Summerhayes said Jenny’s husband was getting on well with visitors to the zoo and she was having a great time showing off her new husband.
“Hopefully this will be happily ever after for Jenny and her new husband and all things going well they can start a family at the zoo,” she said.
