Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys has released a new Christmas animation with a voiceover from Dragon’s Den star and Brooke supporter Deborah Meaden, and aims to highlight the importance of the relationship we have with animals, and how building strong bonds help heal the bodies and hearts of working horses and donkeys around the world. The Greatest Gift premiered on Brooke’s YouTube and other social media last night.

If horses and donkeys are shown love, they will love in return – that’s the message in the one-minute animation, which features a Dinky Donkey character from last year’s Brooke Christmas animation, The Little Christmas Helper, but this time featuring two new friends - Harry the Horse and Molly the mule.

Brooke focusses on improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules in low- and middle-income countries around the world, who support the livelihoods of millions of people. A key part of its work is building compassion and strong bonds between animals and their owners.

Deborah, who visited one of Brooke’s projects in India in 2013 said:

“I was very pleased to support Brooke again in recording a voiceover for this Christmas animation. As a horse owner myself, I think the bond we have with our animals, and the understanding that gives us of their needs, is incredibly important. Frequent climate related shocks, like the floods we saw in Pakistan this year, showed us that working horses, donkeys and mules need our help more than ever before.”

The trio of characters also featured Christmas cards, available when purchasing a virtual gift through, where you can buy gifts such as first aid kits for owners, a permanent water point for horses and donkeys, or training for a local vet.
