Molasses lived a happy life with her elderly owners on the Mid North Coast of NSW until they both became frail and unwell.  Eventually they had to move from their little farm into a retirement village and the sad moment came to part with their beloved donkeys Molasses and Petal.

Since then Molasses has lived happily at the Sanctuary farm among the many other friends she has made in the herd. Molasses is healthy and is content to live in the main herd with all her friends. Molasses receives many cuddles on visitors days and is sometimes used as a PR donkey in public.
