Moon and Astra are together again.

A baby donkey that had been stolen from a farm in Hampshire has been reunited with its mother after more than two weeks apart.

Two-month-old foal Moon had last been seen playing with her mum, Astra, on May 15 when she was taken from Miller’s Ark farm in the village of Hook.

A huge search was prompted across south-east England after the farm shared the story.

But last night, Moon was found in Buckinghamshire, around 60 miles from her home.

In a post on Facebook confirming the happy news, Miller’s Ark said they were “beyond thrilled” to have reunited the mother and daughter.


They wrote: “Yesterday evening we travelled to Buckinghamshire, liaised with Thames Valley Police and have recovered little Moon.

“We are beyond thrilled and Mum and foal are finally back together. Moon appears to be in good health, thank heaven, and we will make sure that Moon and her mum Astra get lots of love and care as they re discover each other.

“It is because of all of you, amazing people, who have supported Moon, Astra and the team at Miller’s Ark, sharing this story far and wide – and now you have brought her home.

“A huge thank you to all streams of the media who spread the story further, Thames Valley Police for their quick response and Surrey and Hampshire Police for their work behind the scenes.”
