The Old Woman is the original owner of Donkey. She makes her only appearance in the first Shrek film when she wants to give Donkey to Lord Farquaad's knights for being such a blabbermouth. When asked to prove if he could really talk, she fails, losing a chance to receive 10 shillings. The Old Woman is also responsible for kicking Tinkerbell's cage and making Donkey "fly". She is then arrested by Farquaad's guards, never to be seen again.
