The donkeys are coming


I received word yesterday that Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue has approved my request to become a Satellite Adoption Center! By the end of May, the big PVDR trailer carrying adoptable donkeys will drive the 15 hours from Tehachapi, California to arrive at our small farm and leave me with six (6!!!) donkeys to care for.

I'm excited, nervous, wondering what I'm getting myself into, and very happy. I think these longears are just wonderful. I'm in good company. Even Marc Chagall liked donkeys.

I'll know in about a week exactly what day they'll be arriving.

Doing the happy donkey dance...

  6. Hooray! I think it's so great you're doing this. I just watched an ASPCA ad that brought tears to my eyes. Just when I was thinking the plight of some many animals is hopeless, you remind me it's not!

  16. Congrats!! I know you are excited and worried all at the same time. What a huge responsibility...and SIX donkeys coming all on the same day??! Whooeee!

    I remember one of your comments to me a while ago about how fast my farm had grown with all the critters.
    But I've never gotten 6 big critters all in one day. hehe
    You are going to be one very busy Critter Mama!
