Our new donkey

My wife Terry (left) got a new friend yesterday. Donkeys are some of the best friends you can have. They listen to your every word, pay close attention and never gossip.

This jennet is named Hellen. It's short for "Hellen Damnation"

She's adorable!

And you're right about Donkeys, we got an old broken-down Eyore-looking male from a horse rescue farm 2 years ago...and he is a wonderful friend who is supremely grateful for every mouthful of food, treat, and pat on the side he gets. Although he *is* very mouthy if I'm 5 minutes late with his breakfast!!

good luck,
Tom A

Love your new donkey, Terry. We had one a long time ago that would take my husband,s work gloves out of his pocket when he was working around him, he would also pick up tools in his teeth and tease you to get them. He became very agressive with the dogs as he thought he needed to guard the chickens and geese.They are good guards in the barnyard. Enjoy!!!!

She's already halter broke but we need to train her to a saddle and bridle. Perhaps a cart harness too. She's a very gentle donkey.
