UPDATE on our Bucket Fund Donkey Pony 5!






We have a week left in this month… so we still have time to help them all!  But I wanted to give you a happy update on the three that we have helped today!

OK, here was the original pic.

The original story photos.

THIS MORNING!

As of yesterday, we had enough donated to get three of them re-homed before the holidays!  And, luckily, one of you readers, who happens to live in Grass Valley, offered her home to the pregnant jenny and the two mini horses.  *I have actually seen the proposed home, and I was very, very excited when I heard that she was interested in these three.

Things moved quickly and the fuzzies arrived this morning to their new home where they will be fussed over and treated like royalty.

Happy Sigh.  I love when things work out so well.

Can you believe this?!  From kill pen in Texas to horsey nirvana in Grass Valley… I only wish I could tell the person who braided the mini’s hair before they were dropped off in the kill pen.  Now THAT would be the perfect Christmas gift.

The mini pair and the pregnant jenny arrived at Jen’s house this morning. Everything happened quickly and wonderfully for these equines and this lovely human.

ANY CHRISTMAS LEFT-OVER STOCKING STUFFERS FOR THE REMAINING TWO… and maybe another?

If you have the inclination, we’d love to do the same for the remaining two equines (pony and jenny) who were in a kill pen in Texs – and maybe another if we can-!  Their fees (for bail, vetting, meds, worming, feet, transportation from Texas…) is $350 each.  Not much considering all that has happened since they were saved from the Donkey Hide Tea market and kill pen.

All donations are 100% tax deductible!  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Farrier Day! And a dust-up.






Fernando came today!  We were so busy chatting that I forgot to take enough photos!

These are all pretty awful… I was not on my game today.  However, I did post a sweet pic at the end.

Good Boy Finn. Always a gentleman.

I turned around to this… Mo and Dalton fighting over a non-plussed Missy Miss.

Mo is a tough donkey – they all are. He was a wild BLM donkey before he came here – and it shows. He can hold his own against the mustang.

When they got in the corner, I yelled at them to knock it off. Missy Miss walked away and the boys stopped.

Back to normal. Missy Miss is in the shade. Dalton has forgotten all about it and Mo is scratching his rump on a post.

This s a horrible photo of Beautiful Girl with half of Wrigley in the background.

Another horrible shot. This time, Missy Miss.

Here is Dalton, looking sheepish. You can see he lost a chunk behind his ear… he has wet spots and bites all over him from his dustup with Mo. Clearly, Mo landed more bites than the other way around.

Mo is a tough donkey! He didn’t have a scratch on him.

Dalton turning his head to take Fernando’s phone out of his pocket…

Dalton, still pouting over his defeat… Norma in the background, waiting her turn.

A horrible photo of Gwen. I had just totally done her mane, too…

Since I took such awful photos, here is a pic of a darling cabin that would make a great tack room/girl hut. I love it!

DECEMBER BUCKET FUND – THE DONKEY PONY 5!
