Andy (Donkey)

4 years old

Andy was all alone on his way to a kill auction when we rescued him at the same time that we rescued Anna and Rudy. We had only planned to rescue Anna and Rudy but we couldn’t possibly leave this poor little orphan behind. Fortunately, Anna and Rudy immediately accepted Andy as part of their little family even though, as our only solid brown donkey, he looks nothing like them. Andy is a sweet, easy going, little guy.

Anna (Donkey)

5 years old

Anna was rescued along with Rudy and Andy while in route to a Louisiana kill auction. When she first arrived, she was terrified of people and ran to the furthest corner of the pasture when she saw us coming. She was protective of her son, Rudy, her adopted son, Andy, but didn’t trust people at all. With some time and patience, she has learned to love us and now comes running when we are in the barn. She is a great mom to Andy and Rudy and her surprise baby (Sam) born in July, 2018.

Gladys (Donkey)

19 years old

Gladys was rescued along with June from the kill pen at Louisiana kill auction. She is very easy-going and friendly. The only time that we see Gladys really distressed is when June has to go to the vet for work on her hooves. Then poor Gladys will stand in the middle of the pasture and bray like the world’s loneliest donkey until June returns. It is heartbreaking but her loyalty is beautiful. Gladys gets along with everyone but her heart belongs to June.

June (Donkey)

24 years old

June was rescued from a kill pen at an auction in December 2017 before she could be sent to slaughter. After years of neglect, her hooves are a constant battle with abscesses and founder but she is a total sweetheart who always cooperates with whatever treatments we’re putting her through. June is a total joy and her bond with her sister, Gladys, is one of the tightest bonds on the farm.

Melvin (Donkey)

9 years old

Melvin was neglected by his original owners and left out in a field to fend for himself where his hooves became so overgrown he could barely walk. A good Samaritan took him in, had a farrier begin work on his hooves and then the farrier brought him to us. He’s a little mini-donkey but he thinks he’s a miniature horse. Melvin is part of the group we call the fearsome foursome with Maggie, Jed and Oreo and pretty much ignores all of the other donkeys. He is a sweet, easygoing and a farm favorite for our visitors.

Rudy (Donkey)

4 years old

Rudy was rescued with his mother, Anna, on his way to a kill auction at less than a year old. He has gone from skittish colt to friendly gelding since he got here. He’s our only solid white donkey and he’s a sweetheart. His best friend is Andy – his adopted brother. He’s also a great big brother to Sam. Rudy loves to play and chase but he never gets too rough. He also loves people and comes running to greet us every morning.

Sam (Donkey)

3 years old

Sam was born here! We had no idea that Anna was pregnant when we rescued her. Because we started interacting with Sam when he was less than an hour old, he quickly bonded and is totally comfortable with us. We like to joke that he thinks he’s just a big-eared dog. He just loves people! He also likes to wrestle with his big brother Rudy but he still spends most of his day side-by-side with his mama, Anna.
