Back a few months ago at Olde Baggs n Stuft shirts, we brought the plight of donkeys being used as roping "dumbies" to your attention and asked for your assistance in a letter writing campaign. Thanks to all who helped and thanks for all the good thoughts for the sweet donkey named Patrick. If you missed that post here's a link.
After Ry had fallen in love with Patrick because he voiced the thought that he and Patrick had a lot in common being outsiders. He was overjoyed when Morning Bray Farm bought Patrick out of his horrible situation and came to live with the 4 other long ears; Bernard (Barnyard), Ellsworth (Worth or now Big Red), Nigel and Fergus. The kids and I all gather around the computer every morning before school and check on Morning Bray Farm and all the dogs, ducks, donkeys and more, and Carson's place 7MSN where Alan, George, Lucy, the long ears and the gorgeous Hank the horse live with cats, a dog named Smooch, a pot bellied pig, chickens and wildlife.
Well, I sent the owners of MBF a drawing that Ry and GK had drawn of the objects of their affection, which are displayed on the side bar of MBF, thanks Justina and Don. After which, these lovers of animals we kind enough to invited us to come and meet the long ears.
I have had a love for donkeys, burros and mules since I was a kid. I have a collection of donkeys and carts, donkeys of all kinds and don't tell anyone but I may be more excited than the kids. So when we come back, I'll bore you with pictures, tales and tails.
