Last week-end, our precious little Chip went to live with his new family. As you can see by the picture, he is loved already and is hugged by 5 year old, Molly. She is just the right size for Chip! His new family welcomed him with open arms and introduced him to their 2 horses and 5 alpacas. He (like most donkeys) strolled off the trailer like he knew he was home and started grazing in his new pasture. Nothing bothered him and it didn’t take long before he met his new animal buddies across the fence.
It is always hard to let go of one of these little guys but I know he is being loved, getting lots of attention and good care. Congratulations to his new family and welcome to the world of donkeys.
For those of you who have been awaiting the announcement of Ellie’s new baby, we are STILL on baby watch. This is two years in a row that she has fooled a whole lot of us who are watching her get bigger and bigger and bigger and still no foal. I checked on her tonight about 11:00 p.m. and all was quiet as usual. Please keep checking because as I have said a number of times already, it can’t possibly be much longer!
