|Samson the Donkey, roped and grazing in the early morning a few days ago.|
So, we found a new place for him about an hour away. He was picked up and brought to the vet earlier this afternoon for a checkup by his new owners. He'll "retire" on a 30-acre farm with 4 horses. He'll be happy. Right now, we're still sad.
I still believe in the benefits of donkey ownership. However, the benefits of cow ownership, coupled with the economics of backyard milk cows, simply tipped the scales.
Goodbye, Samson the Donkey. We will miss you.
