In February of 2009 at a livestock auction we rescued 3 donkeys. An emaciated donkey, who was the mother of the black donkey (Angelito) shown below, and the other was…
…William. The two little donkeys were thin, and all three of the donkeys were covered in lice. Sadly, Angelito’s mother was too far gone to be saved and she passed away at the vet shortly after being rescued. This left us with two little donkeys, probably half brothers.
William and Angelito steadily became healthier, and with treatment and care their lice problem was soon gone. They were two extremely adorable little guys who loved to get out and roam around the rescue.
They recovered from their gelding operations and soon the memory was gone. It was back to their endless games once again. Everyone at the rescue was attached to the little guys, but we knew it was time for them to find their forever home.
“Just wanted to give you an update on “The boy’s” as we affectionately call Williams (my pet name) and Baby (pet name for Angelito.) As you will see in the enclosed photos, they have really filled out and grown taller. Angelito stands a bit taller than William, I think William is bossy and definitely dominant. Angelito is like a frisky colt and all legs. They are inseparable. We are so glad we adopted them together. Thanks for entrusting us with them, they are adorable.”
