Living with free animals is a fascinating experience. It was difficult at first to differentiate between the donkeys, and even between the few dogs. After two weeks I recognized most of them. A friend of hers found out about Reba and Willie and called us, anxious to remove them from their miserable living situation. At our shelter, they will have plenty of space to wander, graze, and swim, like all geese deserve.
We also took advantage of this time to distribute the morning tasks. The dogs had to be taken out, the donkeys let out, the stables cleaned up, Stevie the pig had to go to her enclosure and some old donkeys needed daily care: they were brushed, their eyes, ears and hooves were cleaned.
