    And keep Rory from seeing his little man?? I couldn't possibly. Trust me, he NEEDS his donkey donk. He is turning into more of a retard than he already was.

    We do, there are half of a 60' round pen. including the panel with the gate, still at the barn where Rory and Nika live. I meant to go look and see how many, but instead I groomed, banged Rory's tail too short, and got my horse trailer sold (woot!). But we should have enough for the stall plus some, I think. But thanks for the offer!

    Have you heard of the herd of mini donks in Sequim that need new homes? They are free. 13 of them and they can go in pairs, groups and a few singles...

    OK, I found myself giggling before even opening each picture. Odie should be marketed as an anti-depressant.

    Really? Is there an ad? I wouldn't mind a jenny to keep Mini Mo company when I take JD away to ride and show.

    Woot on selling the trailer! And I am glad you have panels. Yukon does have two mini donks at Kim's house, and a pig, and a goat, and a cat, some dogs, and chickens, so I SUPPOSE he is being kept occupied

    I'd like to see the ad. Not that, um, I'm going to do anything about it.

    Ahem.

    Peaceful valley donkey rescue out of OR is facilitating the placement. They are free with a home check. Ages from5-21. Jacks, geldings and jennys. There is info on their FB page but I can't figure out how to link it here on my ipad. Info states they are gentle and you can trim feet without haltering them. They are Jerusalem donks. They are located in Sequim wa.
    Aha! Think I figured it out https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...81778971865997

    Good thing they're as far from me as possible or I'd be having to explain to my husband where the extra donkey came from.

    How's Odie doing? Any Christmas evil burrito pics to cure us from the post-Christmas blues? Any updates on accommodations?

    He is! I'll post pics in a bit, because right now I can't get off the couch. We got his stall built today and got him moved, and ran errands, we left at 9am and didn't get back til 530pm...oy.

    I'm sure he will, he was pretty bushed after the move. Big trailer ride, then Nika being all weird and actually happy to see him and Rory of course was overjoyed.

    It was actually the sweetest/saddest thing EVER . Rory didn't see him hop out of the trailer but Nika did, and it wasn't until Odie was in the paddock with DH leading him to the temp stall that he did. Rory did a little dance not sure which way to go, then went barreling out of the run as fast as his non-graceful self could go. Of course, then Nika got all mareish and possessive for whatever reason, but Rory was so happy. He wouldn't leave the temp stall until I went out in the dark and put him away.

    DH said Rory had probably forgotten about Odie because it had been three months, and let's face it, Rory is NOT the sharpest crayon in the ole 64 pack. But if he forgot, he remembered immediately.

    So here's the first video, not a lot of Odie, which the thread is about, but if you watch, about 40 seconds in Rory realizes who just showed up and does a happy Irish jig for a split second before running out. Of course it's right when I get all crappy with the video because I'm dealing with the gate, buuuuut... And you see my mare being her normal hateful self towards Rory.

    And here's Rory snuffling on his Odie and you can see that he is so happy to have his bestie back.

    And some pictures

    Yep, this rig for the 31'' wonder.
    Rory loving his buddy
    And Odie saying, "who couldn't love this face??"

    So his stall is bedded and he has water and hay and dinner, and he's home. I'm going to go out tomorrow and sneak him out of the paddock (or try to) and let him wander around the farm a little tomorrow and eat lots of treats. He was a little stressed about the trailer ride, which he doesn't like when he's 100 percent, so grass and movement are all excellent ideas .

    Well, depression has officially been lifted, and we have a happy Evil Burrito once again. He perhaps moved around too much today, I did not expect him to chase Rory and I to the arena. And he hung out there until we went back and followed us back to the barn.

    My kid said you could have put Odie in the truck, saving yourself the trailer...

    Glad to hear he's home!

    My truck has a canopy and spray in liner, and I keep saying we should build a ramp and let Odie ride up there .

    I know you're all surprised to read that this is where I found Rory when I showed up, and right back where he went after he was turned back out. Those two...my goodness. DH worked on what I've dubbed the Tent de Burro yesterday, adding a center pole to keep water from pooling.

    And while I had been concerned that Odie would be stressed out by tarp noises, this is obviously not the case . So DH had to work on that as well.

    I turned him loose to wander and graze, and then caught Rory to brush him, and lo and behold, apparently Odie wanted to come in with us and chill. He was happier out of the barn at the other facility if horses were in the crossties, so I guess he missed his buddy too.

    And he did NOT want to get put away when I was on my way back from the arena to the barn. DH is such a party pooper . DH had to drag him all the way in, and then drag him into the Tent de Burro. Poor Burrito.
