"Bring me the colt of a donkey," was the Master's request.
A young donkey was brought to Jesus to carry Him into Jerusalem.
A week later Jesus was ordered to be crucified.
The little donkey so loved the Lord that he wanted to help Him carry the cross.
But, alas, he was pushed away.
The sad little donkey waited to say goodbye until nearly all had left.
As he turned to leave, the shadow of the cross fell upon the back and shoulders of the little donkey.
And there it has remained, a tribute to the loyalty and love of the humblest of God's creatures.

There's nothing like a miniature donkey...
they make GREAT pets and can do anything a big (or mini) horse can do, including learn to pull a cart, play at obstacles, tricks, even ride (for small enough children); and they are GREAT therapy as well, as those long ears can hold all your secrets, cares, troubles, worries or dreams...
Visitors are always welcome, but it's most fun to come when there are new foals!
