Golden Yellow for Butler’s Nose

Golden Yellow for Butler’s Nose

- by Cynthia McFarland

Butler is a 19-year-old donkey, who came off the range as a wild burro at some point early in his life. He had apparently passed through a number of hands before I rescued him from a neglect situation in June, 2007. He definitely has found his forever home with me and I’ve been amazed at his intelligence, kindness and sense of humor.
