Hi, Ellen. Sounds like Buford was lucky to have found you—both for the care that you gave him while he was with you and that you cared enough to find him a good home.
Jennifer thanks we enjoyed having Buford for a year but had to give him away. We couldn't get his hooves trimmed or taken care of. We tried but it is lots harder then it looks to trim a donkey hooves. We got him from a flea market and gave him to a farmer when we sold the goats. He bought the four goats and we gave him Buford because he had a farm and could take better care of him then I could. We found him at a flea market in a pony ride stall, very small stall and the sign read donkey for sale will deliver for $100.00. We felt sorry for him and not knowing a thing about donkeys we bought him, he was very gentle until you try and put a rope on him. This is when I found out how strong donkeys are, he was a good pasture guard for the goats. Kept the predators out of the pasture, even killed a skunk that tried to eat his feed. Every time I look in the pasture I miss him but know he is in a better place and being taken care of. That picture was the first day he came to us, he is nine years old this year I miss the goats to but really can't take care of them any more.
What a handsome gent that Buford is! Thanks, Ellen, for sharing these photos!
