The big news out of New Mexico this weekend is that Morning Bray Farm adopted a new donkey.
Here is the backstory, in case you missed it.
Harriet made the trip from Las Vegas, Nevada, to Albuquerque yesterday,
and I was there to help welcome her to her new home.
It was around 5 p.m. and Don was on the phone with Teri, the volunteer from L.E.A.N. (Local Equine Assistance Network)
who was hauling Harriet, talking her through the maze of Albuquerque.
Finally, the headlights appeared at the end of the road. Justina jumped for joy.
It might be time to get an extension for the Morning Bray Farm sign.
Harriet: Why are all those boys over there staring at me?
We'll never know for certain, but it's possible that Harriet has never been around other donkeys.
She and Ellsworth have the same coloring and are about the same size,
though Harriet wins in the ear-length category.
She settled into her own pen while Gracie and the boys finished their dinner next door.
Once Harriet rests up from her long journey, she'll join the rest of the herd.
Harriet: Is this heaven?
Me: It's the closest thing to it you'll find here on earth.
If this picture had a soundtrack, you would hear Buck and Ellsworth whistling.
Harriet is the talk of the town.
