The Donkeys are Coming, The Donkeys are coming

Justice and Jeremino are coming at the end of August from the Holy Annunciation Monastery of the Discalced Carmelite Nuns in Sugarloaf, PA.

We bought our lovely Jersey heifer from them, Stella
back in September 2009.

They wanted to make a gift of the donkeys to us to be sure they have a loving, forever home, and the nuns will be bringing them to us at the end of August.

I know how hard it is to place beloved animals into kind and caring homes!
I am happy to provide these cute guys with a good home.



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
