If you ever read my Farm and Fru Fru blog, you will remember several years ago, we got a miniature donkey, Jubel. A quirky little fellow, he was NOT the friendly timid creature
we expected. He did not get all warm and fuzzy when you petted his head
and although he loved cookies, he snatched them from your hand without so much as a
thank you. But we loved him anyway. My own children rarely thank me for
cookies so I didn't hold that against him.
Jubel was in a nice little lot, but was not happy being alone. I knew this because he paced the perimeter of the fence and looked longingly at the cows in the larger pasture. We got him a pet. When Sweetheart the little Jersey come to live with him, Jubel treated him like a bratty little brother. He whacked at him, butted him, bit him, shoved him away from his food and
generally treated him badly. Lee decided to put Jube in with the big cows. I was afraid the much larger cows would butt his little self to kingdom come, but, oh no.
Jubel held his own. He shoved, bit, chased and hee-hawed his way through the pasture like
the "A**" he was. Until he began to take on the newborn calves.
That's when Lee got tough. He refused to let Jubel stir up his little "cash cows" and
announced Jubel had to go. Lee had taken all he could take. And so he began to search for
a new home for Jubel. Earlier this summer Jubel moved to his new home.
While I miss him terribly and hate looking over the fence not seeing him standing there
waiting (impatiently) for his cookies, he now lives with my friend and his new home comes with several minis he can boss around. And horses. And llamas, a potbellied pig, ducks, goats, sheep and more. He also has his own personal pal..."Lil Darryl," another mini.
I know he's happy, and that's a good thing, but it's a change.
I don't like change much.
And I don't like losing my A**.
