Well we are 2 months from starting this venture a year ago, it has been tiresome dealing with all the paperwork involved but definitely worth it. I have been in contact with V.A. center in Battle Creek and they are aware we are here to offer our services at no charge to veterans. We have received some great sponsors and we are greatly appreciative, with out the help of sponsors and individual donations we would not be able to continue. The miniature donkeys are doing amazing, they are so loving and want all the attention you will give them.  Since they had their first pedicure they love to run in the pasture.  Grant has been a great addition to us we are greatful that the Applemans donated him to us. Grant is going for "Horse" training towards end of July, yes Horse training he thinks he is a pet and not a horse. He did amazing when we put a saddle on him he did not flinch or try to run away. He lets me lift all 4 hooves he is a loving horse.  he loves the water. I was filling his big water trough and he wanted to get wet he stood there turning in circles wanting me to spray him down. he even tried getting into the 300 gallon water trough, so we are going to get him one of those low sided long inflatable pools he can play in.
