- Howard and Janice LaFave - January 2023 - December 2023
Libby is a mini-donkey mare estimated to have been born in 2014. She came to the farm in spring of 2018 with six other mini-donkeys all of whom were in an extreme neglect case. All of them arrived emaciated and with severely overgrown and deformed feet. Libby has some of the worst feet of all of them. She is also quite shy and at first was very afraid of even letting us touch her. But as Libby is realizing she is safe now, she is becoming less shy and even has been standing closer to us to be petted. In fact, she is really starting to like the idea. We will continue to take things very slow and let Libby let us know when she is ready to move further. Each day we see her make steps and we are getting to know her more and more as time goes on. We look forward to watching her blossom.
“I’m glad to be with all of my donkey friends. It gives me comfort to be in my group and to know we all are finding safety together. Not all of my friends survived and that made me very sad. But I look forward to know what different things I can now find in life. I think something really good is happening here.”
