- John and Georgann Syphard - August 2019 - July 2021
Murfee is a standard Donkey who was born right here at the farm on August 9, 2016. He arrived in utero without our even knowing he was in there when his mother Mabel came to retire here at age 30 in January 2016. Little did we know she’d be pregnant at that age but what a surprise we had when in April we noticed some very strange movements coming from her belly. Little Murfee was quite active inside there apparently running laps around inside, impatiently awaiting the day he could run free. It took until August when out he came. It took him only minutes to spring to his feet and greet his mom and human friends with great enthusiasm. As if he was saying, “I’m FINALLY here!” We look forward to a lot of years together. He was born during our 25th Anniversary year and ushers in the next generation.
“I have so much to do. I’m so excited to be here. Wait until you get to see what I’m up to!”
