From Felix: “Once upon a time, my friend Leo and I were among the first donkeys to live here on this farm. We had the honor to be with the very first donkey on the farm, Amber Donkey. Amber was a very old wise woman. The humans say she lived to be 50 years old. We called her the grandmother donkey and she called us the two wise guys. But she liked us really. She taught us how to bray loudly and we carry on that tradition to this day. She inspired our songs. Now the farm has many donkeys. While we haven’t actually met the others as we are on a separate part of the farm from them, we all call out to one another. We now have a donkey choir! Amber would be so proud. I am grateful to carry on her legacy. Legacies are important. When our friends are no longer physically here on the farm, we can keep their messages and love alive within our own hearts. Leo and I are Amber’s legacy. I am grateful and honored to be able to say that we were her wise guys. Let’s all hold those we love and who are no longer with us in our hearts and let them know their legacies are alive.”
Each day through December 31, as has been our annual tradition now for many years, we will share with you a message from one of the animals of Spring Farm CARES. We hope this will provide you with a bit of inspiration for your day.
