After what seems like years of effort, My sister's two donkeys, Big Daddy Freddy and Glenna, have their first baby, as yet unnamed. Now, if anyone can only tell us what donkeys are good for, we'll be all set. My sister Lynne (and the entire menagerie) live on a 27 acre farm in Sulphur, Kentucky.

Flash Update: Current suggested name is "Hotie", as in Donkey-Hotie, get it??
Even newer Flash Update: Current working name is Tuchas Aureleus - cute, but I liked "Hotie" better.

Well, it's spring of 2002 and time has passed. Changes abound amongst the longeared ones in Sulphur. Tuchas has grown, and Freddy has passed away, but not before putting Glenna in the family way again. Also, Lynne has adopted an abandoned, and badly foundered, miniature donkey, now christened "Paco." It is unclear if Paco will survive, but he apparently doesn't know that.

7 November 2002- Glenna passed away this morning, after fighting complications in birthing. The colt also did not survive. My prayers are with my sister in Sulfur, and with all the critters on the farm. Tuchas and Paco will have to harass the horses by themselves.
