In June 2013, I found my first miniature donkey; a gelding named Gunston at Old Wives Lake, Saskatchewan. When I first brought him home I was very protective of him and kept him separated from the horses, but he wanted to be with them so I let him go out into the pasture with the three horses. Axle really took to Gunston and they became buddies.
One night, our beloved horses and donkey got out of the pasture. Our horse Mac was hit by a speeding truck and killed and the other three animals went missing. Eventually we found them and brought them back home, Tosh was injured, Axle and Gunston were alright. We were devastated!
We were slowly adjusting to the loss of our horse when one week to the day, Gunston was tragically killed in a freak accident on our ranch.
Missing them today! Love you, Mac and Gunston.
