Joey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Joey
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Donkey
Home: La Porte, Indiana, USA
   Hi, this is Joey. I rescued him from a petting barn at our local fair. He was eight months old and pretty pathetic looking, lots of sores from fly bites and quite thin. I thought he was a miniature donkey but later found out he is standard size. I needed a companion for my horse, and thought Joey needed some TLC. His best friend is Hoss, a 28-year-old Tennessee Walker. Three years later and they are inseparable. This picture is Joey hee-hawing because Hoss is being ridden out of the pasture away from him! It is true, opposites do attract!
