Abigail, the Pet of the Day
Name: Abigail
Age: One and half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Miniature Donkey
Home: Clarksville, Maryland, USA
   This is Abigail, the Miniature Donkey. Abigail was a gift for my daughter Sara from her grandmother for her birthday last year. She and her brother Happy are the cutest pair! A lot of people may not be familiar with donkeys, but they are not like most people think of them. Abigail is so friendly and every time anyone goes in the field she has to get some attention. In fact, they are both very docile and loving. I think that a lot of credit for Abigail being so friendly has to do with the breeder where we got her and her brother, Yonder Farm in Adamstown, MD. The owners, Roberta and Mac, love these animals so much from the time they are born that they are like big dogs.

    My daughter can walks Abigail and Happy on a lead and sometimes, if they are willing, they will jump over a small jump for her. Anyone looking for a sweet pet like this, they are wonderful farm pet and great with kids. My daughter Sara will go out and sit with Abigail and Happy and play with them sometimes for hours.
