"Buttercup"

 

Every stable needs a guard dog.

It's an interesting story about how we got Buttercup. David was at the sale barn here in Gainesville one day looking to buy some cows, when a little old man leads in his little miniature donkey. The donkey had obviously founered, and the bidding started at $50. Nobody would give $50, so the auctioneer dropped it to $25, and then, $15, and finally $5... nobody would even give this old man $5 for his little donkey. Keep in mind that it costs at least $15 to sell an animal at the sale barn. Finally David offered him $15 for his donkey, and we've had him ever since.

He's a great guard donkey, but we've yet to be able to touch more than the tip of his nose when we catch him off guard with a bucket of food.
