MORE ON RACHEL ANNE RIDGE:

Adopting a stray donkey was about the last thing Rachel imagined she’d ever do. She remembers seeing some donkeys that were kept as pets, and wondering, “what’s the point?” After all, what did one DO with a donkey, anyway?

Rachel found out the answer when a shabby, homeless donkey showed up on her doorstep – at a most inopportune moment. Unable to find a home for him, Rachel and her family took him in…and their lives were never the same.
