Donkey Victory

This past week, a few well known donkey lovin' bloggers have rallied an army to stop the donkey roping competition scheduled for this weekend in Van Horn, Texas.   And yesterday, the Chamber of Commerce stepped up and did the right thing by cancelling the event.   There are several blogging pages that are celebrating today.   Everyone should be celebrating because 40 sweet donkeys will now be safe from abuse.   We are hoping arrangements will be made by the promoter to release his donkeys to Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue.   Hooray!!!


This link is to 7MSN Ranch.   It provides more background if you're interested.   I've been following her blog for more than two years and it also provides daily amusement along with great photos.


Again, I say Hooray!!!
