Joker came to us in the fall of 2022 with Jill. I met him way back in 2014 at the Black River Farm. You can read about that encounter here. I will always think of it as a day that my fate changed – and Joker’s! I made a great friend that day in Elsie Lafreniere. AND a future friend in Joker.

Joker is a cuddly, happy-go-lucky little guy. I love that if I am in the ‘other’ paddock for too long Joker will come up over the hillside to check on me. He won’t come all the way down because he also takes his job of looking out for Rosie and Jill very seriously.

A perfect day for Joker includes a long stretch of brushing or scratching – preferably by a human! I’m so glad Elsie has trusted me with Joker (and Jill). They are the friendliest, cuddliest, most curious donkeys I’ve known yet. Joker will be 21 this year on August 24th. (Born in 2002) I hope we get to grow old together. xoxo
