Adopt a burro!
You’ve probably read in social media about the wild horse and burro programs. The whole idea of rounding up burros and horses from the wild has been very controversial. I can’t stop it from happening but what I can do is support these animals by adopting. Heaven knows what trauma these animals go through in their capture. Once captured, they deserve a life filled with love and care. That’s exactly what I intend to shower my new burro with!
She came to the ranch via a burro rescue ranch who works with the Bureau of Land Management so she had a few months of handling before we went to pick her up. It was a struggle to get her into the trailer and once she made it to the ranch, she seemed exhausted and confused. Thanks to the skillful handling of Victoria and Andres, our ranch wranglers, our new baby quickly settled in and as you will see in the video she enjoyed a nice naptime after arriving.
