Nester is approximately 40 years old. He loves people but especially children. My Grandsons learned how to balance on a horse by walking around our property on him when they were very young. He loves red delicious apples and carrots but because of his age and being a donkey, we have to limit them. But I guess at 40 he proves an apple a day keeps the Vet away.
He is so nosy; investigating and displacing anything new or different around the barn. Donkeys can’t give hugs per say, so each evening he buries his head underneath my arm and waits for me to hug him back and he will stand there forever. He is my little Buddy and I can’t even imagine an evening without a Nester Hug.
