Straight from the Rescues' Mouths

Hello Everyone! I’m Samson a 7-year-old miniature donkey. I first came to the rescue when I was only 2 years old, from a very loving home. My previous home gave me the name goat killing donkey. I might have had a problem with goats. They had lots of goats they expected me to protect from coyotes and instead I was more of a problem. In my defense I was just trying to play with the goats.

Anyways my home is Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County and I LOVE it here! I have decided to make a weekly news updates about the happenings here at Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County. I am very excited about this and have been talking with all my rescue pals about all the great names everyone came up with. It was a very hard choice because there was SO many great ideas but after a lot of thought I picked Straight from the Rescues’ Mouths. I picked this because I have so many rescue friends that want to help co-host with me.
Now to the fun News update for the week.
