He came with the name Jake, but we are trying to limit the number of people names that animals are called to reserve some names for future grand-children; so we are going to try and transition it to Chewy. So for now, he is Chewy-Jake. (This is a proven method at our house, as we have done it for five African adoptees...)
Chewy-Jake is six, just like Selah and Elijah.
This is a whole new frontier for us - donkeys involve messy poop, hoof care and I think he may need a dental check-up from the glimpse I got feeding him a carrot.
I really just think the animals make for fun childhood memories and a good lesson in responsibility.
Selah is a huge animal lover; so nice compared to the hysterical screaming that she did the first few months in America whenever she even laid eyes on any animal!

Chewy-Jake and the goats have about a week to get accustomed to each other before Leia has her baby (or hopefully babies).
