Introducing Samson...

He wasn't sure about the whole trailer thing but with the help of my buddy and some patience we got him in. Loaded and ready to roll into his new life with us at the ranch. Oh my goodness he is a sweet guy!
The music man is such a fabulous "welcome committee". He greeted him with hugs, kisses and letting him know we're happy he's here.
 I didn't want to overwhelm him on his first day here but his legs needed tending too so he received his first bath and socks of his own. I will be getting him different ones for his healing time but for now these will work to keep his wounds clean.
He's settling really quickly too, I think he knows he's in a good place and is enjoying himself. He has met everyone over the fence and will join them after his quarantine time.

He is 6ish years old and the same size and Ms. Punkin Pie but thicker and much stronger, in fact he is super strong. I wanted to go with a biblical name for him as he has a large cross over his body (known as a Jerusalem Donkey) and his forelock is really long...So we have chosen Samson as his name, fitting isn't it?

Welcome home Samson... Sam... Sammie Pie..We are so happy you are here!
