There are various situations to consider before adopting a life long friend. It can happen to the best of us. You see a gorgeous Labrador mix whose tail seems to be wagging just for you or maybe it is the fluffy pony begging for treats at the gate. You take one look, and the next thing you know, you're wandering down the aisles at the local farm supply store.
If you're like most of us, falling in love with a critter is easy. And no wonder! Adding a horse or donkey to your pasture or sharing your home with a friend can be one of life's greatest joys. Dogs, cats, and other pets give us unconditional loyalty and acceptance, provide constant companionship, and even help relieve stress after a hard day's work.
