Penny is Grandpa’s feisty and lovable baby donkey. Claire got to name her from Thailand and was so excited to meet her. They hit it off and Claire helped Grandpa with some training (goals: walk on a leash, stop and go on command) with mixed success. At times it looked like Claire was leading Penny, at times vice-versa. And when Penny got obstinate, it was pretty funny to see her plant her feet and refuse to budge, or the opposite- start kicking up her heels like crazy. Claire said, “She’s stubborn but I love her. ” 🙂
She loves strawberries from the garden (did you notice her strawberry lips in the first pic?).
