HILLTOP RANCH The owner of this fine ranch came in and told me a story about his surprise package. One morning he saw what he thought was some trash in the pasture and went over to take a closer look. The trash looked like it was moving....and sure enough it was. It was a baby donkey. He looked around and said-Who did this? He did not even know any of his donkeys were pregnant. The baby donkey is pictured in the gate now.
