Ringo will be moving in a few days. It's so difficult emotionally even though I know it's best. He'll have a whole new chance and hopefully get to learn new things and do some fun stuff like packing and playing with grandchildren!
But how I will miss his deep "basso profundo" braying - the whole neighbourhood will notice the silence!

I will miss seeing him pick up his favorite toy- a hose from a shop vac - and twirl it around. I will miss seeing him gallop up to me to get his hay when I feed out in the field.
I'll miss his soft muzzle placed gently under the palm of my hand. Oh dear ... I guess I could easily make a list of things I WON'T miss too!
Next week, I will pick up a new jennet named Siog (She-Oh-g) which means young fairy in Gaelic!
