SATURDAY CRITTERS - The Story of a Depressed Goat and a Donkey

Sometime ago a friend of mine sent me a video that was on Youtube and I thought I would like to share it with you.  Fortunately I had put this into draft for a rainy day and although the weather is lovely where I am for my few days away, I am able now to post it for you.

The animal welfare group Animal Place had not anticipated how deep a bond Mr. G had with Jellybean. When they realized why Mr. G was so depressed, they arranged to bring Jellybean to him.  What happens next is amazing!

The video can be accessed at


If there is a black space below, click it and the video will appear.



Never underestimate how animals feel.  It speaks so loudly of the power of depression - and the power of friendship. I hope you found this as touching as I did.  

I am linking this post with SATURDAYS CRITTERS. 

Thanks for visiting.  

Many thanks for leaving comments on any of my posts.

  1. Tears here. I love that they realised what the problem was - and that the other sanctuary was prepared to give Jellybean up.

  3. Nature is such a wonderful thing, and watching things like this make me appreciate it a lot more. A lovely story and that goat looked much happier for seeing his mate again.
