This week-end is the 3rd annual burro race in Superior. Well, I guess it isn't really the 3rd annual, covid last year cancelled the race, but it will be their 3rd race. Four years ago they held the 1st burro race in Arizona in over 30 years. It was a great success and hopefully will grow every year.
If you are in the area by all means this is going to be a lot of fun. If you've never seen a burro race or even if you have, I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday.
Seven of our donkeys will be running in the race and we will have a table set up with t-shirts and stuffed donkeys available. There will also be an auction for one of Gretchen Klett's plaques she has graciously donated to Forever Home to be silent auctioned off at our booth in Superior this week-end. Highest bidder will get the plaque ..........!!!! Our donated plaque is on the right, and the plaque on the left will be donated to Lucky A Ranch, a non-profit rescue SE of us in McNeal, Az for them to auction. Gretchen is very involved with donkeys and shares her talent with rescues. She has a business called One Herd Art, that shows how talented she is using different mediums.
If you go to Superior Saturday, by all means come by our booth and say "HI" and maybe bid on this lovely plaque.
Big Gus is doing well after his trip to the equine clinic in Gilbert, His legs are staying dry, Suzanne has been washing them every morning with chlorhexidine and he is getting liquid antibiotics twice a day and prednisone for the next 3 weeks. I guess sometimes with this type of bacterial infection they don't get over it and have to be on medication forever. With him that isn't something to look forward to. He's actually done pretty good, but he's starting to question what we are giving him. When he turns down peppermints you know he is suspicious.....!! LOL
