Wild Burros: Donkeys Get Adopted in Utah! :)

During the moments when I'm not knitting, I can usually be found in the burro pasture behind our house! 

Today my husband Nicholas and I are so happy to announce that our sweet wild burro, Chocolate Bear, officially belongs to us now! 
Chocolate Bear's Title
Hopefully his buddy Barnabas' title will be coming in the mail any day, as well.  :) 

The BLM will only allow wild horse or wild burro adopters to apply for titles after a year, to prove that we will care for them long term.

As with any pets, these two make us laugh with their silly antics, melt our hearts with their affection and create an unbelievable amount of mess for us to clean up, ha ha!

We feel very lucky to share our lives with these two fellas and are grateful that they've decided to trust us and befriend us!

Now they love to meet new people, including kids.  Here they are reaching out to receive a gift of cherry tomatoes from our friend Jess.

Would you like to see more of our inseparable pair of formerly wild donkeys?

Most of the videos that I've posted on facebook are of these two:

And here's a link to one of my FAVORITE pics, of Chocolate Bear getting a kiss from Nicholas:

Thanks for sharing this milestone moment with us!  Burros can live for 35 years or longer and these guys are only three years old, so we will enjoy their companionship for a long time. :)

Happy to say that we received Barnabas' title just a few days later so both of the burro boys are ours for keeps! :)
