The Donkey Paddock
Throughout the years, Little River has hosted many various animals including guinea pigs, rats, goldfish, chickens, sheep, goats, cows, and horses. Little River is the new home donkeys Samantha, Beanie and August! These three miniature donkeys were donated to the school by our neighbor Isis Melhado. August was born the first week in August 2013 (hence the name), and Beanie is his mother. Samantha is expecting a foal this spring. Our students are working on teaching August “ground manners,” to be respectful; teaching the younger students equine safety and animal ownership responsibilities. Also returning to the Youngers’ classroom this year is goldfish, Hamilton Nigel Goldie III.
