Meet Our Residents Donkeys Brownie

Brownie, shortly after arriving at Peaceful Fields in July 2014.

Our sweet Brownie was found abandoned in a field with horses. We were able to surmise from his early behavior that his previous owners would electrocute him to prevent him from drinking water. It often takes Brownie two or three passes by the water trough before he feels comfortable to drink, and is easily spooked by sudden movement or sounds.

He has made immense emotional growth since joining Peaceful Fields in July 2014. He and Elvis the horse have become best friends, often eating and playing together, and Brownie doesn’t shy away from new people as often as he used to.

While he’s still a bit timid and and can get overwhelmed around groups of people due to his past experiences, he loves to be hand-fed treats and have the insides of his ears scratched. We affectionately call him Brownie Batter when he gets ear scratchies, as his lower lip droops and his whole face relaxes!
