Daisy’s First Day October 4, 2022October 4, 2022 / tgutting / Leave a comment First days are always exciting, aren’t they? And a little scary too! Daisy’s first day at Breezy Acres was a busy one.First: her feet. Daisy had some ouchies on her hooves making it hard to walk right. She didn’t want to run and play because her feet hurt.So Pastor Darrick carefully cleaned them up and trimmed them. You know those things you have to do to stay healthy, like getting a shot? Maybe you don’t want to. Maybe it doesn’t feel good. But it makes you better!Daisy had to practice walking around with a halter. She didn’t like that either. Do you like to learn new things?Then Auna gave her a bath.She really didn’t like that! Donkeys are desert animals. They like to stay dry. Daisy is a Jerusalem donkey. She has a cross on her back. People like to think that when a donkey carried Jesus into Jerusalem, God marked them with a cross.Our Daisy probably won’t be carrying anybody, but she does have a job to do. Donkeys are really good shepherds–kind of like baby sitters. They are smart! They keep an eye on everything and know when something is bad, like a coyote. They are brave and strong too. They will chase away bad characters.Our horses Pedro and Seven were not used to being out in the country by themselves. So Daisy can teach them to not be afraid of the birds, to check for snakes, and to not get hurt. Can you find little Daisy in the picture?We help her and she helps us! Isn’t that cool how God gives us each other to help out?“Carry each other’s burdens…” Galatians 6:2aThe End! Subscribe to this blog so you never miss a Breezy Acres story!
