Richardsii's Ruby Tuesday
Registered Name>> Richardsii's Ruby Tuesday
Barn Name>> Roo
Age>> 9 years
Breed>> Miniature Donkey
Breed Registry>> NMDA
Coat Colour>> Brown
Stable Colour>> Turquoise
Personality>> Roo is the bolder of the pair. She loves to cause trouble wherever possible, in a mischievous type of way. She knows the lines, and is very smart about what she can and can't get away with. She has a weak spot for children, however - They can do everything to her, from braiding her long hair to pulling on her ears, without any reaction from the patient jennet.
Caution Around>> Ice cream (she'll try to steal it)
Basic History>> Roo and Sugar were born to a breeder who specialized in wooly donkeys. After Gwen's great dane passed away, she chose not to get another one, despite missing the companionship, due to how much time she spent at the barn. However, about that time, she learned about miniature donkeys from a trainer who came through the facility, and decided to look into it. Of course, that ended with her leaving with two weanlings.
Those two weanlings became her companions. They had their transportation in the back of her van, they had toys and space in her office, and had learned to follow her around the barn without leads and without being (too) disruptive to operations. So of course, when she came to Blue Ridge, there was no question that they would come alone. Along the way, she picked up therapy certifications for the pair, although there aren't many opportunities in Blue Ridge.
