Name: Joe Birthday: 07/14/1999″] History: Hello my name is Joe. If I was asked what I liked about being at the ranch I would have to say the food. I get to be out on the grass most of the time. In the morning and at night they give me grain. I also like being here because of the kids. The kids bring me treats like apples, carrots, candy and cookies. I really like the cookies, for a cookie I will do tricks like shake hands and bow. Hum what is my story? Well I don’t really know where I was born because no one ever filed papers on me that we can find. So I don’t know who my parents are or anything. I kind of remember my mom but I was pretty small when she left and I never met my dad. I was sold at an auction and went to live with this really nice family for awhile who taught me how to carry a rider without falling down. I made lots of friends there but they soon sent me to this ranch where Samson and I became brothers. Well he is my big brother because he is older lots older. We have been together now for about 5 years and go on long walks together in the woods. He has taken me to the Smokey Mountains where I got to chase a bear. We have also been to Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan and other places in Tennessee along with almost every trail in Indiana. The ranch is my home and the people here are my family now they tell me that I can stay as long as I want. I am going to stay because I know they love me. Even though I am not perfect they make me feel good about myself. They call me Little Joe because I do some crazy things and act like a little kid sometimes but that’s because I get bored just eating grass all the time and want to play. So come out and Play with me and we will have some fun. Don’t worry about treats because they have those here at the ranch.
The cost per month to feed and care for me is $100.00. This does not include any vet care. Any and all donations are much appreciated.
