Field of Dreams is saddened to announce the passing of our beloved donkey Orlando. At 50 years young, Orlando peacefully crossed the rainbow bridge this morning surrounded by many of his FOD family who loved and cared for him.
Orlando will always be remembered for his strong will, his love of attention, and the sound of his donkey brays filling the barn when his meals didn't arrive quickly enough. During his 9 years with FOD, Orlando was a companion to other rescued equines, a teacher to new volunteers, and an ambassador for our organization. Above all, he was a friend to all who met him.
We will deeply miss this soulful donkey and his shuffle down the barn aisle. But we smile knowing he was deeply loved and is now at peace enjoying the company of our other beloved rescues that have gone before him.
