Featured Video: Breakfast is Served…by a Donkey


It’s Monday, and that alone is reason enough to take a break and enjoy some animal silliness.

In this video, from Annabelle’s Equestrian, a stable and riding school in Suffolk, England, Dave the Donkey is helping one of his barnmates get every last bit of his meal. It looks like Dave could easily walk off with that grain dish and enjoy the spoils on his own, but he doesn’t. Sharing is caring, and Dave knows that.
