Amos, the donkey, and Francis and Claire, the two peacocks, all came from the same place; a Hobby Farm. When the owner died, his family did not want any of the animals. We do not know what happened to the other animals. We hope they too found safe and happy forever homes. When Amos was young he was forced to give children rides on his back and now has a sway-back for life. Amos has the most beautiful and tender eyes. He loves to give precious neck hugs and have his butt rubbed.
