Lonely Donkey Falls In Love With New Buddy: Watch Their Friendship Blossom.

These two donkeys became best friends on a farm.

One donkey seemed inconsolable when his brother passed away — that is, until he was introduced to his new best friend! An adorable video on Instagram shows how Freedom Farmhouse helped the animal recover from his loss. First, they placed another donkey in the field next door. When the two critters hit it off immediately, farmers moved them into the same area. They’ve been inseparable ever since!


Many commenters were concerned when they noticed that the two donkey best friends were separated by a fence. However, their worries were cleared up as the video explained that the new resident needed time to get situated! Later footage shows the animals happily frolicking together and rolling around in the grass.
