Otie is a black miniature donkey who came from the exotic animal sale in Kalona. Otie was born during a pretty cold January and the tips of his ears got frostbite. That is why he only has stubs for ears. Donkey Otie wears his distinctive look well, and is shy and very sweet, one of the iconic mascots of Mary’s Farm Sanctuary. His name is a play on the classic Spanish novel Don Quixote which is pronounced exactly the same!
