Steve Anderson brushes Ernest, the Littleton Museum’s most recent addition, on Sunday while the museum’s resident mule, Kate, watches. Ernest joined Kate a month ago after being rescued from a neglectful owner.
Down-and-out donkey back in the saddle

Ernest the donkey’s journey to his new home in Littleton was long and difficult.

The 6-year-old donkey is the newest resident of the Littleton Museum’s 1860s working farmhouse. He joins another museum resident, Kate the mule, and will eventually be integrated into the farm’s daily activities, said Suellen Winstead, the museum’s education and interpretation coordinator.
