Peabody Gets Adopted


Volunteer animal trainers from around the globe team up to write child’s book about a baby burro.

Mustang Camp releases new book, Peabody Gets Adopted.

Love for donkeys inspired an illustrator from France (Aline Grindatto), a photographer from England (Jasna Furlan), and writers in New York City (Veronica Moore) and northern New Mexico (Patricia Irick and Christine Ng) to join forces to produce a book about animal adoption. They originally met while training wild mustangs and burros for the adoption program at Mustang Camp.

Largo Canyon, New Mexico, USA and March 7, 2018

Mustang Camp is a non-profit organization that helps formerly wild animals transition to a life with people. It is operated by volunteers and students, placing 40 to 70 animals a year into private ownership. It works with the Bureau of Land Management, the US Forest Service, and rescue organizations. It is one of the 11 licensed equine rescues in New Mexico and directed by Dr. Patricia Irick, Ph.D.

“We all were enamored with the baby burros, so the story almost told itself,” said Irick, who also has a independent publishing website “We all wanted to contribute to the production and the miracle of the internet allowed us to complete the project despite the distance between everyone. It’s a classic tale of growing up and finding your place in the world, through the eyes of Peabody, a baby donkey born at Mustang Camp.

It’s a simple story. A wild but very strict mother, a zebra, and the best playmate ever help anxious little Peabody find his way to a forever home. This heart-warming story will help young readers understand animal adoption. Photos of the actual animals in the story add to the beautiful watercolor illustrations that were started in New Mexico but finished in Paris, France.

Peabody Gets Adopted is available on or from Mustang Camp. Support equine rescue and encourage the young people in your life to have empathy for animals by giving them this endearing book.
