Pics from the Field: A Boy and His Donkey
November 21, 2011
Six year Cy Magee was so worried about whether his donkey, Lady, was going to have hay for the long Wyoming winter, he came up with the money to feed her. So the kindergartner plopped himself down in his mother’s marigold garden and started collecting seeds. Every day, Cy would count out the seeds by hand. 100 seeds went into each plastic bag. His plan? To sell each bag for a dollar at the local furniture store. Though his heart is as big as the Western sky, Cy was born with CHD (congenital heart disease) and, due to this, ended up with a pacemaker. What happened with Cy and his seeds will make you smile this holiday season.
