F. Huntington ranch near Stonewall. chances are one of the Huntington kids will rouse up in bed and start wondering what’s troubling Dinah Shore. Patricia Munsel. Librace or Frank Sinatra. The reason? The Huntingtons have nine small but full-voiced Mexican burros, and the three Huntington children recently named four of them after the above-mentioned I a mons singers. “The kids got the idea from hearing the burros braying, Mrs. Huntington said. The nine sturdy little mountain burros from old Mexico are in a pasture on th Huntington ranch. The three Huntington youngsters, Susan. Linda and John, have a lively time with them. So far. none of the jennies named after famous feminine singers have produced offspring, but the pride and joy of the kids at this time is a new colt from a mother donkey called ‘ Honeypot.” The current addition to the burro family is a little black donkey that literally takes the run of the place. He dashes hither and yon with a wild abandon, much to the concern of his anxious mother. Honeypot has to ge* her grazing done during infrequent periods when the tiny black jack is resting. Otherwise, due to the encroachment of dogs around her ofispring. Honeypot has to be constantly alert.
