Druplet, a young donkey named after a juice bump on a raspberry, lived on a raspberry farm and his wish was to one day be as special as the prize horses in a nearby pasture.

As Christmas rolled around Druplet went on an adventure that saw him standing next to a baby in a manger and a young girl in funny cloths. On returning to the farm Druplet inquired what this was all about, this is when the wise barn cat shared the story of Christmas.

Druplet now felt special.

She resides in the Upstate of South Carolina with her loving husband, sons, a dog and two cats.
