Reese Witherspoon's Pet Donkeys Tick Off Neighbors
Don't be an ass!
Reese Witherspoon's Ojai, Calif. neighbors are not happy about the noise level of her donkeys, Honky and Tonky. They hee-haw at such a high-volume that "they're driving us crazy!" a source told Us Weekly.
"It's so bad that a few residents have sent her a letter," a local added. But the 35-year-old actress' neighbors don't want her to leave, just quiet down her donkeys! "She's beloved here," a neighbor said. "I'm not even sure she knows what's going on."
In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in December, Witherspoon opened up about her farm full of animals. "This year we got donkeys. They're really cute," she gushed. "They're actually miniature donkeys… They're docile and sweet."
"I [also] have two pigs, and I have three goats and I have 20 chickens and of course I have three dogs. And I have one horse. It's hanging out with the donkey, it's sweet," she added.
Witherspoon makes sure her son Deacon, 7, and daughter Ava, 11, learn some responsibility through taking care of the family pets. "It's so good for the kids to learn about animals and kindness and compassion," she said. "I make them clean the stalls."
