It seems to be a growing fad these days for celebrities to be splurging on more exotic or just plain unusual pets this year.
While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Reese Witherspoon unveiled her newest pets she added to her collection of two pigs, three goats, twenty chickens, three dogs, and one horse.
She showed off a picture of her new donkeys Honky and Tonky, saying:
"They're called donks. They're docile and sweet. We have a friend who had one and we thought it was really cute."
She thinks all of the animals benefit her children and also uses her children to benefit the animals, saying:
"And it's so good for the kids to learn about animals and kindness and compassion. I make them clean the stalls."
Whatever works! Sounds like her children are blessed to have so many diverse and unique pets that most kids never get the chance to be around.
