One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The donkey cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. The farmer was also helpless and could not do anything.

Finally, the farmer decided the animal was old and it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.  So instead of leaving the donkey to starve and die in pain, he decided to bury him alive. 

So, he invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel mud into the well. 

At first, the donkey realized what was happening and brayed (cried) terribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down. 

A few shovels load later, the farmer feeling pity finally looked down the well and was astonished at what they saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. 

As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt or mud on top of the animal, he would shake it off again and take another a step up.

Very soon, to everyone’s amazement, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and walked off.
