Galini's story & photo gallery

Galini
July 2018: never a dull moment...a new donkey arrived in the beginning of July from a nearby mountain village.
Her owner, a very kind farmer who loved her dearly, could no longer afford to feed her but did not want to sell her for work although he had many offers.  We decided to call her Galini, which means serenity ... she's so calm, friendly and small.  
Galini meaning and name origin 

The meaning of Galini (Γαληνη (Ancient Greek) is "calm, serenity". It is of Greek origin. From Galenus, which derives from "galene". It was the name of a second-century Greek physician whose research provided a basis for accepted medical practices for 1500 years

Your name, Galini, makes you self-reliant, creative in practical ways, and an independent diligent worker.
 You work best alone making your own decisions as it is not always easy for you to respond to the advice and direction of others as you feel the need to be in control.
You enjoy the simple pleasures of life especially activities that take you outdoors
