Zoey was a unfortunately only about 32, when she decided to leave us. She joined the Misfit family shortly after Boulder, they became fast friends and remained a codependent pair for the 24 years they were with us. Zoey was, however, a donkey who required you to tirelessly work to earn her trust. But once you earned it, it was a badge of honor - a stamp of approval that showed you, you had officially become a part of the Misfit family.
Zoey was timid but knew how to set boundaries and loved being Boulder's lifelong companion. Boulder and Zoey passed away within a week of each other, which broke our hearts, but nonetheless symbolized their closeness; they simply could not go on without each other.
We will never truly understand why Zoey had to leave us so soon, but her passing did in many ways speak to her character: she decided when to let you in, and she decided when it was time for her to go beyond the rainbow, seeking new adventures with Boulder by her side.
