Rein

  Status: Hostess

Rein is an 18-yr-old mule. Rein was purchased as a baby by Dana Stillwell. Dana has always had a soft spot for long ears and when she first saw Rein and her twin brother Beau (get it, Rein and Beau? Rainbow!), Dana knew they had to come home with her. Rein opens the door to other rescues and keeps them in line.

Fun Fact: Rein owns the place and she knows it! She gets very jealous when her mom, Dana, gives anyone else attention!
