Ismael Fernández could not wait any longer to visit the family farm in Malaga, Spain, earlier this week after the local government initiated the first phase of reopening following a nationwide coronavirus lockdown.
The anticipated visit meant that the 38-year-old would not only get to see his brother, but also his pet donkey Baldomera.
Monday’s reunion simply was a tear jerking moment for the best friends as they came face-to-face for the first time in more than two months.
Ismael Fernández shared the emotional reunion he had Monday with his pet donkey Baldomera at his family’s farm in the southern Spain city of Malaga. He opened an Instagram account for the donkey, @Baldomerayyo, and uploaded the selfie above as the first post

Fernández had no idea how Baldomera would react upon seeing him and recorded the moment he approached the fenced-off area at the farm in El Borge.
Baldomera is seen in the video slowly trotting toward Fernández, who subsequently stroked her furry head while asking her where had she been.
Fernández got a bit emotional and sobbed behind the camera as Baldomera started braying.
“I am not ashamed that you hear me cry because here is one of the most unconditional demonstrations of love that exist,’ Fernández wrote on a Facebook post that included a selfie of him and the donkey.
