As she shows to the tune of her own “I’m A Survivor,” Reba McEntire‘s donkeys are “not the least bit impressed” with her feeding skills.
Self-professed #CountryGirl and #FarmLife Outsider Reba is also a #Survivor. Monday, she’s “surviving” the displeasure of her donkeys.
“When it’s time to feed your donkeys and they’re not the least bit impressed,” the country megastar captions her latest TikTok to the tune of her smash hit: I’m A Survivor – Reba McEntire.
Within, Reba waltzes straight up to her livestock, only for the donkeys to give her the cold shoulder. One after the other. I can back up Reba in saying these beasts of burdens gave us the term “jack***” for a reason…
But where, exactly, is the farm she’s tending? As Outsiders will know, Reba McEntire sold her lavish Tennessee estate, Starstruck Ranch, back in 2017 after her divorce. She has another estate in Beverly Hills, California, sure – but there’s definitely not a farm there…
Moreover, we legitimately have no idea where Reba’s newest home is. That is, if she decided to purchase another in the South. If she has, then she’s done a remarkable job at keeping it under wraps!
So where are McEntire and her donkeys now?
Reba McEntire Returns to Her Family’s Oklahoma Ranch
As even sharper fans will know, Reba McEntire spent the majority of her youth on her family’s Oklahoma ranch. The singer’s hometown is a tiny one: Chockie of the state’s Atoka County. And it’s a place she often speaks of and will forever adore.
Reba grew up riding horses and raising livestock in Chockie, where her father purchased a 40-acre plot back in the 1950s, Velvet Ropes cites. In the time since, the McEntires would transform their ranch into an 8,000 acre estate. Fans have even seen the lands in Reba’s 2015 “Just Like Them Horses” music video.
Then, when the COVID-19 pandemic changed our world forever, Reba McEntire would travel back to her childhood roots. During the worst throws of it all, the superstar spent her time at home with family on their ranch. She helped work the farm to pass the time – and looks like she’s still doing so today with her donkeys! Even if they aren’t at all impressed with her.
Despite my earlier comments, donkeys can be wonderful, sweet companions. While Reba’s donkeys seem impartial to her, it is more likely that they simply don’t know her. Livestock create deep bonds with their caretakers – something that is engrained in both us and them – and has been for centuries. I’ve no doubt that if these chaps keep having Reba McEntire hits sung to them by the legend herself, they’ll come around in no time.
