Reese Witherspoon’s Ojai, Calif., ranch was a serene, romantic venue when she and husband Jim Toth wed there in April. But now, things have apparently changed.

The neighbors are reportedly up in arms, as they think her farm’s donkeys are a real pain in the you-know-what. The core issue, according to Us Weekly, is that the animals — named Honky and Tonk — hee and haw at such a high volume “they’re driving us crazy,” says a source who spoke with the magazine. The local added, “It’s so bad that a few residents sent [Reese] a letter.”

Still, the source adds they aren’t looking for a fight with Witherspoon. “She’s beloved here. I’m not sure she even knows what’s going on.”
