And How To Get My Donkeys into Your Living Room
Try to get over the initial shock
Scratch an itch
And defend it with your life, just in case somebody is on their way to fill it. (photos taken 9/16/10)
This was such a fun surprise! My talented, animal loving friend Leigh Jackson, who creates the most wonderful modern dog portraits in her Noisy Dog Studio in Washington state, has finally moved out of the doghouse and into the barnyard. She has a brand new series of paintings called Hoofs and Horns, and guess who stars in her first ever donkey portrait?
That's right—Gnat and Esmeralda! You can see the photo Leigh worked from if you click here and scroll down. Little Gnat (who is doing great) was only about ten hours old when I took it. I think she captured them both beautifully, don't you? This original 18" x 18" work of art is available for purchase. Want to own some really cute, very low maintenance donkeys? You'll find all the details here.

9/23/10: A Baby Donkey Story in Pictures
© 2010 FarmgirlFare.com, the art imitates life foodie farm blog where it's been 12 whole days since I posted any baby donkey photos. I was trying to keep the Farmgirl Fare homepage from being taken over by longears, but I started suffering from withdrawals. I think I need to get started on that new Donkey A Day series soon (which won't be on the homepage).
