Sunday Farm Photo: Donkey Spread

Donkeys in the front field -
Donkeyland's winter location is in the front field. (Because Donkeyland isn't a place, it's a state of mind—and donkeys.)

Current lamb count: 30 (five more ewes to go!). Current donkey count: holding steady at 7. Number of donkettes who look as though they might be pregnant, despite having all three donkey boys de-jacked last summer: 1 (surprise!).

More donkeys? Here and here.
More farm landscapes? Here.

©, where the backlog of recipes and farm stories I've been meaning to share is really piling up—and includes several mostly finished paragraphs along with about 30 photos from Operation Donkey Boys (nothing graphic!), which were simply forgotten about months ago (along with so many other things). Maybe after lambing season we can get back to those neglected longears—and some favorite cold weather recipes before the cold weather is over again. How can it already be the 11th of March?


  1. Oh goody - I love donkey babies!

  2. Yep, it's almost time for the SPRING recipes! LOL!! We are starting to wonder if the mini donkette :) we bought in January is pregnant...

    1. I know - it's supposed to be in the 70s all week here. Ack! I like winter. :)

      When I was looking for a girlfriend for Donkey Doodle Dandy, I learned that every jenny for sale "might be pregnant." It was pretty funny. Baby mini donkey - how cute would that be?!

    1. That's what we're hoping - but she looks awfully bumpy. :)
