Donkeyland isn't so much a place as a state of mind (and donkeys), but the original Donkeyland is out in what we used to call the sand field (because of its sandy soil). Our seven donkeys spent the past winter in the big fenced front field (because they kept escaping from the badly fenced hayfield, which is where we wanted them to spend the winter), but on March 19th we decided that the grass had grown up enough for them to return to their beloved home base.
The first thing they did? Head straight to their favorite bare spot for a nice roll around in the dirt. First up was little Gnat. . .

And last but not least, the original, one and only, first longear on the farm, Donkey Doodle Dandy. . .
Where's my treat?
