Wednesday Dose of Cute: Let's Roll

Let's roll donkeys 1 - FarmgirlFare.com

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?

  1. Their backs most have been so itchy all winter! Our cats do the same on the gravel drive when the snow goes.

  2. Well I got my treat....seeing my old friend DDD. I've missed him and all the donkeys.....Love seeing the true green grass, too.

    I had trouble loading the site at first, then there was a message asking if I wanted to reload, clicked yes and a window came up saying it was a Windows issue and it would be reported, after which the post came right up.

    I'm having such a hard time with myblog, too. Pictures are nearly impossible. Not able to do a thing tonight.
    Oh well, I got to visit donkeyland and that's much better. All is well in my world!
