Dan & His New Charges

You still have time to enter the Name That Sheep Contest!
You could win a sheep!


  1. Oh, yeah. I'm first. I rock.

    Is Dan tired of looking after all those sheep? He looks like he wants to escape!


  2. Is he satisfied with his new charges ?
    He seems want to say us " But what what I make here " ?!!!

  3. I think more like, what I have to have out with these guys? But they are all such sheep! LOL

  4. Dan looks good to me, not in the least unhappy about his "new charges".. more in fact pleased that he can be a good donkey and keep the sheep safe. Have a great day!

  5. Hi Susan - I replied to you on my blog but I'm still not totally sure how this works, so I'm responding to you here, too!

    Thanks so much for checking out my blog - it's pretty new so I am thrilled that someone has seen it! I love the 4th story - I remember getting up here on my first 4th and asking my parents what all the fuss was about. My father jokingly refers to Independence Day as the "British Thanksgiving"!!!

    I had a great time looking through your site - we had a mini-farm in Gloucestershire for a little while when I was a kid (and my parents were going through a major self-sufficiency phase). It was great fun - although we had a goat instead of a donkey!

    If it's okay with you I'm adding your site to my links!


  6. I think Dan might be a bit crotchety, but that's just me.

  7. Hello Dan Fans!
    So glad you enjoyed this picture. I was hoping to capture some of Donkey Doodle Dandy's personality, and from your comments, it appears that I was successful.

    And while we all agree that there is obviously something going through his mind regarding these new living arrangements, we don't actually know what it is, do we? Is he bored? Is he happy? Is he dreaming about escaping to the beach? Is he plotting something?

    I suppose I should just ask him. I'll let you know tomorrow what he says.

    P.S. Oh Cara,
    Do you actually think I would let you suffer this long? I answered the A & B name thing days ago, but unfortunately you missed it. It's here about halfway down the comments section.

  8. Hi Emma,
    So nice to hear from you. Welcome to the farm! (You and I were typing here at the same time, which is why it looks like I ignored you in my above comment.)

    That's so ironic about your dad and the "British Thanksgiving" after I told you my little story. Too funny. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit here. I never mind at all when someone wants to put up a link to Farmgirl Fare--I'm always flattered. Link away!

    I think Modern Girls Kitchen is off to a wonderful start, and I was so happy to discover it. I really like your writing style and sense of humor. I look forward to reading more of your posts. Maybe you'll write something about your mini-farm adventures? : )

    Hi Wendy,
    Your comment slid in while I was already typing as well. Dan crotchety? He's only three! : )

  9. *pets Dan on the head* Good boy!! :)

  10. Thanks Susan! I appreciate your comment on my blog! Regards, Sonia.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
