The world is his scratching post.

Want to see more?
You'll find lots of Donkey Doodle Dandy photos here. And the story of how Dan came into my life is

  1. DD Dan looks so blissed out in the later photos. AHhhhhh, relief.

  2. I am glad I went back to 8/30/07 to look at Donkey pics, cause I read a mention of Cary, I thought something bad had happened and you were afraid to tell us. whew!

  3. Oh, What a darling Dan is. Makes me miss my childhood days on the farm. I took some time to browse through your past posts and photos. All I can say is Wow.

  4. We just became the owners of two mini donkeys to protect our sheep flock. Great to have around the farm. Now its hard to imagine the farm without them. Donkeys are not stubborn, just very smart and cautious. Its a common misconception.

  5. What a great line of pics! How wonderful to scratch that itch...LOL!

  6. Hi from the UK !

    Your blog is so inspiring, I hope to try lots of your recipes!

    I love reading about your farming life, I think I've had an idealistic view of country life but still love to have a peek at it through your eyes.

    I'm starting my own blog -, may I link to yours please?

  7. DD Dan is so cute!!! I had to laugh at the pictures as they progressed...he just looks so content and happy...

  8. Oh, Dan!! What a gem. I just wanted to scroll through the pictures quickly so I could imagine I could see him in motion.

  9. Fantastic!!!
    And he still has his summer coat - no fuzz yet.


  10. Hey, whoa, if you scroll down really fast, you get that pseudo-cinematic effect. Very cool.


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.

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.
