Monday Farm Photo #2: Who's A-fraid Of The Big Bad Creek? The Big Bad Creek?

That Would Be Our Donkeys

Back in February when the wet weather creek started flowing during all those snow and ice storms (this was before it flooded over), the donkeys literally camped out for three days up by The Shack (complaining loudly the entire time) rather than get their precious hooves wet crossing over to the barn. Begging, pleading, coaxing, and even a bucket full of treats dangled temptingly from the other side of the water didn't work. Fortunately they've gotten a little better since then. A little.

  1. those are adorable donkeys! stubborn, but adorable.

  2. I've enjoyed your photo's and your stories. Even tried some of your recipes (though I'm a bit more of a curry or kimchi person.) The donkeys remind me of our goats. They beg to go out to pasture, but when we have to cross a wet spot, I have to drag them kicking and screaming to get them where they want to be.

  3. I think donkeys are very adorable animals. =) They are less suave than horses perhaps, but a cute version of horses. =)

  4. Looking at all those rocks under and around the donkeys suddenly helps explain how you find so many heart rocks. That's a lot of rocks!
