Thursday Daily Dose of Cute:
It's Another Birthday Girl!

Still Wet — And Not Just Behind the Ears

Apparently Daphne felt bad that she hadn't gotten me anything for my birthday yesterday since Dolores had, so a couple of hours ago she gave birth to this darling little girl. Mother and baby are both doing fine. Way to go, Daphne — and Daddy Dan!

© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where yesterday I was wrong - there is a cuter birthday present a farmgirl could ask for than a baby donkey: two baby donkeys of course! And the winners of the Comfort Food book and totebag giveaway will be announced just as soon as everybody's done giving birth around here, which technically should be now but you never really know. (And for the last time, that doesn't mean I might be pregnant!)


  1. Happy Birthday to you and to both baby girl donkeys! Very cute photos. Very exciting!

  2. I'm completely charmed by your growing herd of donkeys. The babies are lovely. Happy belated birthday!

  3. Aurrrggg! I can't believe I missed your birthday! Happy, happy birthday, and now YOU get to name the baby, birthday girl! May all your dreams come true.....

  4. Okay, I'm officially de-lurking now. Happy Belated Birthday, Farmgirl! This is my most favorite blog by far, I stop by daily to catch a new post or check out some older ones.

    I love reading about the critters, you've even caused me to shed a tear or two. And your recipes aren't bad either!

    Have a wonderful day with your new baby girls.

  5. WOW!!! Way to go!

  6. Me again. Was just thinking...
    You could name her "Bea" as in Belated. Or Tardy. Or Daylate (pronounced quickly like: dehlate)or "Dee" could even come from that.

    But I'm sure you've already got something better, and probably cuter, up your sleeve. Can't wait to hear her name. By the way...are the llamas still around (it was llamas wasn't it? They were just a quick blip on the radar). We never did hear their names. Or the puppies.

    One day I'll let those rest. :0)

  7. Happy birthday to you and the new babies. They are adorable! Will you be naming them soon? :)

  8. Oh, she's so cute! Will the moms let you near their babies?

  9. What timing - a donkey considerate enough to give birth in the daylight! Most of my critters seem to prefer "the wee hours" for their birthing. Great b'day gifts - are you getting to move soon also??? hint hint for updates on bakery slash new house????

  10. A belated happy birthday and what a wonderful present!

  11. Do those donkeys have timing, or what?

  12. What cute babies! Both of them! Congrats to both mommies and daddy and to you!

    And Happy Birthday to you, too! What wonderful birthday presents you got!

  13. Ohh... soo cute! What are you going to name her? How about Endora? Y'know...from the old TV show Bewitched. When I saw Wednesday's post about Esmeralda, her name immediately made me think of Bewitched.
    Anyway, take care!

  14. I love the babies! What a great birthday gift. What are you going to do with them all? (I'll take one off your hands for you!)

  15. I hope you had a wonderful birthday! I love the new babies!

  16. Happy Birthday to you and the sweet little ones! What a treat!

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!
