© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where Esmeralda (who was just 6 days old when this photo was taken back on July 12th) is 100% donkey but has turned into quite the little attention hound. And yes, a baby donkey who runs right over whenever she sees you and can't get enough hugs and cuddles is definitely cause for some serious cute overload around here.


  1. Yes, yes, baby donkeys are cute, but . . . BEAR! Hello, my love! How nice to see your smiling face.

  2. Baby donkey cuddles should help make up for not being able to cuddle the puppies. Bonus: she looks to be the same size as the puppies =)

  3. So precious! Have you named the other little girl donkey yet?

  4. Donkey babies rule :o) Cuter than cute

    Best regards

  5. They are all so cute! Esmeralda is beautiful!

  6. Esmerelda, what a great name for a great little donkey!

  7. Bear looks almost embarrassed by the attention. Adorable little donkette - Esmeralda huh? excellent -

  8. Bear's got some serious competition! Those donkey eyes SLAY me.

  9. I never really thought about donkeys being cute... But they are! I want to give that donkey some hugs and kisses myself!


    Any dogs!

    Any pictures of anilmals is a-okay with me!

  11. Esmeralda is just adorable!

  12. I love the personalities in your photos! Animals are wonderful. I'm enjoying my Big Bunny this morning; she likes to sit by the open door and sniff the breeze. Simple pleasures for both of us.

  13. Hey Farm Girl! What every happened with the name of the other baby donkey? The other "e"? Did you pick a name? :-)

  14. Every time I swing by your blog, I'm surprised at how adorable the photos are, it's like each of your little animals has a personality of it's own...and I shouldn't be surprised because, like I said, it happens every time :)!

  15. Have you ever used donkeys as guardian animals? I love donkeys and would love to work with them. I am just not sure that they would be safe from predators too.

  16. So cute! You are lucky to have the room for all those critters!


  17. I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog. I grew up on a farm right outside of Charleston, SC and now live in Concord, farm! I miss living out in the open. I will be checking back by again. Oh and the blueberries look yummy.

  18. The extreme baby donkey cuteness has me in a major tizzy. What is it with baby animals?

    I was on vacation when two (2!)beautiful baby elephants were born at the Pittsburgh Zoo. I got 4 emails, from 4 completely separate people, who couldn't wait until I came back to tell me .

    You should see them, they are insanely cute.They are on the Pittsburgh Zoo website.

    Did you know that when a baby elephant is born, all the females in the herd trumpet? (A zookeeper told me that all the zookeepers trumpet, too.) After 20 some months gestation, a racket is definitely called for!


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.
