© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where people often ask if our donkeys do anything besides look cute. The answer is sort of. The idea was that they would help protect the sheep by chasing off the coyotes, but as Joe puts it, now that we have a whole herd of donkeys, they pretty much just like to protect each other. They do eat a lot of weeds and brush that the sheep don't care for. And of course their entertainment value is priceless. Besides, you know how far cute goes in my book.


  1. Pretty cute they are. How do they protect the sheep? They just do not look mean...but I bet they have a mean kick!

  2. Boy, they sure grow up fast!

    What a great picture.

  3. too cute - too cute baby - got to run for shelter got to run for shade (to be sung to the melody of too hot baby) just a little disco tune for the donkettes! They are adorable - it is like my goat addiction - they really aren't much good but which one would I get rid of?? Yep - cute goes a really long way

  4. Cute can you take you everywhere - at least your cutie pie donkeys, sheep, dogs, cats, chickens - well, all of the animals!

    Seriously, that picture looks like it belongs in a story book! It is so precious!

  5. That is a daily dose of cute. Thank you.~~Dee

  6. Nice clean up crew you got there.

  7. they really sure grow up fast


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!
