Sunday Daily Dose of Cute: Fashion Statement

Evie Models the Newest Look in Baby Donkey Halters

© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where Evie is actually wearing Esmeralda's halter, which I chose because I thought it would look nice against her darker fur. Evie's halter is blue to match her lead, but Esmeralda wasn't a willing halter wearer when I started this project and Evie was. She let me slip it right on her (amazing!) and doesn't seem to mind that it's Esmeralda's—just don't tell her it doesn't fit quite right because it was actually made for a baby horse (I unbuckle the back strap rather than cramming it over her slightly-larger-than-foal ears to get it on). No matter what, it's certainly a lot spiffier than that infamous ratty blue halter Donkey Doodle Dandy arrived on the farm wearing all those years ago.


  1. When I first saw the pic before I read "the award winning, etc" I thought to myself, I must comment about Dan's old halter. So funny, you mentioned it first.

    still loving the blog...

  2. very stylish and sassy! No wonder she didn't resist.

  3. Very nice bright colors. She looks lovely.

  4. What a cutie! I love looking at pictures of all your adorable animals!

    Michelle :)

  5. Evie is the most adorable little baby. So fluffy.

  6. Girls like to share clothes so maybe the E-gals are being fashionable. DDD's ratty blue attire will live on in critter fashion lore.

  7. I see this year's hot colors in the donkey fashion world are Plum and Electric Blue . . .

  8. She looks so cool with her modern, edgy colors. She could hang with home girls!

  9. Ohhhhhhh! Sweetest baby donkey EVER in her little halter!

    Did I mention I was going to show up on your doorstep unnannounced one day, ready for my new full-time, baby-donkey-cuddling job? :-P Oh well, I guess it 's "announced" now!

  10. So when will Evie be walking the red carpet? :) She's positively adorable!

  11. How adorable! She looks so sweet!

    Please stop by my blog for a special surprise. (
