  1. Such cuties! I love donkeys so much! They are such sweet animals...

    Happy Birthday!



  2. Awe, how cute! I just want to give her a hug!

    We had a mini donkey once named Milton...he was so much fun!



  3. These donkey pictures are so precious!! Who knew donkeys were so adorable???

    So... how many donkeys do you have now? I've lost count!

  4. She is very cute! Love your photos.

  5. Those pictures are adorable... take care!

  6. Awww. Adorable. I just stumbled upon your blog and I am sure I will be back. Too cute!

  7. Susan I might have missed it, but why are you wishing for a girl?

  8. Hi Everybody,
    Thanks for the comments. I'm so glad you're enjoying the donkey photos!

    Hi Barb,
    I had no idea donkeys could be so adorable either, but the minute I first laid eyes on Donkey Doodle Dandy (aka Dan) back in 2002 I was smitten. : )

    Right now we have 5 donkeys: Dan, Dolores (Dan's girlfriend #1) and her daughter Esmeralda, plus Daphne (Dan's girlfriend #2) and her daughter Evie. The four girls are also known as The Donkettes.

    Hi Ramona,
    Since you can't have two jacks (breeding male donkeys) together (which is why we had to sell Dolores' son, Dinky), I'm hoping Evie has another girl so we get to keep her. : )


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!
