Saturday Dose of Cute:
Have You Heard? Winter Weather is on the Way!

It's Time to Get Up

And Fluff Up!

© Copyright 2009, the scurrying around collecting green tomatoes in the garden while the squirrels gather black walnuts in the yard foodie farm blog where 30° temperatures, along with a widespread first frost, are predicted for tonight. Not to worry—little Fernando (yep, I've finally decided that's definitely his name, though I thank you for all the other great suggestions!) is all dried off and ready for the first really cold night of his life.


  1. Fernando is adorable. He looks like he already is prepared with his fine coat for cooler weather.

  2. I just want to give that baby donkey a big hug! You sound as busy as the little grasshopper..putting away for winter. I just want to thank you for your wonderful blog, I love it so much! Come say hi :D

  3. He is over-the-top cute! Loved the other photos you linked to. These photos have made me SMILE! Give all of them a big hug for me! You need to write a book just about your donkey crew. They are wonderful!

  4. What a sweet little donkey! He sure is fuzzing up!

    Love your blog :)

  5. Fernando is an excellent choice for a name - and brrr - yes it seems to have chilled down considerably since it quit raining constantly!

  6. That's the perfect name for him! :) And the fluffliness of winter, I always loved that when my horses got their winter coats..I used to snuggle with them when I fed them every day and warm up! It's gets cold along the Canadian border!!

  7. He looks so warm and cuddly. I just want to snuggle with him and pet him. I'll even bring him treats. What does he like?

  8. YES!! Did the song lyrics inspire you?


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!
