Wednesday Dose of Cute: Scratching an Itch?

Gnat Holding Up the Tree
Or Holding up the Tree?

You never know with baby donkeys!

© 2010, the resourceful foodie farm blog where little Gnat is very cute, but he still won't let us pet him. Meanwhile, rapidly growing Gus (I can't believe how big these boys are!) is in the running for friendliest donkey ever. That guy loves being snuggled and brushed.


  1. Uh Oh, sounds like you need to buy a lariot on your next trip to town.... Or get your friend the Donkey Peddling Cowboy to rope him up for you.

  2. Hope that giant log doesn't fall on him!

    How fun to have donkeys!

  3. I love the name Gnat for a donkey. Very cute and very cute donkey. We live in a rural area and there are several donkey's that give birth every so often. This year, an adorable black baby. He was so so so cute. Still is.

  4. Your babies are sooo cute! My husband I and I came across your blog the other night and love it. How awesome it would be to live on a farm like you have!

  5. I simply cannot stand it. This is the cutest photo ever!!!

  6. What aclever guy! So cute and so smart, too! Love, love, love all the farm animals - thank you so much for sharing them with those of us who can't have such cuties! (City ordinances are so pesky :p)

  7. What a doll!!! Honestly, who could not love a donkey?! Is it true that they have very distinct personalities? I have heard people compare them to dogs. I have been toying with the idea of owning a couple when we start our little farm.

    Oh, and just as a little funny. The word verification for this comment is spanties! I kid you not. Don't worry I have my spanties on today!

  8. I'm so jealous that you have these cute farm animals in your yard! All I get in my yard are squirrels and an occasional raccoon!


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!
