Can't we do better than this?

Now that's more like it.

Thanks so much for the enthusiastic response from all you longear lovers who spied my little announcement up in the left sidebar about The Daily Donkey coming soon. I'm really excited about this fun new feature and am tickled that you are, too. I'm hoping to launch it next week. And unlike the Daily Doses of Cute, these will actually be appearing daily. Heehaw!  (Yes, our donkeys really do say that. Usually very loudly.)

We're deep in the heart of hay feeding season!

©, the slightly rotund foodie farm blog where I once read that the most common bad thing people do to their donkeys is let them get fat—and that it's so easy to do because they love being fed and are always so happy to get treats. I can definitely relate!


  1. I look forward to the daily donkey-your buddies are too cute for me !~!

  2. That little Gnat is the CUTEST little thing I ever saw!

    Just love the new look of your blog, so easy to see everything!

  3. Looking forward to the donkey pics. It's nice to see Dan again. He must have been feeling pushed out by the babies!

  4. On this really snowy and still storming morning, this is most welcome news. I am a DDD and donkey fan from way back. What fun to look forward to the Daily Donkey. You made my day, as you have done so often.

  5. I saw the 'Coming Soon' announcement in the corner and thought 'Heehaw' myself - a daily dose of sweet donkey-ness is a treat for all! Can't wait to see what's up with the donkeys! Of course, you could have 'daily doggies', daily sheep, daily chickens, daily cats - love them all!!

    Your new 'look' is awesome - your hard work is wonderful!

  6. Donkeys aren't the only "pets" who struggle with chubbiness during these cold winter days! My Moxie Kitty wants nothing to do with the snow outside & thinks anytime someone walks into the garage, she is supposed to be fed!
    Stay warm!

  7. Before I found your blog, I thought I was the only one that was in love with donkeys and their adorable personalities and antics.
    My daughter's in-laws own a small ranch with donkeys and I can't wait to visit my little furry friends when I am in Northern California-these little guys bring me so much joy!
    I am looking forward to "The Daily Donkey!"

  8. Looking forward to the pics.

    I luv to hear my neighbors donkeys braying.

  9. Would love for you to include some donkey video so we could see/hear them in action! :)

  10. Hello

    I have just stumbled across your fantastic site and as I too am a longear lover I was particularly interested in your donkey blogs. The photos are so cute. I am a volunteer for the large English Donkey Sanctuary in England and help out my local branch, where we do riding for disabled and disadvantaged children. I have lots of photos on my website of the donkeys and fundraising events so if you would like to read more then please click on my name.




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!
