Dearest Theresa; Oh My, LOVELY looking donkeys♡♡♡ I've never seen them and I remember my silliness when little. I wondered why they are called differently even if I wasn't able to see the difference from horses p:-)
These cuties must be GREAT guards☆☆☆

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

My brother in law was thinking of raising goats on his farm and was going to buy a donkey to keep the coyotes away. I never knew they were so protective.

Awwww they are so cute and have such unique coloring for donkeys.

Carola Bartz said...

The spotted donkeys are lovely! I would have stopped for them as well - such beautiful creatures. In a meadow close by our house there is a sweet donkey, beloved by all the children in the neighborhood who call him Don Quixote. When you call him he runs at a gallop to the fence because he simply knows that there are apples and carrots waiting for him...

A fine shot of these donkeys. They have such attractive color schemes compared to the donkeys i"ve seen in the past.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

The donkeys are cute, I like their spots.

William Kendall said...

They are a cute pair. The farm that had fields behind our home had dairy cows, and there were always a donkey or two with the herd out in the fields to keep them company and keep them calm in a storm. The donkeys would come up to the fence from time to time.

Bob Bushell said...

I love those Donkeys, beautiful.

joeh said...

I like your fence posts.

er...posts about fences.

Your fence posts are nice too, but I don't expect to see a post about fence posts.

Third base.

Phil Slade said...

Guard Donkeys! Never heard of that but what a good idea. They can be noisy and bad tempered I believe.
