Singing Donkeys?

Every morning when I go out to the barn
I am greeted by this duo ~

it never fails...when they hear the slam of the back porch screen door,
they start their routine ~

they whinny, whine & harmonize
with each other,
singing me their Starving Donkey songs...

a carrot or two, some sweet molasses feed
and a flake of fresh hay later,
I get this:
a kiss from Pinnochio ~

so I am charting a new sampler,
"Singing Donkeys"

{{oh, yes...I did mention about Dancing Sheep in my last post...
no worries, I would never forget them ~
they will have their own sampler designed just for them}}

(more on that to come...)

it's Open House at school today,
Hannah will get her schedule and we will pay our fees for books & things...
only one more day till she's in her last year of high school!

don't blink....
it really does go by that fast ~

Wishing you all a fantastic day filled with those who love you most!

Blessings from the Farm...

When I help with my daughter's horses I get the same thing. I don't get rewarded with a kiss though-usually just a face full of dust. Looking forward to "Singing Donkeys"-sounds very unique.

I love it when you post about your donkeys. They're just the cutest couple ever. Wish I could hear that donkey serenade.
