craig said no.

when i asked him if we could get one of these.
a teeny tiny donkey.

craig: what would you do with it?
me:  feed it & take it for walks...duh?
craig:'s still a NO!
he's no fun :)

who wouldn't want a tiny donkey?
their no bigger than the goldendoodles on the block.
they could eat all my weeds.

our friends alden, joan & karla were nice enough to let us come out and see them and their horses over memorial weekend.
which seems like forever ago...
alden married us.
which also seems like forever ago.
this was the first time that they had ever had the harness on they were pretty shy at first.
i've been told they are much better and come right to you now.
did you know that you are supposed to shave donkeys in the summer?
i didn't...i just assumed that's how their fur was.
i AM NOT a farm savoy girl.

alden is teaching his grandson gabe to be a farm savoy boy though.
they just got this horse this year...her name is lucky charm.
...and she is beautiful.
such a shiny coat.
i wonder what she uses?  :)
 they also board 3 other horses out on the farm.

i was a little apprehensive about the horses....
my last experience with one was not a pleasant one.
but these guys were all very sweet.
this is danny...he's likes to sneak up behind you and try and eat your hair.
this is spanky. (love his name!)
he is just a baby.
and babies are always hungry.

this is luxi...very sweet girl who was such a poser!
karla is quite the horse mommy :)
well, hello!
they seem to like the camera.
and the grub.
how sweet...

i guess i should tell you, they are actually called miniature donkey's.
their names are tanner & boomer.
one of them has four ears...
hahahah...just kidding :)

i bet when they are born they are just the most adorable little creatures.
these are too when they are born...and then they grow up looking like this.
thanks alden, joan, karla & gabe for a great afternoon.
we had lots of fun.
i can't wait to come back again sometime...and sneak off with one of those tiny donkey's!


  1. There are now piglets out there and they are SO cute!! Plus Tanner & Boomer are much friendlier now, and love the attention! Guess you will just have to make another trip out!

  2. hey sis you were never a farm type girl...your's a girly girl anyway that's the way i tried to raise you(:

  3. Totally awesome. That is just my kind of day.

  4. Remember my pictures from the Funny Farm? My uncle and cousin have a tiny donkey, too. He was pretty cute! They had tiny horses, too! They were definitely the kids' favorite!

  5. I didn't know Joan & Alden had a farm these days. So good to see a picture of him - looks like farm life is good to him.

  6. i would have loved to have seen a picture of you next to one.
    i would love to see the size!
    craig is always so negative! a donkey would rock and then i would get one of those miniature goats....and mary's chickens could come back!
    let's do it.

  7. Okay now I need to get miniature donkeys. They're so cute!!

    I can't even talk my husband into chickens. Not yet anyway...

    I'm about as much a farm girl as you. ;-)
    I'm learning though..

  8. These are amazing pictures. Miss ya'll so much.

  9. We can't wait to come see them either :) Happy day. We're coming for a visit in October - can we get together? (Dave & Bonnie)
