On an overcast day in December, so began my quest for a photo of the neighbor's donkey.
From the snorting sounds he was making, I didn't feel a friendship vibe in the air.
He even tried to hide behind the skinny fence post.
This was the best I could do, as he continued to eye me with suspicion. Secret Agent Farmer Man advised me that I should have shown up with treats.
His equine friend, however, had no problems posing for the camera.
"Never send a man in to do a donkey's job."
