Animal Magnetism



I would like to think this pair came down to the Farmette again yesterday just to visit with me.  However, after spying me in my muck boots they took off like a shot.  



They did leave some gifts in the yard and pasture.  I shall be driving the wheelbarrow around today collecting those calling cards for my flower beds.  




Here is Mr. Donkey following his horse friend back up the road in the early morning sunshine.  He looks sad to leave.....


Somehow I think they will both be back.

  8. What a fun pair of guests! I really love donkeys. Once when I was a kid, we had horses walking around our yard. We lived in a busy subdivision with open fields nearby. They must have walked down from the fields. It was a big surprise!

  9. Oh, they probably just remembered something so had to scoot. Like you said, they'll be back. :)

  10. I think that if you take a few carrots or rattle some oats in a can.. you might get a close encounter of the "herd" kind.

  11. What cute visitors....they should leave their gifts for their own family though. :)

  17. Every time I pass by where the Amish horses have been parked, I think about how good their calling cards would be for the garden!
