I don't care if you call them a donkey, an ass, or a burro, I like them, but I like the miniatures best. I used to go to the cattle auction with John every week. If a donkey went through the ring and someone bought it the cowboys would laugh and make fun but now it seems to be a fad to have a donkey or two or three. Maybe they have found they do keep the coyotes away. When I spot one driving down a country road I ohhh and awww and sometime get John to stop. He spotted this baby donkey one day so took me by there to see it. I wanted to take it's picture 'cause you know it is sooo cute. It and it's Mama were close to the fence so I started creeping closer and closer to get a better shot (I know my pictures couldn't compare to the good photographers in blogs) but I like them since I'm from the old school anyway. Just as I was about to snap the picture the Mama made a noise and turned away from me and the baby did the same so that is why I have a picture of donkey hinnies. I think the Mama donkey told the little one not to talk to strangers and it minded it's Mama.
