Friendly Donkeys

I encountered some friendly donkeys on one of my many everyday adventures recently. I routinely just drive through the countryside just to see what I might find. This time I found donkeys. Just going for a drive can be a pretty good adventure.

Donkeys may not seem unusual, but I don't see donkeys most of the time, so I made sure I stopped for a few pictures of them. What I usually see is either cows or horses. Any other kind of animal is a little different.

It was when I took this above picture that I noticed these donkeys were just as interested in me as I was in them. I didn't see it right away, but as I took my pictures I realized that they were all looking right at me. That's pretty different from the sheep that ran from me when I tried to get a few pictures.

The last time I tried to get pictures of cows they all kept turning their backs to me. I thought farm animals would be just fine with me getting out of my truck and taking a few pictures. But apparently not cows or sheep. I began to think they all hated me. I'm glad these donkeys are nice and friendly.

 Hey there, big fella.

This last one was kind of amusing. As I was taking pictures, I took a few of this white donkey. She was a little far away so I said, "Hey Whitey, come over here!" I guess the donkey heard me because she came walking right over towards me to the edge of the fence. I must have guessed her name.

I didn't stick around much longer. I just wanted to get a few pictures, not necessarily make new friends. But I guess I did make friends with them. They were certainly friendly donkeys. For that I'll remember them for a long time. I'll talk to you later.


  1. you need to go back with apple slices, or carrots!!

  2. An unusual find in my book and a great one!

  3. I would hate to see the mean ones.LOL Laid back little critters

  4. I loved that you guessed that donkey's name... but not surprised.

  5. I don't think I've seen donkeys around here when I've been out driving. I've stopped before and had cows come right up to the fence to see me and other times I've had them all take off running. I guess it just depends on the cows

  6. I have never even heard of a white donkey and now I think my life will not be complete until I see one! I love donkeys and always hope we can stop and get a picture when we see them.....thank you for showing me yours.
