Welcoming New Farm Friends

Hi All!

I hope you've been having a great weekend so far.  If you've visited here much you know we have a small farm where we have our Hereford cows.  Well on Friday evening we went to pick up two new furry friends who will be living with us now....

Say Hello to Zeke (Dark Chocolate) and Eli (Milk Chocolate) our new donkey friends....

They are resuce donkeys that have been living at a local horse resuce - Shadarobah Horse Rescue.  Dh sells them hay which is how he found out about them.  They are 4 & 5 year old brothers and came from a sad in a stall most of their life.

I have always liked donkeys and we've had two in the past...Nester and Katie.
Dh always said I could have another when the time was right and that must be now because the pieces just fell into place.

So every now and again I'll probably be sharing photos of my chocolate donkey friends ;)


  1. Wonderful news and photos. We were wondering about a donkey companion to my Fell pony but have no experience with them. Look forward to future posts.

  2. Aww, they're so cute! My friend just *sponsored a donkey named Penelope from a donkey refuge. I thought that was funny, so I made her a digi of her donkey and a donkey refuge sign and put them on my blog. My friend never ceases to amaze me. She's a cowgirl at heart.

  3. So happy for Zeke and Eli. They couldn't have found a better home than yours! Donna

  4. oooo. I love Donkeys. Have only met donkey's twice in my life bvut they are sooooo cute. The last one I met was named Eeyore---fitting since I have a drawing of THE Eeyore on my ankle. Thanks for being great people to rescue such sweeties.
