My Little Donkey


Pocahontas has the most beautiful eyes.
Soulful eyes.
I love to look in her eyes. She looks back at me and she asks me for an apple.
Or a cookie.
She tells me Clover is uppity and that those chickens are So Annoying and that she misses her mama in Ohio.

I tell her that Clover will warm up to her in time—just ask Annabelle—and that she’ll get used to the chickens and that I’ll be her mama now.

She follows me around whenever I come into the goat yard and nuzzles up to me.

She is just a sweet, giant baby.
With sweet, giant eyes.

Annabelle nuzzles up to me, too. She wants to come to the porch. The goats nuzzle up to me—they want a cookie. Pocahontas just wants…..

    Yes her eyes are adorable, but oh how I love her NOSE! Isn’t that the most delightful muzzle you ever saw?!

  2. Patricia Herman says:

    She’s adorable. Love those eyes too. You must bake cookies non-stop!!!! Thanks for the stories.

  3. Kathryn says:

    How precious!

  4. Box Call says:

    She is precious. Grandpa never allowed anything on the farm that didn’t have a job. The oxen had to pull the sled, the horses the plow and harrows. Goats for the brush, pigs the ultimate recycler were food. Chickens for eggs and cows for milk. I think he would have made a place for Pocahontas though. However, I know for certain he would have used the phrase, “Ain’t no bigger than a fart.” Granpa always cracked me up.

    Love her! Beautiful sweet face…I love your farm, its just what I would have, cute, adorable animals you could just hug all day long. (except for mean rooster but maybe he is just misunderstood???? Not!)
    I will be making the beef and italian pepper pie, sounds delish.

  6. Diane says:

    So adorable. Cant beat an animal who all they ask for is love. My dog is like that. He is happy to wake up each morning to hugs and pets. And end the day with the same. Add in extra belly rubs and he had an excellent day. lol. The cat on the other hand requires his food bowl to have food in it, a dark place to hide and when he wants love and attention he will let me know.

  7. Cyndi L. says:

    What a sweet animal. I just want to throw my arms around her neck and give her a big hug.

    If all Pocahontas wants is love, she has that in abundance.

  10. FidLdd says:

    Yup the eyes have it,the smile for the camera is saying it too.She is just one Love Bundle.Has she found her voice yet? This is so funny when they practice for getting it just right.

    You need a cookie tree for your critters.
    I just love to show Little N. your blog! :happyfeet:
    He wants to see more of Pepsi. He says that if him and Sprite have a baby, they can name it Dr. Pepper. LOL

    I was just wondering how Pocahontas was doing. She is beautiful.

    You have the greatest farm going…anywhere! Pocahontas is so adorable. She will be all comfy and feeling at home in no time at all.

  15. Gail says:

    The last picture of Pocahontas says it all! Pure love. What a sweetie. I just want to hug her and kiss that precious muzzle!

  16. Gizmo says:

    She’s adorable! Remember to keep the apples away from Clover and Nutmeg (they’ll dry up their milk). 🙂

  17. Karen says:

    We have a baby mini, too. Her name is Lilly and if she could she would climb right up in my lap for extra love. She has to settle for big face hugs.

    I tell her, “Lilllllllll-eeee, you are just so sweet.” She likes that. :happyflower:

    I have mini donkeys and they are bestest friends. Their first mama is a breeder and said that they REALLY need to be in pairs to be happy. I hope yours has a new brother or sister soon. They are very playful together and bond with each other quickly.
