Poky Watch


I love my Poky! She is so beautiful. And sweet. (Jack, too.) Donkeys are such rewarding (and easy) farm animals. They give a lot of love, and they don’t require much effort. A pair of donkeys is a great addition to a small farm, if you’re thinking of it!

Meanwhile, we are on the Poky watch here waiting to see when she will have a baby. She’s been with Jack for a year now and Jack has selflessly and tirelessly done his job. He loves his work. He loves his Poky…..

I’m keeping a close eye on her. (Annabelle, too–no sign of lambs yet.)

    Awww she’s so purty! I have been trying to talk hubby into mini donkeys for our farm.

    We already have cattle, chickens, ducks, guineas, cats, a dog, a fish…. we really need donkeys.

    He says no.

    New babies soon! By the way, how are Clover and her new little one? Haven’t heard anything about them for a while. Hope everything is OK.

    I am very excited too! I love Jack and Poky, they are what first drew me to your blog. I pray all goes well for her and thank you for sharing them.

    How are donkeys like that for grazing? We have a pasture that has a mix of grasses and weeds….it would be nice to have a couple animals to keep it down rather than mowing it like we do now.

    I hope she is preggers, they will make a pretty baby donkey!

    :happyflower: Oh my I heart your Poky and Jack. I keep telling my man and kids I want a donkey for Mothers day one year..
    Can’t wait to see pictures of babies.

    My hubby is just getting used to the idea that someday we might have a couple of goats… I think I better keep my mouth shut regarding a jack and a jenny right now, lol! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Oh, oh, oh—–a baby Pokyjack would be so cute. I hope they get the memo soon. ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Window On The Prairie says:

    Not to get too personal, but are either Pokey or Annabel bagging up? (udders filling out) If so then they are really close.

    Oh, can’t wait to see what a baby donkey looks like.. How long do they carry the babies before they give birth? I’m glad that Jack loves Poky ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather ๐Ÿ™‚ :cowsleep:

    I can hardly wait to see more babies! It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen a baby donkey (foal) on a blog post!

  12. yvonnem says:

    She is really beauiful, can’t wait to see the baby when she finally has it. Hope all goes well. :heart:

  13. Julia says:

    I’m looking forward to this baby as much as anyone here. It will be beyond cute.

    I’m curious. Will it be safe to leave Poky and the new baby in with Jack, or will you have to separate them? If so…Poor Jack!
