For several months now, actually more like several years, I have been thinking about donkeys. I don't know donkeys...have no idea how they behave, who they are, what they do. I just knew I wanted one, or perhaps two. I almost took in two donkeys this spring, but the person who was giving them up decided she loved them too much and kept them! And now I know why! This month we were asked to take these two amazing Mediterranean Miniature Donkeys..and they are wonderful!! I still don't know much about how they behave, who they are or what they do, but I know they are adorable...take a look at those beautiful faces!! .....and they are engaging (they want to be in the house..) sweet tempered (although they show me that they weigh several hundred pounds when gates are being opened)..and best of all they get along with the sheep. I love these donkeys!

How lovely it could be to take care of these donkeys! By the way, I also have this desire to take care of donkeys one day since I love taking care of animals. I've tried petting dogs and cats before, but donkey is indeed another story! The curiosity runs in me if I can do it or not, but of course, I want to believe that I can! Based on your past experiences, it's fun taking care of these donkey. But for a first timer like me, I am sure that it's going to be memorable.
