The CUTEST things


Last Friday the kids and I went to the MN Horse Expo at the State Fairgrounds in St. Paul.
We watched the Parade of Breeds. Dozens of different breeds, from the largest Shires to the tiniest Mini-horses.
We also toured the barns and met a delightful couple that breeds and raises Sicilian Miniature Donkeys. It turns out they live only a few miles from us. They have 15 donkeys currently, gorgeous little furry equines who don't even come up to my waist when they are full grown, and they are expecting 4-5 new babies this spring. This couple graciously invited us to come visit the babies.
I want a donkey. I want two donkeys so one would not be lonely. Think Peter will let me have one? These little darlings might have to be featured in a book.

  1. Awww, what a cute face. However, the Little Princess is remembering her first foray to the rodeo. As we entered the arena, the animal smell just hit us. The Little Princess said Ewwwww! Bet Awww for the little donkey would be quickly choked into an ewwwww

  2. I'm sure Peter would love having little donkeys. Can I be there when you ask him?

  4. Maybe you should get three... the more the merrier, right? :-)

  5. Actually, a great option which would give the best of both worlds would be to offer donkey sitting services when the owners have to leave town.

    Your welcome Pete :)
