Friday Donkeys

As everyone knows, we have two donkeys here, Smoke and Joe. Smoke was the first donkey here and he came to keep one of my ponies company since she was by herself. Then this pony had to go over the bridge and there was only a big horse left there so I got Joe to keep Smoke company that was somewhere near the same size as he was. 
You can tell by this picture just how small, Joe and Smoke are compared to the normal sized horse whose name is Frannie. 
The reason that I am able to have these two miniature donkeys is that they each have a little something wrong with them which makes them not as valuable as show donkeys. Please notice Joe's while muzzle (around his nose). But he has some trouble or I should say had some trouble with one hind leg which he has out grown which is good. 
Here is Smoke. As you can see, he has a black muzzle which means he could not be a show donkey. Don't you love those ears and he loves to have his ears scratched and Joe does not like that at all. 

One day I was out walking around the pasture, and Joe came up to me looking for help. Guess he thought there might be something to eat in the bucket and found himself with this problem. He was asking me to please help him. The donkeys are great fun to have around and very easy to take care of.
**************
Happy Friday to all.

  9. Smoke and Joe are the most HANDSOME donkeys ever...I finks the real reason they are not show donkeys is 'cos they would just keep winning all the time and the other donkeys would be jealous..right?

  20. They are too cute. I guess I never realized they were mineatures. Mom's cousin Liz, who is like a sister to her as she was orphaned in her early 20's and joined Mom's family for all the gatherings after that, does the mule ride into the Grand Canyon every year.
