Isn't she cute! This is jennet (a female donkey). She lives down the road and spends her days in a prairie of poppies and multitude of other colorful weeds - such the life! She's about 20 years old.
Her late morning hee-haws sound out down the country path and are a welcome follow-up to the roosters' early morning cock-a-doodle-doo's. When we take a walk I always pack a pocket of carrots. As you can catch from the shot, she wants the carrots. She's so spoiled but terribly cute, so it's a pleasure. And only once she's had all her carrots will she stretch over the fence to have her nose scratched.
