I got a donkey! Well actually...he's technically my dad's donkey. I've wanted a mini-donkey for a long time. While we were in Ireland my dad said he'd get a mini donkey when my nephew (who was only about 4 months at the time) asked for a donkey. We've all be coaching, Finley, and my mom got him to say "I want a donkey, Papa" on Christmas.
Then this adorable little guy was hanging out at work being used for one of the classes. When they were done with him he was going to go back to the person who brought him in or he was for sale for $100. I had seen him several times and the people who were working with him said he was a super boy. Long story short, my dad said okay to getting him and I brought him home on Tuesday.
This donkey is so darn cute. The horses were quite interested when he arrived and Roz was simply enamored. Roz hardly left the fence line for the first 3 or 4 days that he was here. Liam is as sweet as can be and very social. He brays when you come outside and loves to be petted. I'm having trouble finding a halter that fits him since he has an unusually shaped head. I've finally figured out that if I punch some extra holes in the crown piece of one of Emi's baby leather halters it will fit him perfectly.
Last night I improvised with with Emi's (current) halter and I took Liam down to check the mail. He was perfect! We are having an "open farm" a the end of March for people who want to bring their kids out to see the lambs and such. Liam is going to be a hit for sure!
