They are loyal pack animals and once you're accepted the treat you as one of their own and will never leave you. They are almost stupidly loyal to their pack (if one is attacked by a wild animal and injured, the remaining uninjured donkeys will NOT leave the injured one's side, no matter what ... whereas in a herd of horses, the other horses would flee and leave the injured one to die).

    They really ARE lovely animals ... and if you want to hear what my parent's donkeys sound like, check out this video of Elmo saying 'hi' to myself and my father:

    OMG sweet and cute!!! Maybe I want one too! lol Not all of us are lucky enough to possibly have a farm like Carly though

              i honestly don't think i've ever seen anything as cute as that huge fluffy head on that itty bitty body!!

              the name is great too... definitely has character! and i have to ask... do your parents' donkeys actually come when you call them? if so, that is amazing!

                I'll be sure to give him the biggest hug ever ... and see if I can get a pic of him with something that's very BDW ... maybe he can be our mascot. LOL

                They really do come when they're called ... and they serenade my parents (like in that YouTube video) EVERY time they call them when they're in the field ... it's pretty funny actually.
