Oh my gosh he is soo cute!!!!!!!

 

I'm sort of bad with names but I do like the idea of naming him something to commemorate your Cuba trip! Hopefully your dad comes up with something good and please keep us updated with pictures of that little guy!!

OMG that is the cutest little thing ever!!! Thanks for sharing! She takes great animal shots ... her donkeys are gorgeous! I've passed along the link to my parents, I know they'll love it. :)


Oh and I've JUST been informed by my father that he now has a name.... drum roll please:



Hamish!!!


Don't ask me why ... it's a Scottish name ... and I think my father just thinks it'll be funny to scream out that name when they want him to come. LOL

OMG I need to show my husband this. He has a minor donkey obsession. That is the cutest thing I've ever seen.

I've been wondering all morning if I could have a donkey now. Shoot, we might live next to a farm (there's a thread about it), and we'll have land. I want a donkey now! Hahahahhaaaa. I am not even kidding that I've been wondering if I could have one.

For anyone thinking of getting a donkey *cough*Carly*cough* they make great "pets". The ones my parents have are miniature donkeys... but donkeys in general have great therapeutic benefits. Time spent with a donkey means time de-stressing and relaxing for you! Donkeys, apparently, possess calming traits that pass to humans. 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:
