New baby donkey

On a lovely warm sunny morning..our new baby donkey was born!!!

 We have been waiting for ages and finally Mr super cuteness has arrived!

..brand new...


such gorgeous ears!

getting a cuddle.

..checking out the world....

...still working out how to get my legs co-ordinated....

so soft and velvet...

...all this adoration can make a wee chap a bit weary...

... he was born on Thursday and now seems  to have all limbs pretty much under control....there has been unabandoned frolicking going on...plenty of hoppity skips and shows of braveness! 
.....he is as yet nameless.... 
......we are in love!!!!  

The mornings have been beautiful, still and quiet with the fog clinging to the hollows of the land...autumn is quietly opening her door.

Have a happy week

  5. Oh so adorable, I just love donkeys. You are more than welcome to have the garden verse book if you wish. Have a good week x

    1. Dear MemeRose, that would be absolutely lovely...can you bear to part with it though? If you send me your contact details we could do a 'swap'. As I am pretty computer illiterate not sure how to do that, but would love to give it a try!
      Today I am feeling good and up and about so the rest of the week should be good.
      have a happy day
