A Visit with My Donkeys

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated you on my donkeys, and I am happy to report that the "three amigos" are all doing very well.

Donkeys love being outside, where they can roam free and roll on the ground. And, while rolling on the ground helps to scratch their backs, it's also a natural behavior for donkeys to cover themselves in dust, which provides great insulation and protection from extreme cold and heat. Here at my Bedford, New York farm, my Sicilian donkeys, Rufus, Clive and Billie, are outside during the day in a large paddock near my stable. In the afternoon, they are brought back in, where they are groomed and fed.

Here are some of the latest photos - enjoy. And keep visiting - soon, I will share lots of photos from my recent holiday trip to Australia.
