Donkeys are Adorable.

It has been a gorgeous day today.

Midmorning I put Muffin on the lead and set off for a walk around the neighbourhood in glorious sunshine.

I didn’t take my camera with me but everywhere looked so green and pretty that I whipped my iPhone out and started snapping pics along the way.

Luscious green fields.  Heavenly to see after all the dull grey days we’ve had this winter.

Muffin, now 14 and a half years old isn’t as energetic as he used to be and by the time we were halfway round he was panting like crazy.  Lucky for him the door was open at the King Bill where I asked the landlord for some water for one thirsty little dog.

On the way back I passed the field with the donkeys in.  They saw me coming.  I made a couple of clicking noises.  As you do.

Seconds later there they were at the gate, waiting for me to pet them.  I’m sure they were smiling at me.  Aren’t they cute?!

Look at that adorable face!  Lindsay, the lady who owns Attica Yarns, the wool shop I love going to, has a couple of donkeys on her farm.  Both rescue donkeys, one is called Roy and the other, Thomas Church!  Unusual, funny and cute name, Thomas Church, for a donkey don’t you think?  It makes me smile every time I think of it.

I’m linking this post to Outdoor Wednesday over at A Southern Daydreamer blog.

Oh Kathleen! What a beautiful landscape you have to enjoy a brisk walk! How lovely! Those donkeys are so darn cute, I couldn't stop smiling. And they look nice and healthy too.

Hi Kathleen, thank you for the sweetest comment.

I LOVE your post and seeing beautiful England. Especially the donkeys. Your pup is also a cutie. How nice that you could get water for your pup by such a kind person. That makes me smile as I am a dog lover in a big way.

Happy Spring,
xo, Jeanne

I too think donkeys are adorable. The farm down the street has a miniature donkey...I would love to have one of those!
