So when I was in the garden pulling weeds a few weeks back...I noticed the neighbors livestock grazing in our direction. Normally it's cattle, but this time it was horses...and then I noticed the little donkey behind, and it seemed to be very curious about what I was doing.
So I walked over to the fence and called him over. He was hesitant at first, but curious and ultimately friendly...
He came over and let me scratch his forehead, behind his ears (he LOVED that) and his neck. In fact, he stuck around for the whole time I was out there...while the horses moved around, he stayed, grazing and staring at me...
...so I went back and gave him some more attention and I swear I thought he was going to fall asleep right there. He was a sweetie.
We don't know much about donkeys but they seem like fun and friendly animals to have around.
Who knows, maybe someday!
