The most photographed burros and donkeys on earth...

...and that was just in one day! Seriously, if you had been at the 7MSN yesterday, all you would have heard was the whirring of cameras. Bernard and Ellsworth from Morning Bray Farm came over for a play date, and their mom and I took an obscene number of pictures and videos, probably enough to fill up this blog all week.

Bernard had been over to play once before, but this was Ellsworth's first visit. 
The introductions were completely uneventful, and everybody got along famously all day...


...despite what you may think from photos like these. 


The kicks are just for show – really! 
Donkey play is not a full-contact sport, at least where this group is concerned.


Hank stood around with the two-leggeds most of the time, watching the show...


and looking exceptionally handsome. He rises to the occasion in the face of stiff competition.




What was Miss Lucy doing while all the boys were showing off? 
Getting ready for her close-up...which I'll show you tomorrow.

  4. How lovely to have long eared visitors to 7MSN. All looked very happy to have play mates. And I bet you and their Momma had a super visit.

  5. That's very cute; like a donkey day care center at your place. They all looked like they were enjoying the day. Hank looks gorgeous as the activities director.

  6. Wow, all four (five?)burros went over to visit you and your family with their maw and paw and, for sure, they all got a kick out of it and enjoyed every minute during their visit with you all.

  7. My mistake, it was just two of them; Ellsworth and Bernard and the rest stayed home...Betcha that they were on Cloud 9!

    We had a wonderful day - it was perfect, as always. It's still so surreal to see B&E in photos at 7MSN.
