The eyes have it

When Justina visited in April, she proclaimed George's eyes the most beautiful
she's ever seen on a donkey. I had to agree. We both promised 
not to share this opinion with any of the other donkeys we know.

There's something unique about their soft brown color...

...and the way they reflect the light.

Add a slight tilt of the head and I melt.

Then, when the nostrils open as wide as the eyes, it's a wonder 
I can take a picture, so overwhelmed am I by the cuteness.

George's eyes convey his thoughts,
so it's usually pretty easy to understand what he's saying,
(and to write captions for his pictures).

"I know you're hiding in the box. The question is, why?"


  1. I think the eye liner helps set his eyes off so nicely!

  2. They match that pretty brown edging his black markings...I agree
    Those flaring nostrils are the best, irresistible!

  3. They make my heart melt too.

  4. I agree with all you say. What I find specially special about Georges'eyes though is their deep tenderness

  5. Those would be soulful brown eyes. Yup.
