Christmas Donkeys

We took a walk to the farm to see Joy, the donkey who was born exactly one year ago.


That’s Joy, the dark brown one one behind on the left. Lenny was asked to care for eight other donkeys temporarily. He needs to find homes for them because their owner died unexpectedly.


I don’t even know the name of this donkey, but she was very friendly, nibbling on my fingers (and the sketchbook) as I did her portrait. Handsome, the barn cat, curled up on my lap and swung his tail across the drawing.

Merry Christmas, Jim. I was guessing/hoping we'd get a first birthday update on Joy. Thanks for all you've shared with us this past year. It's a daily gift.

Merry Christmas Jim. Got your latest book for Christmas- wish I'd had it when I was at Uni. Beautiful, useful and very concise, thanks for all the effort you put in to this and the last one.
