We have some friends who live on a farm. (I've written about the farm before... you can find it here.) A few weeks ago we received an invitation to come out and see the newest addition to the "farm family"... a baby donkey.
Now, I don't know about you, but I had never seen a baby donkey before. I had no idea what to expect.
We knew before we went out that there wouldn't be anyone available to "take us out to see the baby" and we would be on our own. Here's what I DIDN'T know.
Brandon would be taking us out to find the baby on this...
You are probably thinking the same thing that I was thinking...
1. Does he know how to drive a 4-wheeler?
2. WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE JENNIFER AND THE GIRLS GOING TO SIT?!?!?!?
Answer #1... yes and no. :) He had a general idea of how to make it go and he played around with it before the girls and I got on.
Answer #2... you see that VERY small metal "rack" just behind Brandon? That's where we sat!
We did manage to make it out to the donkeys. No there was NOT a trail and we just went bounding blindly into the tall grass. We hit MORE than a few gigantic holes!
Here we are with the baby...
I think this photo was just a few minutes before Brandon attempted to feed the father a snack. How did the mother react? She pushed him away so she could eat and then SHE KICKED HIM IN THE CHEST WITH BOTH OF HER BACK HOOFS!!!
That made me even more nervous... I couldn't really see myself successfully defending my children from an irritated donkey!
Chandler was flat out scared at that point. She had been excited up until then. When the mother unleashed her wrath Chandler calmly said, "I'm going to wait on the 4-wheeler."
I didn't blame her one bit... Riley was anxious to get down and run around so we decided it was time to head back.
Chandler's favorite part of the day...
