Back from the donkey farm ...

This is the same place we went to 3 weeks ago. They still have their 3+1 (mommy is pregnant) alpacas and he has reduced his price. I am just not sold on these alpacas. They seem like a little more work than the donkeys. With that being said, these donkeys are just soooo cute!!! They came right up to us and let us pet them. Not all of them at once but a few of them did. They love attention from what i can tell. He has actually sold 12 of the mini donkeys since we were there a few weeks ago but he still has plenty left. We spent 2 hours talking to him and him just going over everything we need to know (at least we think EVERYTHING). I think we have narrowed it down to 4, 3 jennys which are females and 1 boy, which is a jack. All of the jennys are pregnant and some are due late summer, early fall. We just have to decide is this what we want and we need to get more fencing for our yard to fence them off from like walking down our driveway to greet us when we come home and stuff. We told the guy we would let him know by the weekend so stay tuned :).

How exciting Sherri. The mini donkeys are cute. I can't wait to hear what you decide to do.

so in other words, you would have just 4 donkeys for long, you would have lots of babies. Are you going to start selling them too or just become a donkey farmer? They look so cute, I want one.

my above comment should say "you wouldn't have 4 donkeys for very long"

I am staying tuned...would be cool to hear everything if you do purchase some! Might have to change your bog name to Flip Floppin' Donkey's! See if you could get one to stand on some flip flops for a photo op! LOL
