Lulu and Fanny have grown their winter coats. This morning I pressed my face into Fanny’s neck and gave her a nuzzle. She smelled like earth, cold air, and warm sunshine. That smell is the best aromatherapy I know.
It always settles my heart and puts a smile on my face.

Maria, the BEST smell.
Just got home from a visit with my mom and the best gift ever and I open your blog to see your donkeys!
My gift from my mom is a donkey named Elli that she sponsored in my name and gives me two 30 minute personal visits with Elli. I’m so excited! This is through a local charity and a ranch run by nuns called Cristo Rey Ranch.
It’s the closest I’ll ever have to a donkey of my own! Can’t wait to meet her when it gets warmer.
Oh Barbara, how lucky you are to have that wonderful gift and a mom who knows you so well. Makes me smile.
lucky you. i have wanted donkeys for a long time. not going to happen. they are super animals.
Ah, I hope you can at least enjoy getting to know Fanny and Lulu, Diane. They are wonderful animals as you say.
I love those two donkeys. My grandmother’s name was Fanny so maybe that plays a part in it.
When I look at them I see them smiling. You are so lucky to have them and to have the special relationship that you have with them.
Through you and Jon I have learned a lot about donkeys. Thank you.
Fanny was named after Jon’s Aunt Fanny, Jane. Those are some nice connections.
