Going Half-Azzed

Have I mentioned the latest shiny in my life? No? Just look to the left. Right there. No, he's not one of mine, but his kind has been absorbing a great deal of my time.

Just this is the part where I blog about my ass. His name is Blackjack and he's an adorable, miniature donkey. He's also the foundation sire for Mossy Oaks Miniatures--even though he's only ten months old and doesn't know it yet. Soon, his future harem will arrive. Three prosepective young ladies are being evaluated at this moment.

My hubby and I have become smitten with these little guys and have been taking in Donkey and Mule shows. I love my horses and riding, but my back interferes with this more and more. I also love driving carts and let me just say that having one of these little guys wheel you around is more fun than ought to be legal.

Each donkey has his own bray, and I must be a smitten mommy because I think Blackjack has the most adorable sound. My youngest misunderstands his name and calls him Jack-Jack like the baby in The Incredibles. So Blackjack's registered name will actually be "Nameoforiginalbreeder's Jak-Jak Attack."

Yes, it's a sickness, but I love playing farmer. The only two animal breeding groups I belong to are the American Rabbit Breeders Association and the Southwestern Donkey and Mule Society.

I guess I'm all about the ears.

When I figure out how to load the pictures I took with my new camera that I'm too stupid to operate. :D


It's all about the ears.

I love donkies! Mules are great, but donkies just have that special sum'in sum'in. Could be the ears, I dunno.

I can't wait to see pictures of Jack-Jack :D

Too sweet. I'm looking forward to pictures! We run into them now and then down here, but I can't tell the difference between donkeys, mules and scrawny horses.

A farm near my house has a petting zoo with three donkeys. They all look like Eeyore and are very cute.

Kudos, however, for the best pun of the day! :)
