Don and I took the day off from work yesterday to go to the New Mexico State Fair donkey show. We met some really nice donkeys and their people while we were there.

This is GW and his person Judy. Judy adopted GW from Longhopes Donkey Shelter in Colorado.

Here’s Judy’s jenny, Daisy decked out with her pack saddle:

After the competition, Don and I enjoyed walking around behind the scenes to meet everyone up close and personal. Here’s one of the handsome Severs mules:

Who has a heart-shaped spot on her behind:

When we stopped to visit with Judy and GW, the little jenny named Patience caught my eye. When I started telling her how pretty she was, she literally started posing for me:

Really, seriously posing:
