On the way, we stopped by a horse farm, carrots in hand, ready to give a treat to the horses. Unfortunately, they were way over by the barn munching on a fresh load of hay.
They're all ready for autumn decorating. I purchased a few small pumpkins and squash for decorating our table.
Skip got a shot of me looking (wistfully?) at the sheep, a couple of fields away.
I assume they're raised for their meat.
After picking about 25 pounds of apples and paying, we started back to visit Jingles, a donkey that lives on a farm not too far from our home.
Along our route, we found a donkey farm with several donkeys in the paddock by the road. They came right over when we got out of the car.
They communicate with their ears. They seemed quite eager to get the snacks we brought.
This one let me pet his muzzle after taking the piece of carrot I offered her.
In the next field, the rest of the herd noticed us and wandered over to check us out.
Happily, though, we now know where we can visit other donkeys on our travels around the county.
Rest In Peace dear Jingles. You gave us lots of happy times as we drove past your farm and occasionally stopped to give you a carroty treat. I hope you are cavorting with other donkeys and having as many treats as you like. We will miss you.
