December's delightful donkeys

The last time James went to Longhopes, he had trouble making friends with the donkeys.  He was worried that would happen again...
but fortunately... 
that was not the case.
This time, the donkeys greeted him like a long lost friend. 
In fact, he was so popular...
the donkeys stood in line...
for his attention!
Donkey love.
And who wouldn't love this face?
Or this one?
I didn't have a favorite this time, but James fell in love with a mini named Melody who has some neurological issues with her hind legs. 
She was a little skittish at first... 
but James was patient.  Before long, they were also friends.
We also spent time with seven week old Mahogany (Mo), 
six month old Eden,  
fat, funny Nacho, 
Longhopes Donkey Shelter is truly one of my favorite places.
James and I had a wonderful time at the December Donkey Delight.  We're both looking forward to next year's edition.
