Animal Wednesday - Donkey

I couldn't resist trying to draw this sweet little donkey that we saw while out birding this past weekend. I didn't get the colro right but I am pleased with the ears. It seems that every time I try to draw horses they end up looking like mules with ears too big for them. This set of ears looks about right for this donkey.
These small donkeys are being kept by several people in this area. They say they make great pets. They are sweet and not a lot of trouble. Most of the time you see them in pairs. They are very sensitive and need to be around their kind. We only saw one in this situation but it was with a herd of cows. A sight one doesn't see often. HAW to you all.

Great picture of the donkey. They are such extraordinary creatures and sometimes so mistreated.....
They are smart and survivors.
Lovely post HAW
