The donkeys both got new britchens made for everyday use and a new set for their events, both made by me. I wasn't happy with the last set, so they both got upgraded. Huge improvement was going to a larger ring on Daisys pack saddle, tightening up the latigo is SO much easier.
We are looking for a local beer vendor to be included in our upcoming photoshoot! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered!
Are you a floral designer? Would you like to make the donkeys a crown?

Good morning, I wanted to share that there is a new blog for my art creations like my stamps, drawings, non donk related photography etc, potential artist collaborations! (coming soon!!). I'll also be posting current sewing projects. Check it out HERE. I decided to split this up from the burros, so people who come to read about the burro adventures are not stuck reading about something I made.
Well, it's been a year hasn't it?.... We're definitely still attempting to get back to normal, if that exists anymore...
The donkeys are getting back into shape, they have had quite a lazy summer. They only attended two wedding events, went on maybe ONE hike.....basically they're living the life of great accommodations, lots of love and just being amazingly cute...and treats, lots of good hay and treats.
I have been ramping up my art production in my 'spare' time aka, not working my day job. There are new Elk Pins in the Etsy shop HERE. My artist friend AnnRann made some pins and I loved them and had to make my own.
Ugh, I love them so much. I want to send them to all my friends...
If you'd like one of these bad boys, I will be selling them in person, along with my other wares - tea towels, cards etc...sorry donkeys won't be there, wouldn't that be great!?!
There will also be live music from Peter King and Bodhi Farms fresh produce for sale (basil, kale, spinach, broccoli, peppers, summer squash & more). I am hoping that I can be a regular there, but the date may interfere with my job...(sad face).
We gave away one of these pins over on Instagram, used a really cool new tool to pick a winner... I legit was using paper and a hat before haha!
Now the internet helps.....
Rocky is getting a little tack upgrade, I have not made tack in forever and I'm starting to get back into it. If you'd like to see donkey tack available for sale, leave a comment! Let me know!
a nice set of romel reins in tan paracord, making the 'romel' bit of them today, will get some photos when finished.
New hand carved stamp design.
Stickers and other merch available on RedBubble
I've officially ran out of elastic, I have just a bit of cotton left. There is more on the way, and I'm hoping it won't be delayed too long.
Hand printed some tea towels while waiting on next batch of mask fabric. Really love how these turned out!
And the next batch of masks is on deck :)
Here to share all my donkey related adventures....why? Because they're basically the best thing ever.
