Return of the Mini-Donkeys

If you have followed this blog at all, you know I enjoy stopping close to the Home Depot to allow Jasper to visit with the llamas.
Today he got a rare visit with the mini-donkeys. This was the first for 2011.  I'm not sure where they live when they aren't in this field, but they only seem to join the llamas for a few weeks before heading off to their winter homes.
As for the "mini", you can see how much smaller they are than a llama.  I would guess they are Jasper's height but a good bit thicker.The black one is a foal and what getting pushed in the butt by his mom whenever he slowed down.
Right across the street from the donkeys was a sign that summer is over.  The first batch of leaves are starting to turn.
