Last Friday the kids and I went to the MN Horse Expo at the State Fairgrounds in St. Paul.
We watched the Parade of Breeds. Dozens of different breeds, from the largest Shires to the tiniest Mini-horses.
We also toured the barns and met a delightful couple that breeds and raises Sicilian Miniature Donkeys. It turns out they live only a few miles from us. They have 15 donkeys currently, gorgeous little furry equines who don't even come up to my waist when they are full grown, and they are expecting 4-5 new babies this spring. This couple graciously invited us to come visit the babies.
I want a donkey. I want two donkeys so one would not be lonely. Think Peter will let me have one? These little darlings might have to be featured in a book.
