NORMA JEAN RECEIVED A PACKAGE! Do you read picture books to little children?! Check out DONKEY DONK! (Donkeys are the BEST)!






Norma Jean received a package a while back – during the time that Dodger passed away… so she wasn’t able to read them, until now.

WHAT A GREAT IDEA!

I think it would be great to teach little ones about the value of wonderful donkeys…  What better way than an easy to follow, engaging, picture book about a real-life donkey!

Meet Donkey Donk!  (Yes, I am partial to donkeys.  I have two – Norma Jean and Mo – and they are incredible beings… so smart, so emotional and so giving.  Donkeys are wonderful.

And, you will be able to see how wonderful donkeys are because the author, Ellen F. Feld, who owns Donkey Donk,  is able to dress her in all kinds of outfits, have her do all kinds of tricks, and takes her to all kinds of places!

THE BOOKS.

There are three Donkey Donk books.  (I’m sure Feld loves creating these!).

What can I do?       Horse Show!      and Take a Hike!

All of the books are real photography of the real donkey, Donkey Donk (they live on a Morgan Horse farm, which I love, of course!).  The photos are engaging, the print is big and pretty, and the learning messages are simple and true.

WHAT CAN I DO?

This book is about the poor little Donkey Donk who is growing up on a fancy horse show farm and wonders what she can do as well as all of the big show horses.

The first book from 2018. All real photos with a sweet message of a little donkey living on a show horse farm. Click image to go to the Amazon page

I could not imagine doing this with either of my donkeys. Wow! Great job!

HOW CAN YOU PURCHASE THESE BOOKS?

All of the above titles have links to their Amazon page.  However, I noticed that you can get a ‘signed copy’ (by Donk or Feld, not sure…) by contacting willowbendpublishing.com.

A beautiful photo for Mother’s Day.






I found this photo and I thought it was beautiful.  You never know who will fill the role of Mama – when you don’t have one of your own.

Here is the story associated with this photo.

This brings back memories! This photo was taken the day that Esmé met her dear friend Millie (or Mielie, as she is now known as). Millie is a Thaba Manzi Pedi Lamb, much like Lammie, whom many have grown to love and adore over the past years. These pedi sheep have a wonderfully maternal instinct, and are very protective and caring towards those that they form close bonds with. In essence, they become like a surrogate mother. Over the years we have seen great success in encouraging bonds between some of the orphaned animals in our care, and this breed of sheep.
