A Very LOUD Post for Fences!

Well, you’ll have to take my word for it and imagine the LOUD part of this post.

I’m not exactly a country girl. I grew up in a small town and we had a garden and my Grandmother had chickens. But I had NO idea a donkey could BRAY as loud as this one did!

He went on and on and on!

hee haw hee haw hee

Hubby got out and walked over to pet him.

Yes they can be good used as a guard. You certainly would always here them. All great shots of the lovely white donkey.

Hello Diane, I wish I could have been there to hear this donkey. They are so cute, I love the donkeys! Great photos and fence scenes. Enjoy your day!

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

What a cute post! Looks like this one was calling for attention and enjoyed your husband's visit! Hee haw hee haw!! Love it!

Diane said...

Cute! I bet the "talking" was loud!

September Violets said...

Clearly he was calling to the right person ;) Often people will have a donkey just for their noisy qualities in case there are foxes or coyotes prowling around. They're the barnyard first alert alarm! I've not seen a white donkey before, he's cute!

Linda Kay said...

Very funny....and they do make a lot of noise!

Connie said...

It looks like your husband knew just what he wanted . . . a little scratch behind the ear and a little human contact. Sometimes the very same thing makes me feel better, LOL.

Christine said...

A very comical donkey and what a fun picture of him braying! i don't see many white donkeys but we do have a grey one across from us and he loves to start braying at bedtime! So I know how loud they are!

Susie said...

Diane, I love this post...your husband must have found where the donkey's ear was itching.:):) Funny little things donkeys. It's like they want your attention. The neighbor used to keep a donkey in with the sheep...to keep coyotes away. But the donkey would carry on and some times chance the sheep....being a city slicker, I was amused watching them. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
p.s. hello to your donkey whisperer.

Vee said...

And a friendly one! Your hubby really is a donkey whisperer. =D

You always have the best adventures with your Donkey Whisperer!

Jeannie Marie said...

I don't think I've ever seen a white burro before! He wanted company!

Pamela Gordon said...

That is so fun! Great pics of this donkey braying. Maybe he was wanting some attention from your husband. Have a great day.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

They can be really loud, he obviously wanted some attention and got it! Great pics!

hugs,

They are very loud I have to agree LOL. Have a good day Diane

This is a sweet donkey, and a special one because he's WHITE! I've never seen a white donkey before. These are wonderful pictures today, Diane.

love, ~Sheri

Kimberly~Nutbrown Cottage said...

Awwww, that's a pretty donkey! My mom has donkeys and they ARE noisy! That's so sweet that your hubby gave him some attention. Probably made both their days!

Thammie TheDollMaker said...

What a beautiful white donkey!

Ida said...

One can just imagine the (braying) that donkey is doing in that first shot. It's like he's trying to get your attention. Your "donkey whisperer" seems to have calmed him down. - The fence made for good protection from the donkey getting out.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Funny!!

Jeanne said...

Well, It looks like he/she just wanted attention.

TexWisGirl said...

we have one that lives in the woods behind us - much like this one, he's a white little donkey - and VERY LOUD BRAY! :)

Margaret said...

He just wanted to say HI! Maggie

Kathy said...

You put a smile on my face and I really needed one today. Thanks for the pictures of your loud fence and the pretty donkey too.

Felicia said...

cute post. He does look like he was pretty loud.

Dewena said...

He was pretty too, as well as loud! I never knew that hens could be so loud until we got our 3 last summer, but when we sit down out back in the evening to talk about our day, they come up to join in the conversation and drown us both out!

Rose said...

They are loud! This made me smile!

Chip Butter said...

Truthfully, can you think about this sweet, but loud, donkey without smiling. Donkeys make me happy. My sister has no telling how many, of all colors and sizes, so my visits with her are happy ones. But, then they would be, wouldn't they, donkeys or not!

sandy said...

After seeing those nostrils I can image it was loud!! LOL Not sure I've even seen a white donkey before. Very cool.

Linda Walker said...

I love donkeys! (and any animal actually!!!) I have never seen a white donkey though. YES they can be very loud! Did he tell your husband any secrets??? LOL, great photos!
Linda

Kathy said...

Love this one! I had a pet donkey when I was little and oh.my.yes. they can make some noise!

doodles n daydreams said...

Vicky Weaver said...

Arlene said...

Oh yes, they can be quite loud and quite annoying when you have to listen to it all day.lol

Carla from The River said...

LOL - you are so much fun.
I must say he is a pretty donkey.

Maggie Ann said...

I don't like to hear them....& they remind me of Pinnochio??? sorry about that spelling! Hope your day is cooling off as ours is. Time for me to feed our Kitty Cat =)

cynthia lee designs said...

Don't think I've ever since a white donkey before now. I think he was wanting some attention!!

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Great post - great photos. I don't see many white ones around here.

Oh, and I love your header!!!!!

Boopnut said...

Oh, is that what we have to do to get attention? Bray loudly? Cute post.

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams said...

Montanagirl said...

I've never see a pure white donkey! Very pretty. I'm back, still adjusting to my eye trouble, but I'm trying to catch up on a few blogs!!

Jen @ The Light Laughed said...

I've seen a lot of donkeys, but never a white one, what a cutie. They are rather noisy little creatures always remind me of Bootsie at feeding time.

Great shots Diane, and you husband was a good sport...a little to the left sweetie...now face me, that's right...click.

Jen

Mimi said...

I love it! Donkeys can definitely be the watchdogs of the farmyard. Maybe he just thinks he's a "people whisperer"...and a very loud one at that! Wonderful pictures!

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

He's a cutie (and I'm talking about the donkey and your hubby ☺)

helen tilston said...

Have a great week
