We took some of our younger kiddos to do some photos yesterday under these huge old cottonwood trees with a cool old rope swing, and low and behold, this mama donkey and her baby were there when we got there getting a drink of water. They were super friendly and I would say the photography gods were smiling down on me as I got these unexpected images of my 2 youngest kids interacting with the donkeys. These are REAL photos, NOT composites.

I can honestly say I've never wandered across a couple of donkey's anywhere. Do you live in the Garden of Eden? This just blows my mind, awesome!

LOL Thank you! We live in NW Arizona. I believe these sweet donkeys are some of the donkeys that wander the streets of Oatman, as we were shooting sort of near there. I believe they were at this location getting a drink of water when we drove up. :)

Really nice!

Where we live (Central Florida), it's common to find a Donkey or two out in a big field to ward off Coyotes from other live stock.

Very best,

Those are fantastic. The only time we've encountered wild donkeys was when I almost hit some of them in the RV. :oops:

Those are some pretty clean looking donkeys lol. The Mrs. and I probably would never get close to any of the donkeys we see here in TX. Nice shots BTW!!

Very best,

In Georgia, they use goats for that. Maybe they're cheaper than donkeys.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
