this is one of my favourite farm animals, smudge the donkey.
two donkeys live here, the other one's name is sergeant. sergeant and smudge came from the local doneky sanctuary and are best friends. they don't go anywhere without each other. they spend their days in the chicken and sheep pasture standing guard while they  protect and defend. 
and might i add that they take their job very seriously. donkeys might seem rather... useless but on the contrary, donkeys throw one effective hee-hawing fit when coyote danger approaches.
smudge is a miniature donkey, which is a large part of my affection towards him. i relate to smudge. he's little but he's a force to be reckoned with. at first glance you might not expect much of smudge other than a good snuggly hug - but oh no. smudge is full of admirable character.

my ode... to smudge.
