Magic Moondust - Dusty
I am known as Dusty and I was the firstborn donkey foal, at Donkey Tales Farm Cottages.
I was a bit of a surprise, as I arrived 5 weeks before my due date! Marianne walked outside and there I was, complete in my birthsack, ready to be saved!
What a wonderful night everybody had, gazing upon me, taking more photos than you could imagine. I looked like I had dark brown stockings on all four legs and I was trully a beautiful sight. If I had been a girl, they were going to call me Pippy Longstockings!
The next day, I laid myself down for a nap as you will see in one of my photos, and Marianne saw me laid flat out and came running at full speed, thinking I had met an ufortunate end. But no, that is how I like to sleep and still do!
I am a very gentle boy, sweet natured and handsome, though I can be a bit clutzy at times. I have a habit of pulling at your clothes if you don't show me enough attention and I am one of the biggest donkeys here, but I'm also the biggest scaredy cat. If I hear you make a loud noise, or if you run at me, I will be the one who gets moving first in the opposite direction. I sometimes push in a bit for a cuddle. I was the first baby here, so it's only fair, in my opinion!
I have flirty eyes and if you look into them, you will be hooked under my spell forever ha ha! I got those from my Mum, Magic Skye. I'm a keeper :)
I can jump hurdles with ease, if and when I want to. Lately though I just step over them, one leg at a time. I'm so darned cute, I get away with it and make people laugh.
There is a great movie of me running around the big paddock when I first got out there. I had such a good time, I just couldn't stop running!!!
I'm friends with all the girls and I wouldn't have it any other way.
