Donkey call

Derek, Bayleaf and TillySamanthaSweeting_Bayleaf_eye

Today I managed to record my first donkey bray. I was a little far away but I think it came from Bayleaf, the 15 year old miniature donkey on the farm.

The distinctive ee-aw is made because donkeys, unlike horses, are able to produce vocal sounds as they inhale, as well as when they exhale.


Animal Portraits

By way of introduction, I spent my first week photographing some of the residents on the farm, which include various rare breeds, such as the Golden Guernsey goats (Bentley pictured below).
