Baby Donkey

My niece takes riding lessons on some weekends at a barn nearby, and one of the donkeys there just had a baby. We visited today and snapped a few pictures. She’s really cute and very friendly, wanting constant attention. Her name is Stevie Nicks (her Dad is Steve and her Mom is Sage). They have a shepherd dog that was the first to notice the new baby donkey and he stood guard over her until humans arrived.

It was a beautiful sunny day today that really hit the spot. I’m testing the summer scent, and now that I increased the floral notes it has gone a tad sweeter. I decreased both vanilla absolute and benzoin, which helped, but I may need to do something further. It’s getting so close though. I’m also working on the other summer scent and that’s close to having the next tester as well.

    Oh so adorable! I drive by a little corral on the way to my son’s preschool each morning. There’s a horse, a mule, and 2 donkeys and we always slow down for a look to see if they were out. Babies are even cuter!
