I am really starting to enjoy these half asses!  They sure are cute (not as cute as my little Kate was at that age) but, yes, cute.  Those tiny ears are adorable, and certainly helps their appearance over their short eared mama's. Poor horses are so horribly deformed looking to me.  They just can not possibly hear as well as we donkeys do.  I wonder if horses get the same body temperature adjustments we do out of our majestic ears?  Hmmm probably not.   We are fortunate to have our ears, which are so functional.  They cool us, and allow us to hear our cousins who may be miles away.  Well, enough of my rambling, here are some photos of our newest addition to our ranch.  Sergeant Robert makes his debut!
