yes! i just finished up a donkey i had in mind for a while, and it came from listening to "dominic the christmas donkey" such a hilarious song youtube it! Smiley but recently i got into the 'kick' (harharhar) and just did it. upon losing my grandfather on mothers day i figured it was a tribute to him Smiley he was always "stubborn as a mule" what else would you get living with a retired navy major haha. he fought us all the way but im so glad to have had him in my life he made and molded me into the person i am today and i wouldn't go back n change a thing just that i wish i got to say goodbye for the last time. Sad

anyway, this little guy is pretty big about 1 foot give or take. stuffed to the gills with polyfil and those little plastic beads which i got paranoid about finding them everwhere, so i sewed them up into little pouches and stuffed them in. haha. he took about a week to accomplish and his weave that was beyond fun! so now i have more in the works because everyone keeps trying to steal him. im still deciding on the eyes as i dont really think they fit him. thank you for looking!

and one more because his horseshoes are so darn cute!

Sorry for your loss.  My grandfather (Jellybelly what I called him) was my best friend.  Everyone says I am just like him..  Good..  

I love your donkey.  He is awesome.  I have ideas trapped in my head but don't know how to create them in crochet.  The horseshoes are adorable.  

I'm in love with Donkey form Shrek....

Soooo cute. You could easily turn him into a political donkey and make him and elephant friend to run against, lol. I'm a geek, i know.

*jiggaddy-jig hee-haw hee-haw*

In the UK there's a radio station who play that song every day for about 3 weeks leading up to Christmas, and now I have it stuck in my head again!

He's adorable! What were you thinking of changing about his eyes?
