He was going to be a reindeer but once I drew that face I new he was a donkey. The farm up the road from me has about half a dozen donkeys they are all such characters, somehow solemn yet cheeky at the same time. And here is my favourite conversation I've ever had about donkeys:
Me - "What do cats say"
Small person - "Meoooow!" (With claw hand movements)
Me - "What do cows saw"
Small person - "Mooooo" (Pretends he has horns)
Me - "What do donkeys say"
Small person, without hesitation - "Donk! Donk! Donk!" (hands on hips, bending at knees with each donk)
