I have several animals who love to have their ears and neck scratched. I focused on the dogs, even though the donkeys love it to. Maria took this photo of me scratching but, I took the others, one of Zinnia, and one of the huggable Zip.
Zinnia is always a sweetheart, Bud is most often a hellion, Zip can be sweet and dominant, all at the same time. I love taking portraits of animals, their faces have so much character. I’ll get the donkeys during the week. The chickens definitely do not like to have their necks scratched.
