Badlands Hot Patootie (Cheeky)
Cheeky is a 2019 born standard donkey and a big personality around the farm.
Getting a donkey had always been on the bucket list, and then I ran into a man showing donkeys at the 2020 Koorawatha Show and we got talking about them. A few weeks later, I was out at his place picking one from the herd, and ended up with weanling jenny "Cheeky" - coincidentally the same donkey I had watched him show the day I'd met him.
She settled in very quickly and is so smart and willing. Although she is primarily a pet, she has been branded and registered with DABSA Inc. and while we get to enjoy the odd real show, she also did a few online shows during COVID-19 lockdown.
Cheeky attended the Cootamundra Donkey Show in June 2021. She was such a good girl as always.
She was also warmly welcomed at a few YAWBA all breeds shows during 2021.
And in 2022 she went to the DABSA Donkey National Show where we had a crack at everything and were ultimately awarded the Encouragement Award.
2023 saw us back at the DABSA Donkey National Show in Young NSW.
