Hey Donkey – What’s Going On?

Andy Samberg on SNL imitating Mark Walberg talking to animals has been one of my favorite sketches for a long time. It’s just so silly, you can’t help but laugh. From time-to-time, when I’m around my farm animals I, too, like to have little...

Our Homesteading Journey
