My name is Nikki Schmitzer. I work full-time at a law firm in DC and love the escape from the corporate world to the peaceful farm in the country. My favorite animal at the farm is Dee Dee Donkey. She is an old lady with the perfect mix of sweet and feisty. Read more about Nikki
Dee Dee Donkey is a fat, feisty, sweet, spry little Miniature Sicilian donkey. We adopted her from Days End Farm Horse Rescue in 2002, partly to be a companion, and partly to be a guardian to the sheep and goats.
