Donkeys in general don't respect personal space. Miniature donkeys specifically have absolutely no grasp on boundaries. And our baby mini, Jasmine, (By the way - we didn't name these guys. Just sayin') has a tendency to really get all up in your face and stare. It can, at times, be a bit awkward.
Jer is clearly not totally comfortable with this situation.
Note: While we do love America as much as the next guy, Jer's hat isn't really a special tribute as much as a cheap gas station purchase years ago on the way to tube a local river. Makes a good land hat, too.
