Check Out That Ass!

Look what wandered into our front yard!
A cute little burro standing there 
by the dry riverbed 
We named him Mojave, meaning "by the river".
What's neat is he looks like he's made of terra cotta,
but that's just paint, he's actually solid concrete 
and as heavy as an elephant.
We found him at our local outdoor 
garden statuary store "Little Baja".
We were looking for a giant tortoise sculpture
till we stumbled upon this little guy.
Since we have wild burros running around 
the desert on the outskirts of town, 
we thought he would look
right at home in our yard.
So here he stands, his job is to greet visitors and 
scare the birds away from our berry bush.
Thanks for stopping by and
happy hunting!

Very cute! I love shopping for concrete statues...I'd love a giant turtle myself! I bought a st. francis not long ago. Hope things are good with you. I'm busy working and not much else.
