What is a steam donkey?

A Writer's Playground Fotosearch_u17996074“What is a steam donkey?” by Linda Martin Andersen and inspired by Tim Livingston’s blog.

Do you love nature?  Forests?  History?  Photography?  Art? Education?  Preservation?  A steam donkey?

Yes, a steam donkey!

Do you know what a steam donkey is?  Is it a donkey letting off steam?

Not a chance.  But here’s your chance to learn what it is.

Tim Livingston’s got a story to share, photography, and artwork too.  I hope you’ll follow his blog so you can catch each segment of the steam donkey story.

In February, there’s a Forestry Education Fundraising Auction.  Try saying that ten times fast.  After a while, you’ll sound like you’re rolling along on steam.  Tim’s a part of this event too.

Do you want to learn more?

All followers shout:  Yes, we do! Steam donkey, steam donkey, steam donkey now!

Take it away, Tim Livingston.

  1. Thank you for the shout out Linda! 🙂 I love the name “steam donkey.” The old time lumberjacks had a knack for naming things. Hmmm…I think there is a blog post in there.

    • Tim,
      You’re very welcome for the shout out! I love passing along great teaching blogs! I hope you do decide to write a post about lumberjacks naming things in their world. Maybe you could write a lumberjack book of names. How about a picture book? You could do it.

  2. Well, now I’ve met a steam donkey. How interesting!

    Linda, I had no idea about steam donkeys-so cool! Perhaps one of the early inspirations for steam punk 🙂

    • Hi Kathy,
      I also wondered if any steam punk might be based on steam donkeys. Thanks so much for taking time to comment. Tim Livingston puts out some great posts, doesn’t he? He is a great forest artist and teacher.

  4. Hi Linda, I’ll have to check out what a steam donkey is at Tim’s blog. I thought it might be a donkey blowing off steam. LOL

  5. Tracy,
    I told you, you’re fun!

    Just now read about the steam donkey–would love to see one. Be careful today. Our road is a sheet of ice. Love you, M
