A gorgeous donkey named Harriet can hit higher notes better than you... we guarantee! This lovely ass will put a smile on your face.
An Irish singing donkey named Harriet captured the hearts of people all around the Internet back in 2018, and when we stumbled across this it gave us the giggles!
Irish man Martin Stanton helped usher Harriet to fame after he posted a video of the Irish singing donkey to Facebook in October 2018 which went on to rack up more than one million views.
In his original post, Stanton said: “I visited the beautiful Harriet today (Sunday October 21) She could never hee haw like other donkeys but apparently she's now an opera singer!!”
Stanton's video instantly went viral around the world - Not bad for a donkey from Connemara!
Speaking with ABC News Stanton said, “She [Harriet] lives about 20 minutes away from me in Toureen, Connemara.”
“I know the family who owns her and I bring carrots, bread, and ginger nut biscuits. She never hew-haws like other donkeys.”
Stanton noted that he originally called Harriet Harrison before realizing the donkey was indeed a female.
“I try to visit whenever I can because she is adorable, so friendly, and gentle. I found the video funny so I just posted it. I didn't think it would go viral.”
