Donkey duet an Internet sensation

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, FL (CNN/WTLV) – There's some singing going on at a farm in Florida, and it has nothing to do with Old MacDonald.

Just a donkey showing off his vocal skills and his talent is getting noticed on YouTube.

Moonlit Oaks Ranch owner Alicia Shueler had recently taken an interest in playing music, playing the violin and viola, and thought her animals would make for a friendly audience while practicing.

"I was really just goofing off," said Shueler.

She started by playing for her cows, and while they just ignored her, Donkeyotee called from across the farm.

Donkeyotee, a donkey she found abandoned and starved several years ago, and apparently he's the perfect violin practice partner.

"I thought, ‘Well, maybe I might get one hee haw out of him, but it might be kind of funny and I'll play it for my family and friends, you know.' And he kept going." Said Shueler.

Thinking she'd share her playing with family, Shueler brought a video camera along to her practice.

She eventually posted her Donkey Duet on YouTube for her family, but 87,000 hits later, the reserved rancher has been bucked to center stage by her donkey.

"I really didn't think I'd be playing it in front of that many people," said Shueler.

Currently the video, "Duet with Donkeyotee" had more than 200,000 views.
