The violin-loving donkey
As soon as rancher Alicia Shueler starts to score the bow across the violin's strings, her donkey, who goes by the name of Donkeyotee, begins to show off its vocal skills.
Since it was uploaded to the video-sharing website, the video has been viewed a massive 210,032 times.
It has been such a hit that one YouTube user by the name of Azdana commented: "Donkeyotee sounds better than some of the performers on the Grammy show!"
"I had no idea how our donkey would react beforehand," said Ms Shueler on her YouTube page.
"I bought Donkeyotee when he was a starving four and a half month old colt who had been errantly weaned at two and half months of age. He is eight years old now and very healthy."
The name of the donkey is a play on the name Don Quixote, which is the title of the classic novel by Miguel de Cervantes.
Don Quixote these days is used to describe idealists, romantics and mavericks.
