Silly Little Donkeys

I wish, I wish, I wish I had had a camera with me this morning.  Silly donkeys amused me yet again.
When I left the house to go to morning feed, we had a nice crusty layer of ice topping the recent snowfall.  Walking up the driveway was an effort; you had to actually lift your foot and plant it with a crunch to move through the snow.

When I arrived at the donkey gate three little donks were slowly moving toward me, (single file of course).  They stopped a few feet short (instead of rushing the gate bellowing for breakfast) and stood there all prissyfied lifting little feet off the ground, as though to say "this is icky, I don't like it".

They stood there with at least one foot off the ground until I announced I had cookies.  Well, that changed the whole situation in a flash.  Suddenly they were actually able to crunch down through the icy snow to stretch out necks and neatly attack the equine treats.

How could anyone resist their irresistible ways...
