Partee !!

OK, so I walk into the shed this morning to retrieve breakfast hay, and  !!!!
The only thing I can imagine from the big overnight mess is that the donks invited some friends over and things got a bit crazy.  Not to be indelicate, but I'm talkin' poop -- and lot's of it.  Everywhere...

Now come on!  I'm the one to clean up the mess and I wasn't even invited!

Little Destructive Beasts

Because we're closing in on fall, well I guess we're already there, the pasture is a bit sparse.  So today I let the donks out into the driveway grass (with a chaperone of course) and then into the house area, aka "the compound".  Yes, fully fenced.  Alas, look what the little beasts did to my mum.  Yikes.

Not totally decimated,
but a closer haircut than I'd like.

On a side note, I continue to be intrigued with Luigi's role in the herd.  Ever ever  vigilant.
A couple of days ago I heard a noise next door.  Someone was talking loudly.  Thats it.  Nothing earth shattering.  But it was enough to make Luigi stop eating hay and walk over to investigate the noise. The girls, on the other hand, did not stop munching.  

He clearly has a hard-wired directive to protect.  Fascinating.
