Donkey Scoundrels

Its a regular dance the donkeys and I perform.  Daily.  Sometimes multiple times a day.
I walk into the hay aisle and usually Gabariella walks in right behind me.  I turn around with hay in hand to walk out and throw in the donkey yard, and yes, there's a donkey in my way.

On the occasion of the photo above, Luigi determined it was an oh most opportune time to bang around the metal garbage can holding donkey grain.  He has become quite clever at removing the bungee-corded lid.

  He knocked it down and was working on the lid, all within a matter of a minute or two.
This necessitated a quick push past Gabby (not an easy task -- she's a donkey after all--  who can easily choose to firmly plant four feet), quickly enough to stop the lid from coming off, the grain spilling to the ground and Luigi and Gabby gorging themselves and potentially becoming quite ill.

Yes, these are good times on our little farm.  Scoundrels is the polite word for the two equine devils.


  1. They really keep you on your toes!

  2. I bet they are wonderful times on your little farm. To go out and be greeted (and messed about with) by those two gorgeous guys each day must indeed be exceptionally wonderful. It's hard to feel sad and down when you keep animals - you can always rely on them to do something to cheer you up.

    1. Oh Louise, I'm not up to your standards. :) There have been many a'morning (in the past 7 years) that those little cute faces annoy the heck out of me. But then there are the many many moments of which you speak.
