I had great fun when we got to go out and play with the donkeys. Before we got started tho, I of course needed Donkey Safety 101. Which was very helpful to me since this is the first time I have ever been around a donkey. Never allow myself to get in between 2 donks, if they get a little pushy with the treats then just gently push them away...show them who is in charge, if for some reason they suddenly feel inclined to run after me....then I am to run. Okay, got it. Run.
It was all fine tho. I only managed to get my foot stepped on once. And clearly, that was my own fault. My foot was evidently right where Brownie wanted to place his. So, a few sore toes. Nothing tragic. They really are so very sweet. Its just very relaxing and calming to be out there with them. Lovin on em, scratching those great big ears. Whats not to like about that, right?
We had to get the jolly ball out. How can I NOT see the donks play with the jolly ball? It was so funny to watch them. Pistol was for sure in charge of the ball. Every once in a while he would offer it up to the other guys. Mostly tho in the form of nudging them with it or sorta swinging it in front of their faces. Almost like he had the great idea to share and then after a minute he decided, ummm, actually no...I dont think I would like to share right now.
But, as you can see it wasnt just the donks that were having a great time....Im pretty sure Danni was having fun, too.
