We went out to the barn house yesterday and let the boys catch frogs and ride dirt bikes.
I was cutting through a small pasture where we let our neighbor keep their Mammoth Jack Donkey when Jim was cracking up at how the Donkey wont leave me alone.
He pushes, nibbles on and follows everywhere. The pictures of him close up are me trying to get a picture but he wont stand away from me to get one.
Growing up around animals and having horses I find this funny because I have NEVER fed him or even brought him an apple. The owners are trying to break him to ride and train and treats for nothing are confusing so all I ever do is say hello and talk sweet to him.
I am beginning to think he is trying to mug me and cannot imagine someone would not bring him a treat.
I did get a kick out of Jim taking my camera because he was laughing so hard at Buckwheat acting like our dog, who would prefer I carry her 50 pounds around in my purse. I have to turn around and tell Buckwheat to stop because he pushes me to walk with him. Also, donkeys are coyote killers which is why I don’t have our dog with me. They will stomp on their heads if they try and attack them. Our pup gets sent into the barn if I am out by a pasture buckwheat is in.
