Paco is all harnessed up and ready to go, while Luigi insists on being "difficult"!
Paco watches while Luigi goofs off with the harness and lead rope.
So much more fun to PLAY with the harness than to wear it!
Paco tries to have a little chat with Luigi about wearing the harness.
Paco's proud stance. He looks good in his harness!
Part of the "donkey whisperer's" method is to just go and sit out with the donkeys and act like nothing is going on. Very casual. You can see Luigi standing sulking in the barn.
Finally, Luigi walks up with some interest to where the harness is.
"Uh, didn't I just had this farrier thing done 8 weeks ago? I really don't need to get that harness on AGAIN!"
The Weegie stare down.
These photos loaded out of order for some reason- but you can see that the foreman was successful- Weegie is in his harness!
Getting special attention before the dreaded clipping of the hooves.
The donkey whisperer at work. Paco (or at least his ears) watches.
If the farrier saw any of this stuff that went on before his arrival, he'd no doubt be rolling his eyes!
Time for a trim!
I don't blame the donkeys for not liking this. Look at that tool!
