While I was cleaning out the barn, pasture & automatic waterers this evening, the donkeys played. They like to observe and "help" me at first but then always end up running circles (literally) around me! They're espeically playful after they've had their sweet grain...the old saying "feeling your oats" definitely came from somebody watching donkeys or horses after eating oats! It is so great to be around happy donkeys...and tonight they were especially silly!
They really do play rough - you don't want to get caught in the middle!
I still have to do a full-pasture clean-up. It takes forever!
Weegie got a little tired watching me scoop up manure, so he rested for a while on Paco.
This is the prelude to sweet grain time- playing around with the empty pan!
Two sides of a donkey.
It is funny how often they "check in" with one another. This goes on all day long.
Being silly while waiting for the arrival of the sweet grain!
I finally had to stop what I was doing and fill the pan.
"Checking in" again!
The lip curl is one of the funniest things the donkeys do- it always makes me laugh out loud!
