After the meeting I got my things out of the office and we had a quick chat about the "road trip" next Saturday. Looks like three of us going and two donkeys, we are taking Paco and Trooper. It will be there trial run too for the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, I believe in November. Both of them have been training hard walking and being more cooperative, but with a donkey you just never know lol. Also works are going on for next Donkey Day already, and lots of ideas are floating around and lots of work needs to be done for that again.
After all this chit chatting I finally went back down to the barn to do some chores and hang out with the donkeys. Helia and I cleaned the dark side hill and made it safer for the donkeys to walk down again. I picked the barnyard and got side tracked by giving Solo a belly rub. Oh my, once you start you can't stop, he will stalk you every step you take away from him. It's funny, he gets like most donkeys get when you rub their ears, his ears go back, he stretches out his neck and his bottom lip just goes a mile a minute, sometimes he looks like he is not able to take it anymore, just too much pleasure...but watch out when you stop...lol. I spent some time with Orly and the other donkeys out on the special needs side. As I was leaving I was kind of stuck by the garden paddock watching Buffy, Juno and Orly. Buffy seemed to be in a better mood as early in the morning and was actually a little goof ball, well all of them were, I tried to take some pictures but this is what I could come up with...they just wouldn't stay away.
