I’ve had Norma Jean (my brown donkey) for 23 years.
She is kind and gentle, but I wouldn’t call her affectionate.
Sure, she’ll come over for treats or scratches, but she doesn’t openly show her affection. BG is like that, too. Very reserved.
OK, so… I was taken aback when Mo’s donkanality started to shine through. At first when he came to live here, he was scared and standoffish.
But now…he is up in my grill every chance he gets! Always. To him, me coming into the paddock is an invitation to move into my personal space and ask for pets.
I’m not complaining…
I just think it is fun and funny. And, sometimes annoying, but mostly fun!
Here he is with me and my impossible barnie skills (a barnie is a selfie taken with your barn animal).
HERE WE GO!
EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A DONKEY.
I know I’ve said that before, but it is true.
