A Special Saturday Treat for Phantom



Mom was just about to turn around and take me home today because she thought I was telling her I really didn't want to go for a walk.  I was walking very slowly and didn't seem to have much energy.  BUT then look who I saw.


This is my donkey pal that I haven't seen since last fall.  The three donkeys don't come out in the front pasture much in the winter, so this was a special treat.




The brother over on the right keeps his distance, but this one likes to come eye to eye with me.  



I wonder if the grass really is greener tastier on the other side of the fence.  For some reason Mom says I will just have to keep wondering about that.




Mom wants to think we were kissing here, but we were really just saying how happy we were to meet up again. 

I may not have gone very far, but I would say I really enjoyed my walk today:)  I wonder if they know my pals Joe and Smokes from Marg's Animals.

Woos - Phantom

Hey Phantom:

How great you have a neighborhood donkey or two to visit with. They will love that fresh green grass of spring! Do you eat a little grass in the spring? I love it and its good for us all, I think.

Kisses,
Your pal,
Stella

OH BUDDY.... what a FABULOUS Walkie. We are SO glad that you got to see and sniff your donkey furends... We had not heard much about them in AGES. Glad that they wintered well.

Hi Phantom, what a great walking treat that was to meet up with your donkey friend, it looks like you were both really happy to see each other, you sure do look happy! I have donkeys that like by me and I like to see them too, they are really friendly but Mum says I'm not allowed to go in and taste the grass with them on their side either, spoil sports! Have a great day, love your woo Frank XxxxxxxxX

What a nice surprise for you Phantom! It always good to see something interesting on a walk, especially if it makes you forget for while how tired you is. Mum likes to pick some grass from our side of the fence if we sees horses or donkeys. Just do they get a little taste of life on the other side. BOL!
~lickies, Ludo!
Thanks for your Mom's kind words on my blog.

I think the grass is definitely greener on the other side of the fence :o) It's great that you like Mr. Donkey. I have two donkey-neighbors too ( real donkeys with 4 legs, not with two) and I always run away when they start their braying. Have a super weekend!

Marg said...

Oh Phantom, we missed this yesterday, and you made our Person smile big time, that you were talking to that Donkey. We are sure they cousins to Smoke and Joe and they look like very nice donkeys and they also look like Miniature donkeys which are what Joe and Smoke are. What fun for you and the donkeys were nice to you too. Sometimes donkeys will try to chase donkeys. Anyway, we are thrilled that you got to talk to the donkey. Take care.

Sweet. I have heard that donkeys make excellent "guard dogs" for other barnyard animals. Maybe I should get one to protect my chickens...
