We picked Rocky up, he jumped right into the trailer. I got my run down of all my meds I need to administer. The roads were slightly better than going out. Our road has a decent incline with a turn involved and I just didn't know if the truck and trailer were going to make it all the way. My husband walked down and I hand walked Rocky up and he drove the truck and trailer up, no problem of course. I just didn't want him bouncing around in the trailer too much, or worse loosing traction and ending up in the ditch, overprotective donkey mom?
Daisy went from thrilled Rocky was home, to just mad....Probably because he's acting differently than before and she doesn't know what to think of it. She busted out her old OCD behavior of licking things. When I bought her, the prior owner kept her in a 12x12 pen for TWO YEARS! She developed some stress coping mechanisms, one is licking the fence a bunch. So while its cute I see it potentially as a sign that she is feeling stressed.
Here to share all my donkey related adventures....why? Because they're basically the best thing ever.
