Here’s proof that you can be cute as a button and still do a tough and dirty job! Donkeys are often hired to keep an eye on the flock. Usually calm and gentle, the guard donkey will put his strong teeth and sharp hooves into action when a predator comes near his sheepish friends.
It was quiet, peaceful and all was well on the day that I stopped to admire the lovely flock. The donkey gave me a little show by rolling around in the pasture and then came over to the fence, as if he wanted to get to know me and was pleased I had stopped by. Animals have such personality and like a little company to spice up the day. I wonder what they say about us.
