Nosy Animals September 21, 2007

Okay, I couldn’t resist the obvious pun.

(‘Mator puckers up for a kiss).

  Nothing is safe from his nibbling- shoelaces, pockets, shirt-tails, elbows.  Not mean, mind you.  He just doesn’t want to miss out on any hidden treats or go unnoticed.

(Not to be outdone, Woody comes in for smooch). 

Well, okay since this is Woody, it was more likely a bite.  We are seeking a new home for Mr. GrumpyPants.


But as long as we are on the topic of donkeys-

(Shall we dance?)

Even though Woody isn’t nice, we’ve been reluctant to get rid of him since he is Buzz’s only equine buddy.  Woody bullies Buzz a lot, but they also play, race around, and pull each other’s scraggly winter coat hair out- a chimpanzee grooming kind of thing that’s odd to watch.  Since we can’t let the kids in the pasture with Woody for fear of him kicking them, we have been looking for a new home for him.  Ideally, we’d get Buzz a nice jenny to keep him company, but we don’t know of any for sale.

You’re right. I hadn’t taken much note of it until recently. A description I’ve read says they are “rectangular,” but they actually have rounded off corners, kind of like a medicine capsule. I’ve never had an opportunity to watch them dilate or constrict but it seems odd to think of anything besides the circle shape of ours being able to do that.
