Where Have all the Donkeys Gone?

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

The other day, I went to find my friends, the donkeys.  I like playing ball with Clive, Rufus, and Billy but they were not outside in their paddock.  After searching for a bit, I did locate them in the stable.  Who knew you had to make an appointment to play?

Betsy keeps us inside because we don't know when to stop eating the thick green grass.  We'll just eat and eat and eat until we burst!

But, we'll be outside for a few hours tomorrow morning.  Let's play ball then!  OK GK?

  • GK you are so adorable and the mini donkeys and the horses all want some of your attention. What a fun playground you have to call your ball field. Lucky dog!
    Have a fun weekend.

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    Keeping fit playing ball with your friends is always a good thing. Sharkey likes to play with the donkeys, not so much Franny. So you will have to include your big sister G.K. when you come back tomorrow. Hope everyone has a good weekend and stays cool.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    And hello to you too GK. I love to run and chase but I don’t have any donkeys to play with. You are so lucky to be on a farm with other animals to play with, but having to make an appointment to play ball is just a little much. It’s Friday and the weekend is near. Mommy and daddy are still trying to catch up around here but it’s taking a long time. Daddy couldn’t do much last year with his sickness and things got a little behind. Mommy said that she would like to get a little “behind” but I think she was talking about something else. I hear her coming so I’d better be leaving.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Ummmm...how do donkeys survive in the wild if they will eat until they burst? I haven't seen too many donkeys laying around dead because of eating to much grass. Hmmmm.

  • Hi GK: Playing ball with the mini-donkeys sounds like lots of fun. I would like to do that some day, but the donkeys that lived down the road don't live there anymore. They have horses now and they are very big. I see you get to visit and talk with the horses too. I like Rinze's shiny hooves. Wonder where he is going all fixed up like that.

    Momma and daddy picked me up from the deluxe kennel this afternoon and I had a swell time. It is very hot here. Daddy said it is about 90 degrees. I don't understand all that degree stuff, but I do know it is very hot. At the boarding kennel and at home, I always have lots of air conditioning too, whatever that is, but it's nice and cool.

    Well, it's time for me to have an afternoon nap. Everybody have a great weekend and have lots of fun. GK, you sure are growing up fast!

    Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Awww GK you look so cute looking for the donkeys to play with. Where were your big sisters? I think Sharkey's idea of playing with the donkeys is different than yours and the donkeys. :wink: Maybe you can get Franny to at least run around the paddock.

    I read on your Mommy Martha's blog that the grass is so green and rich that if Rufus, Clive, and Billy ate too much, they would get sick so they only get a few hours outside a day.

    Have a fun weekend everyone. :smile:

  • Hi G.K., You are getting bigger and more handsome all the time. That must have been a fun time trying to find your good friends, the donkeys. How thoughtful of Ramon to help you out. Rinze's hoofs sure did look shiny. I'll bet you can't wait for the donkeys to come outside so you all can have fun playing with those balls. Have a nice weekend and say hi to the girls and Martha. Love, Dudley Do Right

  • well I've been without a computer for two weeks...I had Malware infection and it did a real job...so now I'm back in a new browser and catching up on all the happenings here...so glad G.K. found the donkeys and that they are off the grass, it can be bad this time of year for founder and other overeating ailments for the equine...I can't get over how much you have grown G.K.
