Moving donkeys

Today Raphael and I decided to move the donkeys to the convent where all the sheep are. They have a grassy field there and are eagerly awaiting their arrival to save on mowing. All we had to do was to coax them into the trailer and in a few minutes, the job would be done.

In the shot above Kevin looks quite confident but things didn't work out that way. Donkeys are the stubbornest creatures and if they don't want to do something, you might as well abandon it.

They did not want to get into the trailer.

I won't say that the donkey's won but in the end we decided not to move them. We said we'd move them next week.

  1. How funny you are, Daddy!
    You seem to have the gift of turning tragedy to comedy on your blog. It looks so funny now it's all over. You certainly have a truthful way portraying the donkeys character. There really is no way around their iron will!
