It’s November 4th, which means it’s our first official donkey-versary!
This time last year we parked our hire care in the drive of an agistment property in Emerald, Victoria. The donkeys( which we had bought sight unseen several weeks earlier) had been enjoying life there while waiting for us to arrive from WA.
My first impression getting out of the car was , “Oh, how small they are!. Will they be okay to pack?”!But oh, how cute and friendly they were.
We haltered and lead roped them with the idea of taking our new acquisitions out for a short stroll.
Unfortunately, neither Basil nor Jasmine had the faintest what was expected of them when it came to lead. ” They’ll do”, I said to Z. ” Yes they are tiny, and they don’t know how to lead yet, but they’ll do.”
And boy, have they done. It’s amazing to think that it was only a year ago that these two characters came into our lives. Along with our trusty old boy Fly, we have been through thick and thin together and they have etched themselves forever into our hearts.
Here’s to many more years of adventuring together, Basil and JAsmine!
