Not a lot of creatures have wandered into my life of their own accord. Two … if I’m counting. Paco is the biggest. I’d never met a horse or donkey as a friend before. Sure, I’d seen them. I think I’d seen a donkey before Paco … can’t remember where … but surely?
I am so glad that he ambled over to the fence of his former field to say hello and to mooch some fresh pulled grass. Before I knew it I had crawled through his fence and was the mooch myself – mooching lovely Paco cuddles. We became great friends. I looked out for him – and he for me. I’d bring him carrots, go for walks in the woods and the BIG fields he had access to. I could hear him calling if he saw me walking in the village below his hill.
Now we get to live at the same place. I LOVE that when I step outside our door he is there. He knows he has a special place in my heart. We have our secret signals that allow him to get the odd solo treat if he can get away from his jennies. 😉 He knows hand signals for ‘come here’ and ‘treats are in my pocket’ and ‘give me your hoof’ and ‘ear scratch?’. I know his signals for ‘ear scratch please’ and ‘come here’ and ‘give me your hand’… Hmmm… funny how those match up! Ha!
As far as I’m concerned … when the powers that be moved to create donkeys they created a masterpiece!
