Lazy day at the barn

Wikke was being very "special" yesterday, so I just gave him a quick grooming and put him back out in the pasture. Was a nice day for sitting in the grass and watching the equines anyway

Just some pics of Wikke, his pasturemates, barn cats, etc.

Wow, great pictures. And if the donkey goes missing it wasn't me *whistles innocently*

Great shots Sara!
Couple of questions, is that a mammoth jack? Do you wrap Wikke's tail or is it just naturally long and lovely?
What are your plans for him by the way? Now that he is getting to be a big boy

Nope, Luke's just a standard donkey, he's a little guy and a very good herd watchdog

Wikke's tail is all-natural, I don't do a thing with it aside from comb cowboy magic through it maybe once or twice a month with a pair of latex gloves. Luckily, it doesn't tend to snarl, just makes these long, corkscrew hanks of hair. If you want it, you can have it: his hair is very thick, coarse and a pita to take care of!

Training plans for this year are very light lunging (more for learning the voice commands for "walk" "trot" and "whoa" and whip cues than exercise), introducing him to the tack, and ground driving. There are more desensitizing lessons that would benefit him as well, like getting used to bicycles, loud engine noise, chains and tires dragging behind him, etc.

Mostly, I just want to do as much as possible to get him ready for his trip to the trainer next summer for harness and saddle work; going to be expensive enough as it is!

Ahem...sorry about the book, I get carried away

LOVELY photos once again Sara. I'm jealous!

@ JDI: I use a Canon Rebel XTI body with a Canon EF 70-200mm lens. I would like to upgrade to a true telephoto lens...maybe someday, when I win the lottery!

@ mom: She is nice, right? Raven is unregistered, but we are fairly sure she's at least part if not full warmblood. Would not be surprised if Art Deco is somewhere in her lineage...she's got the look of his offspring, especially in the back end. I wish I could afford to buy her right now...though its probably a good thing I can't
