Tail of Two Asses

I just had to end my weekend on an interesting note! 

John Richmond came out to the house to trim the hooves of my donkey and two goats.  Now Lizzy our donkey is tame and she's halter broke...but being a donkey she is stubborn.

We had to chase her down in a three acre pasture to get the halter on her.  Not because she was afraid of us or didn't want the halter on...but because it is fun to watch 3-4 human beings chase her around the pasture.


Finally 3 of us were able to get her in a corner and get a halter and rope on her.

The husband who promised to love, cherish, care for me...etc, etc....left the donkey's rope in my hand and took off. Well so did the donkey.

I couldn't let go of the rope..maybe one of those natural reflexes or something??? And she drug me around half of the donkey pen.  She considerately dragged me around a tree, thru a sticker patch and into a fence before I let go. 

I stood up spitting out a mouthful of dirt. John, to his credit, wanted to laugh but didn't. 
However, my dearly beloved husband about busted a gut laughing before he even asked me if I was okay!!  I don't know which of the two asses I was most angry at.

The next day I was so sore that I could hardly move and I actually had to pick a sticker out of my cheekbone with a needle!!
