Walk softly and carry a big stick, the conclusion

When we left the burros yesterday, Alan was being a jackass and teasing George unmercifully.
They hugged and made up, then returned to the pasture to play with the big stick.


Hank's over there watching us. Let's see if he wants to play.



Yo, Hank. Don't stand there all by yourself.



There's room enough for three on this thing.



Grab an end.



This is a bad idea. Somebody will get hurt,
so you'd better put the stick down, Alan.



I said PUT THE STICK DOWN.



Geesh, he can be so bossy sometimes.

Every time I turn my back, they get into trouble.

  1. I got a good laugh over this ... Hank does rule and he sure set the burros straight! I thought yesterday that Deets might intervene, but seems he's disappeared altogether.

  4. It's so cute the way the burro boys want to play. They are a party in a burro suit, for sure!

    BTW, does Pat in TN ever go to bed? She certainly is up early enough! :)

  6. That is just the cutest series of pictures ever! George and Alan really do look like they're hugging in the first picture.

    Hank is way too cool to play with a stick! Do horses "play" with anything?

  8. The playground lady! Remember the playground lady? The one keeping order and generally being a ... well, damper on a party?

    It's tough being the enforcer - glad Hank is there to take it on.

  12. That was really adorable. However, Hank has to learn to stop being such a party pooper. Burros just want to have fun!

  13. HA! I do go to bed, but you must factor in the time difference between where I am vs Carson.

  14. Wonderful! I think that George and Alan should have their own line of children's books. By the way... love the way the commentary and Hank's ears seem to totally agree.

  18. Ironically, horses do "play"! I had a mare that liked using me for a "human Yo-Yo". Apparently my belt was a bit too long for my waist( ah the memories) and she grabbed about 6 inches of it and held me above the ground! I learned really quick not to wear that belt when sitting out in the pasture reading a book and she was around!

  19. So funny! Hank doesn't put up with their antics much, does he? Of course I bet their Laurel and Hardy shtick gets old if you have to live with it 24/7. Actually, I really doubt that! Lighten up, Hank!
