The makings of a burro sandwich

The weather has finally warmed up and I can be outside without a coat and gloves. It's about time. This winter was so dreadful, I couldn't hang out with the boys as much as I normally do, so now I'm making up for all lost time. Yesterday, I pulled up a chair to just sit and watch them eat their dinner.

George would rather have his butt scratched than eat, so he backed over to my hand, knowing I would oblige.




Deets hopped into my lap (what a surprise) and started his grooming thing.



Deets, if you're going to sit there, earn your keep. Your nails are longer than mine. Help me out here.




Then Alan came over to see what he was missing, and now I'm the filling in a burro sandwich.



Do I mind? Not a bit.




Hurry back. We'll be waiting.

  1. I'm glad it's warmed up for you ... enough of winter for all of us!

    You have such a talent for being able to take the best pictures, such as you being the filling in the burro sandwich! HA! I'm amazed that your chair didn't become their new toy, such as the cone and jolly ball.

  2. To me personally your pictures put me there. I could be sitting in that chair. Sometimes us animal lovers feel more comfortable in that white chair than in a group of people. Your animals are blessed and so are you. Like the black and white.

  4. Very funny. I have a friend at work who has had cattle and horses for years and added a couple of burros. He's having a lot of fun with them. He tells tales all the time about them.

  5. Oh, the last picture of them waiting for you by the empty chair was priceless. That says it all. So cute!

  6. It's a good thing you explained the top of your head and Deets'... I would've thought you were sprouting ears. ;)

  9. I was thinking the same as Pat in east TN. Looks like the boys are ready to start a game of chair.

  12. It does sound like Heaven. And I always love the closeups of burrow/horse muzzles - I feel as though I could reach into my monitor and feel those velvety noses!

  13. Feel quilty about your winter being such a bugger and ours being such a non-event. But you will have spring grass and our grass has been growing since February...making it pretty deadly out there founder-wise. Had my first mini-early-no reaction to the hoof tester-founder about a month ago. The first in mine or the mini's life. It pays to watch your critters, closely.
