Harassing Hank, the sequel

We resume our story at the point where Alan and George are contemplating
diabolical ways to retaliate against Hank for all his misdeeds.

George: Be careful now. I think mom may be spying on us.



I watch in disbelief as Alan takes a bite out of Hank's butt.



That didn't get a rise out of the big guy, so Alan starts to paw at him...



...then has the nerve to stomp on him.



Hank: Was that my imagination or did I just get kicked in the ass by an ass?



Alan: Maybe we should pull his tail.
George: I'm not sure that's such a good idea.
Alan: Go ahead – try it. I've stuck my neck out enough times. It's your turn.



Alan: Pull a little harder.



At this point, I decided enough was enough. 
I got off the fence, and Lucy and I went over to break things up.



Lucy: I could be wrong here, but I think Hank has just about had it with you two.


Hank: That would be a true statement.



Hank: I can't believe you let them harass me like that. It's that damned blog, isn't it?
You were taking pictures at my expense.




Me: Yeah, so maybe I was. But you know I love you, 
and so do a whole bunch of other people who are smiling back at you right now.

  12. Glad you saved the day. Those little guys are such tormentors. They remind me of little kids. Hank still has his cute horseface on so all is well. Great shots and a great story.

  31. The burro boys couldn't have done a better job providing you with a story if you had trained them for months! What silly antics they provide! What were they thinking that made Hank's rump look like a good toy?

    Thanks for the laugh!

  32. Poor Hank gets no respect from them, does he? Maybe he should get some Paco treats to soothe his rumpled pride.

    Leave it to the Burrito Brothers to start trouble. Hank, I want to kiss your nose!! You are so adorable. At least you still have your tail.

    I know of a mini donkey that ate the tail off his pasture mate, a horse named Buck. Took two years for it to grow back.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, my heart! These are the best pictures, and you have amazingly (as always) interpreted their thoughts and comments!!! Yes, I'm smiling back at Hank in his last photo. He's a charmer, and soooooo patient with those bad boys!!!
