They'd rather do it themselves

Someone recently asked if I groomed the burros with brushes. I do occasionally, but they're just not into the whole head-to-hoof spa treatment – unlike Hank and Lucy, the pampered prince and princess. After a good dirt bath, George and Alan prefer to groom themselves.

Perhaps if I used my teeth instead of a curry comb, they'd be more appreciative.


George: A little to the left, please.



Alan: I think Lucy wants a piece of this action.
George: Let's ignore her. Three's a crowd.


George: Make an appointment with mom if you want to get groomed. 
She might be able to do something about those unsightly chin hairs of yours.
 


Lucy: Why do I put up with this?

  2. It's sad, but unfortunately pretty girls do get hair chins from time to time.... tweezers anyone?

  5. Your photos and captions are always so spot-on. Truly a delight, especially first thing in the morning! Or at the end of a looong day. Or for a midday pick-me-up.

  6. The next time I think I might be a little rough in grooming the horses, I'll think of this and remember that my attack with the curry comb doesn't even come close to what teeth can do!

  7. I'm still laughing at the image you put in my mind of you grooming Alan and George with your teeth! Good thing you didn't set it to music or I would be humming the grooming tune all day long! Love these guys. :)

  8. Do you recall seeing those Cadbury chocolate commercials where different animals tried out to be the Cadbury bunny by wearing tall furry ears? I remember a llama tried out, but, Oh, I laughed when I saw that last pic of Lucy...SHE is the next Cadbury bunny!!
