Kind of like Elvis has left the building ! Yesterday morning I decided Sweetie, AKA Rocket Horse, was well enough to be released from her imprisonment.
She rejoiced by spending the whole morning running and leaping,followed close behind by Clyde the donkey, who was overjoyed to have one of his girls back.
Although Clyde did not leap,he followed behind gleefully.Well,as gleeful as a donkey can be. Sweetie demonstrated her rocket abilities the whole time. Now, you may think we call her Rocket Horse because she is fast as a rocket when she runs. Nope. She ...um..well..passes gas very loudly when she takes off! Not being a horse person,I am not for sure if all horses blast off this way or if it is just our rootin' tootin' horse that does this. Then there is the whole chicken and the egg question. Does the running trigger the rocket toots or does the surprise of the rocket toots startle her into running, because I think if I heard something that loud exploding behind me I would run for the hills!
As you can see she also celebrated by having a good roll in the mud.Hey,when you hang with Dirty Donkeys long enough you are bound to pick up some of their habits!
Sadly,poor Bonnie is not ready for release yet.She is getting better but at a slower pace and her wound still needs doctoring. Since she is next to impossible to catch,she must stay in the barn.I hope it will be soon because now that Sweetie has been paroled Clyde doesn't hang out at the barn as much to keep her company and she is very attached to him.
So as no to end on a sad note,here is a picture of The Boy and Weenie Dog!
