For those of you who may not know,this is Clyde. Clyde Hyde is his whole name,because most all our animals have 2 names!
 Clyde likes to carry things off. He is always carrying off the rubber feed pans and just about anything he can get those big ole rubbery donkey lips around!  We have to be careful what we  leave lying around because it will disappear before we can blink twice! It is a  sight to see this funny looking little white donkey running across the pasture with a big black rubber feed pan in his mouth! Of course,you all know he is not going to do it when I have a camera with me! So I decide I would try and distract him with one of those Jolly Balls they make for horses to play with.
As you can see,Clyde is unimpressed!
He nibbled at it a little but would not take it from The Boy..
Bon-Bon Bonnie and Sweetie came over to check it out too. Bonnie decided she would take it if Clyde didn't want it!
I have caught Clyde in the act of running off with stuff,but now I am thinking that he may have had an accomplice!
Bonnie sure seemed to know what she was doing with this ball!
 Well, I am glad some donkey decided it was fun! Clyde says for now he will stick to getting scratchins from The Boy!

Two of my horses ignore the jolly ball, but I have one that just loves it. He tosses it all over the pasture.

LOL Clyde is soo cute as is Bonnie... I think your son has grown yet another foot since I saw him!

LOL too! I love(s) donkey's and burrow's. So Clyde is himself a sort of borrower of discarded things. Cool.

Great post! The boy is growing like a week.

When I was a pre-teen we lived in Spain and had a donkey named Experanza, she loved to run regardless if she had a rider or not. They are such sweet little animals.

OK, my something new for the day - I didn't know they made toys for the big animals! Hmmm.

Looks like the jolly ball is not so jolly anymore! Glad you took a photo of it before it got donkey slobber all over. ;)

John Gray said...

something quite benign about him.. and love the name... I like PROPER names for animals! like people!

Teresa said...

They are so cute! It's awfully nice of you to get them a toy, but if they are like kids, they'll still prefer to find their own toy~kind of like playing with the box.

Clyde is beautiful! Not sure I've ever seen a white donkey before.

Leontien said...

Haha i bought a ball like that for my Classic, but he didn't do anything with it! Jones, or dog, LOVED the thing though!

Thanks

What a cute donkey! I'm wanting to give that little goat in the sidebar a squeeze. My daughter would have a fit over him.
