Morris clings to mum

Since I have begun to try and arrange the future for young Morris, he seems to be undermining the whole process. Last Saturday I tried to walk him and Rubi two kilometres up the road to see an English lady who has a small collection of animals and may have been interested in taking Morris for a “fostering” placement for a few months. He refused to walk any further when we got to the halfway point. He knew something was planned!

Now he seems to be putting on even more of a show. Morris is suddenly returning to very affectionate behaviour with his mother Rubi. Morris is now nearly as big as Rubi, but has begun to exhibit again some of the closeness to his mother that I haven’t seen for a couple of months. He has been much more interested in the other females recently. That’s why I wanted to get him off the field! Today, he spent a very long time affectionately grooming his mother and she grooming him. I’ll have to think again! How can I separate these two? Just watch them…

About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have two blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog.

    Goodness! Morris has grown! He looks very like Rubi, with an auburn bonnet. What a lovely video!

    The Morris fostering plan has now been put on hold. Plan B will come into effect instead. I am going to buy some new fencing and separate Morris from the others behind his own special fence! This will also be the noisy option…
