Happy Christmas everyone. It is a simple Christmas, as always, here with the donkeys. The routine is the same for them whatever the season or the weather, but today – unusually for December – it is raining unceasingly and our planned Christmas morning walk is cancelled. Rubí has her new smart head collar. The others have all has their head collars replaced when they outgrew them, but Rubí has not grown much bigger since I bought her three years ago. The new head collars have soft foam padding in the nose-band and the head-band. I have tried to keep to a consistent colour code, so the donkeys can be recognized in old photos: red for Rubí (naturally!), green for Aitana, blue (old purple foal collar) for Morris, and salmon pink for Matilde. I was going to take a few more photos of donks in Santa hats today when out walking, but due to the weather that is not possible. It’s an in-stable Christmas.
So, here are the donks from a few days ago in their Santa hats and the foals in the photo archive.
Finally, well done to Matilde who has been bringing a little joy to the elderly in an old folks home this Christmas.
