Look Who Came to Visit

Aren't these guys cute?  We met them on our walk last weekend.  We heard one of these burros's braying as we approached a farm in the neighborhood, funny we've walked past it many times before but never noticed these guys out in the pasture.  As I stopped to take their picture one of the guys stood still and looked up as if to give me a good pose for my effort.  He and his buddy were curious about us so they sauntered over to the fence for a visit.  Sadie, our border collie, surprisingly, sat calmly while these guys checked us out.  We all had a sweet visit.

Growing up, my family had a burro, his name was Hosea and he was a sweet boy, but as the saying goes "stubborn as a mule",  the mule side of Hosea was stubborn.  He was very unfavourable toward kids riding him so in protest (and stubbornness) he wouldn't move an inch, hoping he would discourage us against hopping up on his back.  Hosea had a sweet face and a mild disposition, when I think about him, I can still hear his braying pulling me out of a summer's morning sleep.
