The Big City just sounds so busy, lots of people, lots of noise and not much green grass. I can't imagine what I'd live on? I'm a growing boy you know. FH enjoyed herself but was very pleased to be home with us muleteers. She returned to a bit of a mess though.... we have had severe flooding over the weekend, MH was left on emergency duty, ditches were dug, hourly checks made and lots of clean bedding and ample straw arranged so that us muleteers could stay safe and dry. Wow! We were so lucky, we had a little bit of rain that blew in through our doorways and an ample amount of mud but the deluge stayed firmly outside, unlike most of our neighbours we were not flooded - phew! I had been communicating hard with the rain doctor and for once he listened.
FH had only been home a few minutes before she was at the tidy up, it would have been rude to let her do it all by herself so I gave her my best encouragement. FH likes to have kisses blown in her face whilst she is organising our beds so as she had rather a lot to do I snuffled away.
Today brought welcome relief when we had a little bit of sunshine if only for it to be rudely interrupted by yet more rain... will it ever stop? FH came home full of news, good and bad. Some that had made her heart sink and left her in need of snuffle treatment (we obliged of course) and some that is good and bad. FH was telling us about some poor long ears that had been abandoned in a bog (http://www.thedonkeysanctuary.org.uk/press-release/5827) and one of them had drowned. Imagine how awful that would be? If we didn't have nice humans that loved us the same could happen to any of us.... FH wasn't all doom and gloom though. These special donkeys have been rescued and will now be cared for by the folks at The Donkey Sanctuary, hopefully they will one day find themselves in a lovely home like ours with friends just like mine.
