Visitors From Afar....
Donkey Dame Blog) have 'known' each other for a while and have happily exchanged donkey stories and news over the virtual grapevine. They have never actually met though as Donkey Dame lives in Canada which apparently is mules miles and quite a swim away (I can't manage it with my petite legs although FH reckons I'd be quite buoyant?! Hmmm). So when we heard that Donkey Dame and her significant other were visiting our fair (read windy and wet!) shores we pleaded with them to come visit.
FH got first dibs and showed Donkey Dame around where she works... enough long ears to satisfy any donkey addict apparently, alas not many mules to see! So in the interests of fairness we invited our guests to Muleteer HQ, hoping they could look past the mud and slight untidiness!
Us mules are good judges of character and we liked these visitors A LOT! The others tried to push in on the meet and greet duty... Roller snuffled a bit before going back to eating and Dragon introduced herself to the men in the party.... not long though before I persuaded them this was my party and I was definitely The Host.
So I endeared myself with lots of rest on shoulder snuffles, some reversing for bottom scratching and a little nudging. The Donkey Dame was entirely impressed by me I could tell.... do you think she would like a mini mule to add to her herd? Come to think of it what would FH do without me? Hmmm maybe I could go for short holidays if I concentrate and get a pilot's license?
I duly posed for photos with my most honoured guest and FH, I know that my visitors really travelled all this way just to see me and my mulificent ears... I do not believe what FH says about these folks being on holiday and having work plans.... whatever, I know the truth! Who wouldn't travel half way around the world to pet King Mini?!
