there was a bit of excitement here...

...Sunday, in the wee hours of the morning,
5 am to be exact,
and it involved these two.
Don't let their innocent looks
fool you...

Apparently for some time they've been
hatching a plot,
biding their time,
waiting for the clip that secures
their stall latch to be forgotten
by their girl as she tucks them in for
the night...

It's not good to wake up at 5 am to the sound
of a gallop past one's bedroom.
I ran to the window just in time to see
a very bad little donkey race back past as fast as
his stumpy little legs would carry him.
I ran to the other window,
and saw Miss Jessica in the back yard
galloping in circles for joy.
It was barely light yet,
but I saw the two of them disappear together.
A look out the front window proved our
worst fears,
there they were, traisping around the
new neighbors' yard and barn.
Won't they be glad to have us as neighbors...
The culprits were soon apprehended ~ some
grain in a bucket was too much to resist ~
and returned by the early morning light...

...waiting no doubt for their next opportunity.
And that, dear people, is about as exciting as it
gets around here!

    Oh my! That sounds like a plan long in the making! A little fun does the heart good though, as long as the neighbours aren't too upset!

  2. Too exciting for me! lol, I don't like *that* kind of excitement, but of course they are an adorable duo. Love the pics and the story! -Tammy

    Isn't it fun to live in the country? You just never know what will happen next! We've been having frogs laying their eggs in our swimming pool instead of the pond. Grrr...!

    Like naughty little children - it's hard not to laugh at their rascalness even in the middle of being a bit annoyed...

  5. A very sweet posting. Ahhhh, freedom!

    Having cows & a husband who often leaves the gate open "for just a minute", this has been the scene at our place also - but not at early morning hours.   Hope your two were easy to get back in.  A bucket of feed usually does the trick!   Mary Ann Cauthen

  14. That's exactly what worked--a bucket of feed:)
