RUNNING

March 22, 2012

We are experiencing a freakish hot spell here in Southern Ontario right now: +25 today.  The donkeys and mules, of course, are most contented with this aberration (they are desert animals, after all ) and it has made them energetically frisky for several days now.

Tibet, Juno, Juliet and  Saucy are on strictly controlled diets and so they pass their days in the Garden Paddock.  Yesterday, I had the pleasure to watch them race around in circles intermittently in the sunshine.   The mules, for their part, have been running down and around their grazing field in wild abandon on and off for the past three days.  It is so easy to smile whenever they do this.

Equines  in motion are a thrilling  sight.  In days gone by when they roamed the savannahs and desert hills of  Northern  Africa I imagine that the beauty of their wild freedom would have made a viewer gasp.
