Donkey In The Meadow | Good fences #11

These lovely donkeys were grazing so quietly in the beautiful green meadow. Just asking myself: can a donkey become uncomfortably over - heate? I don't know. But the swishing action of the tail  is helping this donkey to keep annoying flies from biting.

Niet zomaar een beetje warm. Maar tropische hitte. Daar raak ik niet aan gewend. Deze mooie ezels leken er geen last van te hebben. Zouden zij er beter tegen kunnen dan ik? Ze graasden rustig in het weiland. Met hun staart joegen ze de vliegen weg.



This one (below) is Absolute Beautiful! What do you think? Is a donkey a ruminant? I have found the answer. No, because a ruminant needs to have a cloven hoof and be a cud chewer :-) Blogging about donkeys in the meadow I suddenly remember this classic childrens game: The tail of te donkey. So cute!

Ezeltje Prrrrik
Deze ezel vond ik zo mooi met al die vlekken. Wat denk jij? Is een ezelf een herkauwer net als de koeien? Al bloggend schoot ineens dat leuke spel in mijn gedachten. Ik weet nog dat ik het speelde in de klas toen mijn vader jarig was (hij was meester). Ezeltje prrrrik. Ken jij dat ook? Die oude spelletjes waren zo leuk!


This green pasture has a very nice fence of wooden poles and wire. I like it! But whether it is strong enough? I don't know. I have read that donkeys are clever, and they'll find a way to escape if you don't install a good fence around the pasture. It should be as high as the donkey's shoulders.

Hoog hek
Deze wei was omzoomt met een mooi hek van houten paaltjes en staaldraad. Ik vind het mooi staan maar dacht wel: Is het sterk genoeg? De ezels horen bij deze zorgboerderij.

  4. {{giggling}} as much as I like donkeys, it is an issue at the moment-politically in our household at the present time, smiles.

  6. What cute donkeys. I like the one with the spots. They have nice fences and pretty green pastures.

    Just to answer your question on my blog post. Yes, Walla Walla is a real name. It's a Native American Indian name which means, Land of Many Waters.

  10. very sweet. and wonderful green meadow for them. we have lots of spotted donkeys in this area. cattle ranchers keep them to guard their herds. they keep the young calves safe from coyotes.

  17. Wat een leuke foto's van de Ezels.
    Die met de vlekken is wel heel erg leuk, lijken wel op giraf vlekken.

    Schattig om te zien.

    Groettie van Patricia.

  21. I enjoy seeing fences of all kinds. I have never seen one like this. Very interesting. Good fences are so necessary, not only for animals, but in various areas of our lives. Fences are for our protection and so many people strain and struggle because they do not like God's fences.
