Well, I'm kinda killing my idea of a big, pretty post with lots of nice pictures to introduce my two new family members.  I didn't get home with them until after dark and I can't wait any longer to tell you I bought the donkeys!

Meet Pedro and Bob.  (I'm not sure I'm keeping their names, but they probably know them and I think they're kinda cute.)

They loaded up like champs, even though they're accustomed to a ramp.  Just maybe a minute or two of thought before stepping in.  I don't think they really enjoyed the trailer ride, but they stood quietly the whole time.  I talked to them every time we made a stop, and Pedro got to where he would do a quiet little almost bray when I approached.  Bob was kinda glued with his butt to the back door, but eventually he walked up to the window for a bite of apple.  What cute lips they have!

They unloaded in the dark, with just a little hesitation, and went into the round pen for the night.  I can't wait to play with them tomorrow!

They are beautiful and intelligent animals. Very different minds than horses though. This should prove to be very interesting getting to know them. Very cool that you took them both!
