Down the Road with Duncan

 Our next little hike wasn't really a hike at all. Duncan and I went for a 5 1/2 mile walk.

He has recently learned how to trot next to me thanks to some Warwick Schiller training videos I've been watching.  So we did a little jogging too. One negative effect of the time he spent at the trainer's is that he's more apt to think about refusing. It's kind of momentary scared response, then a "No." Not a very big No, but it wasn't there before.

In other news, there is a group of standard and mammoth donkeys in need of rescue right near me and John has emphatically said No and he means it. I feel like a spoiled toddler and I want to throw a fit. He is right, we don't need another mouth to feed or 4 more hooves to care for. But really, it's not like a donkey costs much to care for. I haven't given up yet.

Donkeys really are good at helping to heal. They might be just the thing for your head injuries:)

I agree! :) I'm going up to meet them tomorrow. I can't wait.
