At first Galahad, who was inside feed jail, blew up and got all excited. Then Luc flew out of the front pasture like he was fired from a cannon. Whell I be darn the neighbors’ cows were out and we had one inside the center donkey pasture and a couple more in the oat field. Don’t know what Luc was going to do about it but he had a full head of steam going there for a couple of minutes.
Teamdonk #2 was hitched to the four wheeled Robert’s buggy as we had company on today’s excursion. We had just been driving in the field the cows were in and had come back to make adjustments, thank goodness we didn’t come across them free grazing. After we lengthened the pole we left Luc and Galahad home to supervise the morning’s big cattle roundup.
We drove the local fields and even did a little bit of a road drive and then back home thru our hayfield. It was a wonderful six and a half mile tour of the neighborhood in two hours and forty-five minutes. The boys did great, Hank had a bit of a trace rub, the harness was not as exact as I like it, I believe the pole needed moved forward one more notch. The Roberts buggy rides incredibly smooth, that is why it’s known as Teamdonk’s Cadillac! It’s was a real treat to have donkey lovin’ company on today’s adventure. The photos posted today and those on tomorrow’s blog will all be from this morning’s drive.
