It got so warm here this afternoon that poor Emma was sweating and breathing hard just standing in the barn. I decided it was time to introduce her to the hose. Emma has never seen a hose before but in typical donkey fashion, she was unfazed. I showed it to her before turning it on, gave her a treat and she was instantly fine with it. Donkeys are soo smart and easy to work with (so unlike evil farm machinery). Once I turned it on, she really liked it. She just stood there while I hosed her neck and chest, I didn't even have to hold on to her. Her breathing slowed right down and she just relaxed and enjoyed her nice cool shower.
Emma: "This spa treatment is a pretty good deal, but you can take that camera off somewhere else. I need my beauty sleep you know."
