I Tried

I've taken Gabe out trail riding several times in the last week and I've had my camera all set and ready to record another Ramsey bray when we returned, but no bray.  I think it demonstrates just how fast donkeys learn.  That first time, Ramsey was separated from Emma quite a bit and he was between us and mom.  He cried out an alarm and hustled back to Emma.  Ever since, Emma has been between us and Ramsey on our return and no alarm was needed.

I know everyone would like to hear a mighty Ramsey bray, but I take it as a good sign that he and Emma are so quiet.  Donkeys bray to raise an alarm or because they want or need something.  Since my donkeys rarely make a peep, I guess it means they feel safe and have all that they want.  How can I argue with that?  Still, I will keep my camera handy just in case.

On another note, I am very much hoping to have some good news to share tomorrow.  Wish us luck. 


  1. Oh, gosh, now we are all tuned in and listening!

  2. My four donkeys bray every morning when they see me coming to give them food. Morris also brays for the violin...

    I like your blog. We should exchange links.


    1. I think mine would bray as well if they had to wait for me to feed them. Right now, they always have access to food. When they get a little older and their nutritional needs a lower I will have to do something different.

      I love your violin videos, I may have to try that:)

  3. You bet: wishing you the best of luck! (I've been keeping my fingers crossed!)
