"Don't worry guys, it'll only be a little while. I just have to do a wee bit of fencing...."
"FENCING?! NO. No, no, noooooo! Step away from the fence Ma, unless you plan on taking it down altogether, just let us out and step away."
"Sorry guys, it's got to be done. It's for your own good."
"But Maaa, the grass is just starting to get REALLY good. You can't take it all away. Pleeeeeease."
"C'mon now, buck up, you know I'm not taking it ALL away, (just most of it). You get your track system back today. Won't that be fun:)?"
"We were having lots of fun as is Ma, you just have to go and spoil it. Hey, blog peoples, anyone out there want to come rescue us poor starved donkeys? Seriously, does it look like we're having fun, locked up in jail while our Ma takes all our good, yummy grass away? SAVE US!"
