Ice-Cream Slimed

By | Animal Tales, Critter Feedback | No Comments

Another Animal Tale featuring “Sweet Pea”, our delightful miniature Jerusalem Donkey:

“Ok, so look, I really like kids, ok? Ok. And, hey, they’re my bread and butter… make that my hay and sweet feed. But I’m only donkey, ok?! And it’s not the coolest day on the books. ‘Hey, you with the third ice-cream cone running down all over your hands’… What? No, no— he wants to pet me… this boy is actually going to slime me with those icky, sticky hands — HEEEE HAWWWW, HEE HAW!!! Oooohhhhhhhhhhh… he did it. Yikes, I’ve been gooed by a 4 yr old. Oh well, just another days work. I’ll get over it.”

Meanwhile, a few moments later — when she thought no one was watching — our little Sweet Pea started licking off all the sticky, gooey, and YUMMY ice-cream. She tried to keep the “I’m way above this sort of thing” look, but she couldn’t pull it off. The corners of her soft muzzle turned ever so slightly upward as she enjoyed the fringe benefits of dessert-laden children wanting to reach out and show her their love.

Stay tuned for more Animal Tales!

Whoaaah there, partner!

That’s why I’m a bit smaller than other horse breeds, but also why I’m sooooo…. FAST! Well, enough about me. You know, people get kind of concerned about you little boys and girls, but I’m going to let you in a little secret… sometimes parents do the silliest things. So, a while back, we were at a lovely birthday party. Christian brushed me and groomed my mane, and Charlie tacked me up (that means he put my saddle on and other equipment) so could start giving rides.

“And that’s when it happened.” Read More
