Mr. W made a new hay feeder for the girls’ stall today.
It is just perfect for them.
However, it may take a while for Ruby and Gracie to research this matter and realize that this feeder is perfect for them.
You see, Donkeys are smart… very smart. You may have always heard that donkeys are stubborn. Soooo not true. They just have to take awhile to decide that a situation is safe, and will not cause harm to them.
Therefore, we cannot take a bite of hay from this feeder until we figure it all out.
Sniff… sniff… think, think, think. Hmmmm, have to use great caution here. This contraption may spray out some fly goop (we hate fly spray). Or… perchance… something evil may hurl out at us…
Backing out of the stall…
Retreat!! This unidentified object has not been deemed safe yet!! It’s a trick!! Run for your life!!
Having removed themselves from the “potentially harmful situation”, the girls now discuss the matter.
I predict that tonight Ruby and Gracie will finally reach the conclusion that the new feeder isn’t gonna bite :)
