Old men only

After residing at Apifera for a week, the old donkey has begun a morning routine. He starts out in the lower field, sunning, then wanders up to the barn when he hears me leave the house. He has taken to the cool, dusty floored enclosed area I call the "Clubhouse". Only now the by laws of the Clubhouse have been rewritten with the following addendum: Donkeys entering Clubhouse must be at least 20 years of age. Younger donkeys must only stick their noses in. Shepherdess is allowed in if she presents ginger snaps to residing donkey. He sticks his tongue out after he drinks, however, he might have been sending Paco a message.

He could be sending Paco a message or Cracker Jack's spring for his tongue is loose. You know, due to his age and tough life and all. Now that I'm half a century old I've noticed a few of my springs are looser, too!

Thank you for the lavender and posting photos of the oldest donkey now in residence.

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
