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.
