It is the very last day of the summer holiday and I am back to work tomorrow. Fine timing. I opened the second slope for the donkeys to descend to Level 2, and see whether they would start doing circuits. Within minutes they joyfully started galloping around the circuit. This makes all the summer work worthwhile!
All captured on video, and the amazing sight of the plodding plump Rubí suddenly turning on the rocket boosters and galloping is quite surreal. Matilde rounds off her first circuit with a full-throated bray.
I have closed Level 2 off now and put them back on Level 1 as there a few safety points to tidy up on the new double bend descent, and a few areas where more tree protection is needed on Level 2.
Ten weeks full-time work on the donkey arrangements! It has been a marathon. Now the follow up work is for weekends. The donkeys’ obvious enjoyment of the space, as seen in the video, makes all the work worthwhile!
Thanks to regular readers of the blog for keeping up your visits and comments. Back to school tomorrow. It may go a bit quiet for a while. Unless Rubí chooses to give us her Tuesday wisdom…
