Hello, I’m Rubí and this is my Rubí Tuesday blogue. Today we begins a portant series of blogues on Envirionmental Enrichiment – or how to make a more intresting place for a donk to be. Some peasants think an enrichied envirionment just involves plonking a crucifix in a meadow. We shall see there is more to it and we will show you how to form a donque action group.
Thanks to Morris donque, who has been researchering portant documents on the interwebby thing, we donques are now in possession of the Donkey Sanctuary advice on Envirionmental Enrichiment. From a donque mental wellbeing perspective this is the best thing the Donkey Sanctuary has ever produced.

On my Rubí Tuesday blogue in these next few weeks I will be taking you stage-by-stage through how to form an action group and help your donque keeper implement this portant doquement. The doquement looks like this:
Every donkey keeper should be aware of this helpful report and here in El Parral we invited our hermit-Peasant to a meeting. Morris donkey wanted to do this as a virtual meeting on Zoom, which seems very fashionable at the moment, but Matilde overruled this, understandably as she is part-Andalusian. She says, “It’s about time we smashed up all this technology which is responsible for the mess we are in.”
Aitana disagreed: she was looking forward to a Zoom meeting as she thought it would be another opportunity to be spotted on television and become a superfoal-celebrity on Love Island. “I wouldn’t regard any enrichment below 100,000 euros as worth getting out of bed for!” she said.
So we summoned the Peasant to the meeting in the stable and after setting out our demands for a more stimulilating envirionment we went take a look at the situation. At the end of the session, the Peasant fell asleep on the rubber tyre and buckets, thus proving our point.
So, the starting point must be this. Is a plastic bucket or a rubber tyre as stimulilating an envirionment as living in the wild in Africa? Obviously we don’t want an over-stimulilating envirionment. We’d prolly be better bored than eated by lions.
Something better than a rubber tyre and plastic buckets is what we is demanding in our action group.
Next week: Envirionmental Enrichiment Part 2: “Something more exciting than plastic buckets but not involving any lions.”
