a life with donkeys

About

Rubí donkey

Things not to say to Rubí:

Was that supposed to be a bray or a bark?

Does my ass look fat in this?

Would you like to eat the chickens’ food now?

How exciting: you’re going to put on the Santa hats again!

Rubí donkey

I was born in stables alongside the restaurant La Piscina in Parcent where I spent the first three years of my life in the crowded sheds with donkeys, ponies and a mule. It was a worrying time because rumours always went around the sheds that we would all be eaten in the restaurant sooner or later, when the owner Paco ran out of wild boar to serve the mainly German tourist parties from the coast.

I think it was the constant anxiety of those days that made me into a bit of an Eeyore. But the weather is always going to be worse next week, so that is a very sensible attitude.

One day in 2010 the Peasant arrived with his daughter to select and buy two donkeys. He was looking for a big pure-breed Andalusian donkey and another any-old-donkey to be a companion for the favoured beast. So he bought me as the any-old-donkey, while he went off and continued looking for the prize Andalusian. I stayed in Parcent waiting to see what would happen next.

I always remember that Christmas as the last one when I didn’t have to wear a bluddy Santa hat.
