When your best friend is an ass (literally!)

So, Finney the pony and Saul the donkey are the best of buddies, and Saul LOVES to whack Finney with stuff... rubber feed pan, horse ball, whatever. And Finney loves to be whacked!

So here are 10,000 of the 40,000 shots I took the other night (I may be exaggerating slightly!)

Their facial expressions crack me up!

Saul has two feet off the ground. He's really getting into it!

"Don't hit me with that thing."
"Aww come on!"

"How about I just push it against you?"
"Come on, just a bit!"

"Well, that does feel kind of nice!"

"WTF? Hey! You bastard!"

"Dude, watch the mane! I have a date with Ella tonight!"

"Sorry little man, I only have eyes for Roo. I like a REAL horse!"

"Bahahaha! She shut you down, buddy!"

"Hey boys, I'm available!"

"Big blonde and beautiful, that's me."

"I'll pay for the hay!"

"Fine, you bastards..."

"Oh well, what are you doing tonight?"

"Bashing you with the pan, bro!"

"Dude! Stings!"

"Hey! HEY!"

"Sorry man. I love you, dude."

"Boys. I'm still free tonight."


"Quick, let's go watch the goats ram each other off Goat Mountain."

"Don't hit me with that."
"I'm not!"
"Don't hit me!"
"Not hitting, just touching!"

  5. That was some show. I'm not sure what was going on and I'll bet the donkey had no Idea what was going on either.

  11. This post brought a big smile to my face and made me laugh out loud. It's like the little brother annoying the big sister. "Just leave me alone already!"

    Love your title on this one. So true! We have 2 donks and they play together in a way that the horses never do. Sheri
