Camera Critters 9

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

I saw two donkeys in a field and decided to take their picture. This was the baby following his mother.
The mother was going to train the baby.
She said follow me and see what I do.
She had a good old time rolling in the dust and coating her fur to keep the bugs off.
The baby learned and did it also.
Mom said that's enough and walked away.
Animals are just wonderful.

Yes animals sure are wonderful. I have my desk in front of my window just to watch my neighbors horses across the street. I love it when they run around the yard it is a most beautiful sight.Great pictures of the donkeys I never knew that they rolled in the dirt to keep off the bugs. I just thought they did it to scratch their backs DUH ME!

"Animals are just wonderful." Yes indeed, and donkeys are the most wonderful of all animals.
Whenever I spent hours grooming and cleaning donkeys they would always go straight to the dust bath.
Love the pictures and your commentary.

Dina said...

I love donkeys! They're such funky guys...not handsome like horses, but unique. We used to have some on our ranch. Great photos! I love them rolling in the dirt.

Donkeys played an important role in Biblical times - and will always be valuable to Man.

Dancin' Fool said...

Excellent shots of the donkeys, and a dust bath looks so good.

Jack and Joann said...

I can't imagine humans taking dust baths but those donkeys sure seem to like it. Last May in Teddy Roosevelt National Park Jack and I saw huge bison taking dust baths. Did you end up with a dusty camera lens?

babooshka said...

Donkeys are very amusing and useful little animals. Pappy

Salty said...

This is so cool! The donkeys are really kicking up some dust! It has been so wet around here that a donkey would have to roll in the mud.

Our 'gills are in full spawn now. I spent all morning yesterday on the lake. Along with a nice catch I spotted a mature bald eagle but it spotted me first and I never got the camera into play.

MyGoodFinds said...

It's wonderful to watch mommy and baby animals. Cool photos and captions that tell a story.

Fun Post! Cheers, Klaus

Hi just found your blog from Dina's Jerusalem Hills Photo Blog. Love the Donkey pics. In my area there is a problem with coyotes killing livestock. A local cattle farm put some Donkeys in their pastures. I heard it was to scare off the coyotes. Don't know if it really works or not.

Loved your post about the rivers too.

The Birdlady said...

Those are so cute...

Aunt "B's" Backyard said...

That is so darn cute!!

Kim said...

Whenever we give my aunt's horses a bath they immediately go roll in the dirt. They just like it like that :)

Anita said...

I just love donkeys... And you pictures are wonderful!

the teach said...

Fishing guy, I woulodn't have known what they were doing! Now I will! :D

lingovise said...

if we had the room we would totally add a couple of donkeys to the little petting zoo we call home. They have the sweetest dispositions :)

Really fun shots!

Dina said...

Hey Fishing Guy, I just read all your scary stories from Oct. 2007. Phew, sure glad you survived them.

Old Wom Tigley said...

Great pictures. Hope you like the joke..

The Preacher's Donkey

A man bought a donkey from a preacher. The preacher told the man that this donkey had been trained in a very unique way, (being the donkey of a preacher). The only way to make the donkey go, was to say, "Hallelujah!" The only way to make the donkey stop, was to say, "Amen!"

The man was pleased with his purchase and immediately got on the animal to try out the preacher's instructions. "Hallelujah!" shouted the man. The donkey began to trot. "Amen!" shouted the man. The donkey stopped immediately. "This is great!" said the man. With a "Hallelujah," he rode off very proud of his new purchase.

The man traveled for a long time through some mountains. Soon he was heading toward a cliff. He could not remember the word to make the donkey stop. "Stop," said the man. "Halt!" he cried. The donkey just kept going. "Oh, no... Bible!....Church!...Please Stop!!" shouted the man. The donkey just began to trot faster. He was getting closer and closer to the cliff edge. Finally, in desperation, the man said a prayer. "Please, dear Lord. Please make this donkey stop before I go off the end of this mountain, In Jesus name, AMEN."

The donkey came to an abrupt stop just one step from the edge of the cliff.

"HALLELUJAH!", shouted the man.
