I had a wonderful day visiting with my pal, Elsie, and her herd. We can certainly talk a day away! It is so interesting spending time with some other donkeys. There is a manner … a nature that donkeys have that is very similar. So much of their language is somehow the same – even in different herds. I like being able to see how Elsie cares for her fur babies. There are always new tips to pick up. On the way there and home again I took the scenic route through Marlbank and Tweed. Spring is certainly making itself felt. I even discovered a pair of nesting swans on one of the marshes down our road. Wow!
