  1. Look’s like he’s walking your lines 🙂

  2. I’m sure a hard working donkey feels tthe effects of hat job for a long time afterward!

  3. Great Blue post! Have a terrific Monday!

  4. I wish it had more to think about or more freedom after a day’s work. Donkeys and mules get bored if they have no stimulation.

  5. A hard working animal !!!

      Thanks for stopping by. I know this beast looks small, but she really is a mule, not a donkey. No donkey would be able to pull the covered wagon (which you can’t see in the photo) that she and her partner are expected to pull across the United States. For that, you need the stamina and surefootedness of a mule. 🙂

  6. She’s probably not remembering with much joy…

    Waiting for Wheat Seed

  7. I never knew the difference between a mule and a donkey; thanks for teaching me!

    That sky is blue-tiful! Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  8. sorry, but I can’t get beyond that poor tethered beast….

  9. THe farmer and his donkey walk a lonely path together. Nicely MMT!
