This morning the phone rang & I learned from a neighbor that Boaz was "out & about", headed down the road towards the driveway gate. Well at least he was hanging around the neighborhood.
John was already outside, so I yelled at him hopefully so he could get out to the gate & open it before Boaz came by.
He got out there & when he opened the gate, Boaz literally picked up the pace to get thru it, so I guess being out wasn't as much fun as he thought it would be. I thought he'd come to me for security, but when I called him, he picked up the pace even more, made a wide berth around me, & went to find the other donkeys. Hmmmm........guess I know where I rate now. LOL
Yesterday Jewel the black horse visiting with her new friends went to a new home. Patti had been trying to find a good home for her for quite sometime & one finally showed up. It was a day trip away, so she asked if Joyce, another friend & I wanted to go. Of course we did, so I left John with chores & off we went.
After we delivered Jewel we wandered all over Cochise County, Douglas, lunch at the Gadsden Hotel, Bisbee to look at the Lavender Pit, & Tombstone, just for a "drive-thru", Did stop for ice cream in Benson, of course by this time, I was pretty sure John was already doing evening chores, so why hurry, right? LOL He wasn't done when I got home, so I didn't completely escape.
