Nice donkey people were at the Rochester Fair in New Hampshire last weekend. We attended the Mule and Donkey Show. Super-groomed donkeys ran, walked or balked the obstacle courses and I was in heaven.
My favorite was Pedro. Pedro did what donkeys do before they're trained to step into 'bottomless' plastic swimming pools, jump over window boxes filled with fake bushes or walk through scary dangly stuff.
He said no, don't think so. He walked around nearly every obstacle. His young trainer tried hard to be patient. All, however was not lost. For some donkey reason, he jumped over the final bar like a champion. We all cheered.
