Barney + Donkey!

Barney + Donkey!
The naughty youngster with its head through the fence had nipped Barney on the bottom a few minutes before I took this shot! Poor Barney was quite shocked though completely unharmed - the donkey hadn't been at all aggressive, just overly curious and a bit nibbly (it wanted to nibble our clothes and bags too!).

He'd never met donkeys until the day I took this but treated the same way he treats horses - calm indifference. He's spent some time round horses as my step-mum used to keep a couple of ponies at a local livery yard and we sometimes visited them with her. Barn was initially keen on the idea of herding and nipping them but as I didn't want him to get kicked in the head (or cause an accident) I trained him out of it and he's now very well behaved. If they want to say hello, he'll give them a quick sniff on the nose but otherwise totally ignores them.
