Donkey Day - 4-24-2010

Zeppelin is slowly calming down day by day. He takes treats from me, lets me touch his face a little bit and doesn't flinch when I pass him while carrying hay or pulling the wagon. He still doesn't like being touched though. I haven't done any clicker training with him because I've been so busy (job change). I took these pictures last night just sitting in the barn with them watching the rain. :)

"You can't see me . . ."

Keeping his ear on me.

Look at Chrome eating out of the hay bucket on the other side of the fence. Dork.

I promise I will start working with them. I just need time to get things sorted out and some motivation lol.


  1. Sounds like he is making progress though. He has let you touch him a little. Donkeys learn is stages. Your making progress and that is good.

  2. Love the photos :) I agree with the comment above, it's great progress that he is allowing you near to touch a little. Sometimes just the daily interactions with them achieves so much :)

  3. Zep is busy getting the lay of the land. I doubt he misses that Chrome gets treats for doing stuff. He'll get there too.
