Nope they are not.
He is not even one year old yet.
Today we were working on our manners [which he is pretty good at!]. Part of our work each time consists of picking up the feet one at a time and letting me pick them out...or just hold onto them.
[this really helps later on in life when he has grown big!]
Today he decided that I wasn't going to pick up his back feet.
Did he kick?
He simply laid down in protest.
What did he find out?
I could sit on him and still do his feet.
He didn't struggle, just watched me curiously.
He's going to make a fine riding donkey when he grows up.
Soon we are going to start on leading.
Not just regular leading...he can do that.
Leading down the trails in the woods.
I figure this summer he can learn to accompany me on my hikes and carry things for me ... after all he is still just shy of a year old.
Good boy Eddie.
