Pedicures for Donkeys

Donkey and Sable were treated to a pedicure this past Saturday. I don't know what else to call it. They had their hooves cleaned, clipped, and filed, so to me, they had a pedicure. I'm not saying they enjoyed the procedure, but they sure felt better afterward. Sable was prancing around, and Donkey had a big smile on his face. Perhaps they were just glad it was over. Andy & Cody (farriers/Value Shod 540-718-1503 Madison, VA) handled them beautifully. Even though the guys were gentle and friendly, the donkeys knew who they were. They saw `em coming and took off. Once Andy & Cody finally captured them, it was a breeze. The only thing missing was the nail polish. What? No nail polish for donkeys? Oh well... I guess that means no bows either.

The man in the camo pants is my husband, Tom, and you can tell by the smile on his face that he thought pedicures for donkeys was pretty cool. I do, too. What about you?

I had to check this one out, Ann! Thought it was a joke, but no, really about donkeys! We have a farm a couple miles from us that has what I think are burros. Or very small donkeys that remind me of ponies. Very cute! My dog loves them; we have to drive by slowly with the window open so she can dream about playing with them!
