Dusty

Who knew that donkeys like dust baths? I didn't, till I saw it with my own eyes.

 Going down!

He's really getting into it!

Must feel really good.

All refreshed now. Time for a gallop!


“The dust returns to the ground it came from,

    and the spirit returns to God who gave it.”
Ecclesiastes 12

“But your dead will live, Lord; their bodies will rise— let those who dwell in the dust wake up and shout for joy…”
Isaiah 26

I wonder what it is about the dust that they like rolling around in it. Enjoyed your photos.

I am a donkey lover, have even kissed one before, right between the eyes, and this one is soooooo cute... I have a photo somewhere from the past of a full size horse taking a dust bath. I was shocked when the lady said they all love dust rolling... maybe it is to help keep off the flies? what a great find, color me jealous

Mr. Jackson has two donkeys in his pasture - a mama and her baby. We love to watch them play and frolic!
