Howdy, stranger

Who SAYS my village is just a one horse town?! (The American idiom is defined here.) This morning, in the quiet of Shabbat in our hill-top moshav, I was surprised to hear a clip-clop of hoofs. I ran outside and saw four strangers riding down our street!


The mysterious strangers smiled and the beautiful horses walked on by. Sigh . . .
I love horses almost as much as I love donkeys.
And today is International Day of the Donkey. Good Samaritan Donkey Sanctuary (where I volunteered and lived a month in Australia) had a big field day today.
My other T shirt, "Donkey Warhol," is from Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land. Heehaw!

Take a look at other animals today on blogs all over the world at Camera-Critters.

Love the shot of the cars with the horses - kinda makes a statement of sorts!
The donkey shirt is cute.

hehehehe - they call my area a "one horse town" too. What a neat sight... it seems we both decided to share horses this week.

a donkey sanctuary - the way life is going here, donkeys are becoming a dying breed, whereas in the past, they used to be the only means of transport!

Dina: I guess you're a 4 horse town. I didn't know a donkey had it's own day. Cool shots.

Happy International Day of the Donkey. If I had known that ahead of time, I would have posted my donkey image that I have been saving for some unknown reason other than life happening around us. I'm sure you will see him in the months to come as we head into winter and I am searching for something to share.

Faye Pekas said...

Yep, looks like a 4 horse town to me :) Horses are indeed handsome critters.

I am a big fan of donkeys too. They’ve been a great friend to humanity over the years, and deserve a fair bit of recognition for our achievements too. That’s why the donkey sanctuaries deserve everyone’s support.

Dina said...

Thank you, all, for your nice input.
Donkeys of the world, unite!
