My new friend, Malka!
"THE HOME OF MALKA AND RACHEL" says the sign.
Last year the donkeys lived in the kibbutz olive grove, grazing on the underbrush and contributing manure fertilizer.
But this year they were spotted eating olives (!) so they were moved to their own paddock, at least until we harvest all the olives.
Nothing like a good dust bath on a hot day.
Yes, it's still hot and dry in Israel, despite it being "winter."
After she saw Malka roll over, Rachel had a go at it too.
Two donkey friends and a cloud of dust.
They are so sweet!
Gotta love donkeys.
