For the first time on Tuesday evening, Gracie let me rub her back until my arms got tired. After that, I figured last night was a good time to try taking things one step further by brushing her.

By Gracie, she got it!

Good girl, Gracie!

I talked to her the whole time and told her how beautiful she is:

And how proud of her we are:

I also had to explain to her that she’s now joining the ranks of those at Morning Bray Farm who love to be brushed.

Witness Patrick. He came over and backed right up so that I would brush his butt:

And lookee here. Buckaroo too:

And, as if all that wasn’t exciting enough, Don’s been working with Nigel on his feet:

It’s all for the love of donkeys! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
