Leroy/ Camera Critters

Leroy on a farm just east of East Gwillimbury

The day I met Leroy he was being bullied by a jealous horse who wanted me to take his photo rather than the donkey's. Hmmm. But, as it turns out, Leroy is the real KING of the paddock and no one should push him too far. Leroy's hooves are powerful!

Look at all the burrs on Leroy's face!

Sometimes asses can be very difficult...usually, though, it's the horses that push them around...I think.

With all those burrs, may this chap is a burro?

Cute shot, EG.

Have a great weekend!

I've heard the expression, mule kick. He does need to be respected.

Good-looking jack, Leroy is.

I love donkeys. The farm behind us has several and you can hear them 'talking' some nights.

Leroy obviously knows he's being photographed and is posing beautifully! What a handsome chap - we love the jaunty slant of his ears, he he he! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Leroy might like to meet Mr. Burro that I posted today. Very cute shot!

Tom said...

I do not see many Donkeys as I used to see... which is a shame as like Leroy they normally have loads of character

Leroy is definitely a handsome dude.

Rose said...

I have never had any experience with donkeys...a friend of my brother had a mule however and its name was D*@$ It...so that tells you something about its attitude. It was always a pain to catch.

judi said...

so that is where mules get their kick!

I have enjoyed all the beautiful photos you have taken lately but Leroy, he's pretty special. What a face to fall in love with and he's feisty too.
