Seeing-Eye Donkeys

     Good Afternoon,
     Although March arrived today on the calendar, winter weather is expected to prevail into next week.  Trying to remain optimistic about a warm-up in the air and in my attitude, I constantly search for signs of hope around the farm.  Lately, I haven't had to look far passed the wooden fence outside my back door.  
     Failing eyesight has forced our 29 year old gelding, Sandi, (Just A School Horse), to adapt to a world gone dark.  Watching him learn to compensate is an inspiration to me.  Failure to accept this change in his life is simply not an option.  Therefore, he has had to rely on guidance from our two young donkeys, Bing and Frankie, (Whinnies of Change), to show him the way.  
     Lately, it has become evident that the donkeys are even more aware of their role in Sandi's life.  Both Rod and I watch in awe as this relationship develops out of adversity.  Although it may be different for each of us struggling to survive an endless winter, there is a lesson to be learned from the following video.  Enjoy!
