El Burro… No it’s a Mule

This sweet-natured animal was braying and pacing the edge of a pasture near Independence, Kansas yesterday. Dunno if he was hungry, lonely or bored but when I walked over to visit he seemed grateful for the attention and thoroughly enjoyed having his cheeks stroked.

    What kind of “snacks” to you carry in that knapsack Dave? Horses like apples, but I don't know about Burros – surely it's not a “burrito”.
    I like this face to face, great shot.
