The man and I are fortunate enough to work in places surrounded by lots of open space and ranches—we often see several different kinds of animals to, from (and during) work.
Because I work on equine publications, I have a special affinity towards farms, ranches, livestock, barns, etc…even though I really know nothing about any of it.
Rarely do the events of Chris’ day merge with mine—such is the case when your husband is a mechanical engineer and you’re a digital project manager.
However, today was an exception.
This is Xote, pronounced ‘Ho-TAY’ (as in Don Quixote, or Don’KEY’ Xote):
He is a donkey.
Also nearby is Snow-tay followed by his friend, Goat-tay:
And then there’s Kong.
As in ‘Donkey’ Kong (the man proudly named this one). We think he’s a bit sassy.
Reports are unconfirmed as to what kind of donkey Snow-tay is. Perhaps you know?
Note: the man wished me to clarify that these are not the confirmed proper names of these animals, but rather the names they have attributed to them.
