Best Wild Burro Day EVER
Best Wild Burro Day EVER
Yesterday we took a day trip and went to an area in California were we have seen wild burros before. Usually we see a handful, groups of 2 or 3 at a time. But yesterday, was awesome. We saw several bands of 5-7 burros and every band had a baby burro. I LOVE baby burros, they are impossibly cute and fluffy.
The first band we saw had 6 or 7 burros. They were running all around, and one of the jacks was braying like I’ve never heard before. Holy cow they can be loud. I spotted a mom with a baby burro, and watched to see what they were going to do.
She was being chased like the other burros, and the little one was doing a great job of staying out of the way.
The two of them ran towards me, while the rest of them veered off and stopped a short distance away. Mom and baby stopped in front of me, and calmed right down. The little one nursed, then relaxed in the sandy wash.
I can’t stand the cuteness! As you can imagine I took a thousand photos of this little cutie.
I’m fairly sure this was a girl baby burro. I didn’t see any boy parts, and she acted timid like a girl would. I can almost always tell with the horses if they are male or female, anatomy aside, by the way they behave.
They have such tiny feet!
We eventually left them to enjoy their day, after thanking them profusely for the wild burro treat. The band that was with her hadn’t gone far, so we went to see what they were all about.
I’ve never seen a burro without a white nose before, never mind a black one like this one had. Gives them a whole different look I thought.
I’m all ears!
We continued up into the hills and found a few together. This guy was pretty curious. Check out the burro reflection in his eye.
On our way back out of the canyon we found another pretty good size band, with another baby. These guys had all the colors. From almost white, to very dark.
They ended up on this ridge, which was farther away than I liked but made for a cool shot.
We saw one other band with a little one but they were way too far away to photograph, and on a really steep hillside.
No matter, it was the best wild burro day EVER!
I will definitely have some new images up on my website too. Everyone loves the burro images.
Happy little chappies…… has to be fun to watch :-)
M A R Y ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! OK, you know me and horses, but BURROS tickle my heart! Gosh you got good photos and what a treat indeed! The one with the black nose made me chuckle; he looks as if he put his nose in a pool of mud, or chocolate cake! LOL – and the babies. GOOD GLORY they are so dang cute and those ears remind me of when you crack open a coconut!!!! Joy, joy, joy.
Wow, they are just adorable critters. Awesome collection of photos. I wish you and your family all the best in 2020, Happy New Year!Have a happy day and new week ahead!
What fun!! They are so cute, and pose so well for their photos! I did not realize they came in those different colors – the white one is quite pretty.
