I commented to Joanne on Lucy's markings which I thought were really unique. Then she told me the story that has been passed down about the markings on this kind of donkey. She talked about the biblical significance of both Mary and Jesus riding on donkeys. The story says that this same donkey went and stood at the cross of Jesus. The sun shone behind the cross and left the shadow of the cross on the donkey's back. Just a neat, fun little story.
The donkey and I. I know, I know. You want to know which is which. Ha ha. (Lucy was really into the whole self portrait thing with me. Can you tell?)
Donkeys really are stubborn. I loved the progression of these pictures.
