I met Dottie at the local watering hole today - it's literally a watering hole, see my other blog Survival Kitchen for a picture of said watering hole.

Dottie is a mule, she's only a couple of years old and apparently her coloring is highly unusual. I have a fancy for mules for some odd reason, ditto burrows and donkeys. I think it's the ears and the soulful face - and maybe the challenge for stubborness.
