Weekly Photo Challenge: Face

WM Donk


“Curiosity is a sign of courage,” my
trainer said, hushing my correction.
Enthusiastic praise for my colt
chasing her dog along a fence line.

I’m older now than my trainer was
then, but this longear’s weathered
and wind-burnt face is donkey years
older than both of us. Undeniable, I

recognize that eye and the courage
required to approach a predator with
brisk steps, ears flat, and jaw wide
open in a toothless screaming bray.

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)


This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.
