Along the way, we met a baby hinny and his father. A hinny has a horse (stallion) as his father and a donkey (jennet) as his mother. The baby would not leave his father's side. It was the cutest thing you've ever seen.
The hinny spotted me and became very curious. But still, he didn't want to leave his father's side.
The stallion finally became aware of my presence and came to check me out.
The hinny happily followed suit. He trotted straight to me.
He stayed and watched me for a long time, not realizing that his father had since left.
As soon as he realized that his father was no longer interested in me (maybe because I was not bearing gifts), the baby hinny reluctantly followed his father.
I stayed for a while longer, probably a little too long. The hinny became a little apprehensive and sought protection from his father. How cute is that face? It's clear that he feels perfectly safe now.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
