I thought perhaps a toy might distract Beamer from his sometimes destructive behavior, so I bought him a Jolly Ball. Seemed rather pricey, but considering the fact that it’s made for horses and is supposed to be indestructible, I spent the $20 bucks.
Beamer digs… not just little holes you could step into and twist your ankle. No, huge holes that you wouldn’t want to fall into without a passport in your pocket. He’s been naughty too, like dismantling the automatic drinker in his pen and adjoining, then chewing everything to bits except the bowl. If that’s not bad enough, two weeks ago he bit me in the ass which left me an attractive purple hickey the size of a salad plate.
Beamer is obviously bored. The indestructible Jolly Ball seemed like the perfect answer, and it was, briefly. It lasted twice as long than it would have taken me to feed the $20 bucks into a paper shredder.
Beamer destroyed the indestructible Jolly Ball, and although it was flat as a pancake, I couldn’t bring myself to throw it away. I decided to make Beamer a new toy, and hung it from a lead rope in his pen… now I need a new lead rope.
If only donkeys were this easy…
