Guard dog

Each morning Simon plants himself on the front patio and keeps watch over Windy Ridge.   He just sits for hours and watches.   In the distance you can see the noble steed grazing the north field.  Technically you probably couldn’t call our female donkey a steed, but everytime I see her scratching her butt on the chicken coop I can’t help but think, what a noble steed!
