Measure for Measure

Donkey Crossing

I saw a donkey on Thursday. Here he is:

I thought I would take the opportunity to see if donkeys really do have a cross on their back, so I held my camera over him, and hey, yes at least this one does.

Legend has it that the cross appeared on the donkey’s back after Jesus rode it into Jerusalem, and a shadow of a cross appeared on donkeys’ backs from then on.

I doubt it.

But I was pleased to see it there anyway.

  1. I’ve never heard that legend.

    Sweet donkey 🙂

  2. I didn’t know that one. I have friends that have a pet donkey who is tall so I never noticed. Down the road, there is a farm that has miniature donkeys and there are a few babies. I almost ran off the road admiring how cute all the miniature donkey and horse babies were. I’ll have to see if the miniature donkeys have a cross.

  3. Donkeys across the road from us. Gotta go check. What kind of temptation can I give it that will entice it to come to the fence? Apple? Carrot? Clover? I am stumped. Maybe I should ask its owner?
