    :p

    I got a package in the mail a few weeks ago. It was something I didn't have to sign for but when the mailman pulled up, he's a new guy on this route, he honked his horn so I went down the long drive to see what he wanted. Well, of course, Mils in her pasture and follows me down cuz, ya know, she is nosey. :cool: :p

    So he hands me the package and starts talking about "my horse". Err, she's a Mule :D
    Not a horses. Oh really, he says and then he starts telling me about when he was a kid and his dad had a mule. He tells me that someone else on the route has a Donkey and he is so glad to see that my horse, errr, Mule has such nice grass to eat, the Donkey doesn't. So we talk about how Donkeys are desert animals and don't need all that grass, dry lots are fine for them.

    We end our conversation and as he's walking back to the car, he turns and asks: Does she eat carrots? I go, Sure, what horse, errr, Mule doesn't ?

    Every mail delivery day since then, inside of my box and on top of the mail,

    is a carrot.

    Both the FED-EX and UPS drivers up in DD's area carry dog treats, so their dog lies in wait everyday now for one of them to show up! She's an excellent "watch" dog and knows what time to start waiting:rofl:

    Manes, if your mail is like ours, mostly junk, Millie's getting the best part of the delivery!

    How sweet!

    Our mail lady doesn't give the critters anything, but she does give us Christmas cards, which I think is very thoughtful :)

    Aww! Love stories like this!! REminds me that despite all the ignorant #^$%&#$&*#'s out there there are still some good, truly decent humans. No matter how few and far between.

    That is the sweetest thing ever! I wish we had a mailman like that, but none of ours care about the critters people have. Oh well, I think I spoil all of mine enough.
