How does a donkey deal with a hurricane? Yesterday, Simon was at the feeding Ben when a huge, window-rattling gust of wind from Sandy – the strongest of the day – came blowing across the pasture. It blew the hay right out of the feeder and sent the sheep running for the pole barn. Simon simply lowered his head right into the wind and kept it there until it died down. He was almost staring it down, daring it to keep coming. It stopped. He got the hay off the ground and ate it.
