Gandolf was a glutton for attention and jealous that Sussi and the cats were allowed in the house and he was not. He did everything he could to try and find a way to get in. When the kids would go out to feed him and play with him, when Sinai and I would go out to be with him, he was always right behind us as we opened the glass doors to come back into the house. A few times he actually succeeded and there we were, with a two and a half year old donkey standing in our living room / dining room. It made us realize how very big he was.
Then one of us got the bright idea to pull the tress doors shut so we could have air and light, but not have to worry he would come through the screens. Well that was almost as smart. Gandolf finally solved the problem of not being included in the family gatherings INSIDE the house by trying to poke his head through the plastic tressim ... and broke enough of them in the process to be able to get his head in, like a window.
Sussi generally kept him company at these times. There are no words describe our reaction the day he did this, but suffice to say it was a memorable experience.
