This guardian burro, on the King-Vaughan Townline between Keele and Jane Streets, is usually very dutiful and is always standing at attention when I see it, but it seems to have decided that there was no threat to its horses on this very cold morning, with the thermometer reading -16C. It seemed determined to ignore me until I stepped on some snow and ice and noisily slid into the steep roadside ditch. That made its ears perk up as he turned to give me a requisite glance.
