Many Faces of Orphan Andy

Our Orphan Andy is just the best little donkey. He has a personality as big as the world. I just wish he could speak in human words because he would have so much to impart to us. Our feelings are strong as he lost his lovely mom at 20 days old and we have loved […]

It’s All About Cowboy

Our January has been dark, gloomy and cold. That means I go into hibernation and for the most-part and begin my ritual of spring cleaning inside the house and poor cowboy takes care of everything outside in the cold! With the cold weather comes extra responsibility such as mucking the donkey and goat barns, spreading fresh hay […]

Donkey’s Grazing

Here are a few headshots of the little donkey’s. They have been enjoying grazing green grass in our corral. We use water sprinklers at night so the donkey’s and goats will have a little green grass. Our pastures have been very dry this summer and this is a nice treat for them. Patty and Lilly […]

Lucy Lu Is A Deep Thinker

Lucy Lu is one of my original donkey’s and we adore her. Lucy wants and needs attention and certainly knows how to demand it. For the most part she would protect any of the crew including the goats, but that old jealously really gets to her sometimes and she always lets Cowboy and I know […]

Donkey “Babies” Doing Great

This summer brought a few changes for all our babies. Orphan Andy, Annie, Charlie and Lily have all had growth spurts! Their coats have also changed colors and all four are becoming beautiful and fun. The weather has been brutally hot this last month so we have started giving them lots of “baths” and water time. […]

New Mexico Really Is Enchanted

Growing up I used to visit my grandmother in New Mexico. She was Dean of Women at New Mexico State University. We traveled to see our “Momo” every summer and those times are filled with very happy memories. She was a wonderful grandmother and our times were treasured when visiting New Mexico. New Mexico holds […]

Drum Roll…The New Girls Have Names!

I know what all of you are thinking…how long does it take to name two new donkey’s? I am the first to admit that I have had a really hard time deciding on names. I had a huge list thanks to all of you who submitted names. I posted the list on the fridge and […]

Busy Birthday Month

May is always busy for Cowboy and me. We both have May birthdays. There is Mother’s Day followed by our anniversary. Father’s Day comes in June so we have lots of events in a small time frame. A few years ago we started having one family dinner to celebrate all of these events and it […]

Two More…Really?

Can you believe it? We have 2 new residents at farm. They were dumped at our place which is so madding and really very sad. I just do not understand having a lovely animal and dumping it on a country road with the possibility of getting hit by a truck. What are people thinking? I […]

Andy, Annie & Charlie

Thought you all would like a baby donkey update today! The baby donkey’s are doing so well and we are enjoying them so very much. Some of you know and some don’t that we were not trying to have any baby donkey’s. My three girls were just fine and life was good. Then early last […]

Fuzzy Charlie

This was taken a few weeks ago of Charlie and his mom. Charlie has all his winter “fuzzy” going on! He is really a cute mess! We are crazy about him, but he is a little off-ish. Andy and Annie are super friendly and love all of our attention. Charlie… is a little more hesitant. […]
