I introduced Mabel a few posts ago! Oh my, she has stolen our hearts and we are loving her more each day. She has learned her name and comes to us sometimes, but only when she wants to socialize. She really is a special animal… Love this shot of Mabel on the hill. Oh Mabel, […]
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 […]
Love this girl against the hills and sky. Such a simple photo, yet I love her silhouette against the blue sky.
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 […]
I was gone this last week and came home to find my sweet goat, Steve, had passed away. He was very young and I was so sad because he was Orphan Andy’s best friend…. It is always hard. Really hard. Cowboy said it was very touching that the day Steve woke up really sick the donkey’s all stayed right […]
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 […]
Love her expression and wonder what she was thinking. It is like she was taking care to make a good pose for me. You just never know. She had her calf the next day so now she is a busy mom.
Yesterday was a day full of mixed blessings. I will not be sharing how everything proceeded, but I am so very happy to tell you that I was able to find our sweet Blanco and Jeff. When I drove to pick-up destination I was greeted by two happy goats. They immediately gave me more nudges and kisses than any one person […]
Andy is adorable!. Look how much he is growing. We continue to be thankful for his foster family…
Our sweet donkey, Amy, had a baby last Sunday. She delivered a precious little foal who is so very pretty and different from the other two. How nice to have three babies who all have their own special look. This is Amy’s baby at about four hours old. Amy is our oldest donkey and she […]
Cute, cute, cute! I can hardly stand it. We have a second little baby donkey. Lucy gave birth to her first little baby (courtesy of the jack who was dumped at our place!). Lucy is being such a great first time mom and not letting anything or anybody near her baby. Mama, who was not […]
Here is Miss Amy who really is such a sweet girl. I cannot wait until I am able to get back walking on both feet and go give her a good brushing. She loves to be brushed and pampered. We are head over heels in love with her…
