I also got a few photos of Irene with Rosie. Now that Patti and Irene have been in the other group pen for a week or so, she is a little more relaxed about letting Irene meet her new friends. I hope that Rosie and Irene will buddy up and be friends. They will spend a few years pastured together until they are both at least 3 years old and ready to be bred. You can see how big Irene is here, Rosie is 5 months old - Irene is almost 3 weeks old. (she is standing in a small hole too!) Rosie will be leaving this pen, with Lola and Lina from the other pen into a new pen which we will call our "young" pen in a month. All the babies that can't be in with the Jacks for a while. We will also put our very pregnant Moms in there to help protect these younger donkeys. Irene and Gloria will join them in about 5 months.
Well hope you enjoyed Donkey Saturday, and photographs of some of the babies. I have two classes to teach today at the LSS, better get my stuff together. Have a great Saturday and have time to craft!
