Good Donkey Morning -

Well I was out early this morning to get some photographs of the donkeys. It was so fun to just stand and watch. We let Jazz and Gloria into the "big" pen with some of the other donkeys yesterday. Gloria just knows she is a big girl now! But she is still so tiny compared to everyone else. She is 2 weeks old, time flies huh? I love this photo of hubby with the "group". Take a look at Lola behind him.... one second later she was on his back and he was in the dirt. She thinks this is very funny, he did too when she was as tiny as Gloria, but now she is really too big for this. I told him to not let her do that but "it was cute then" I laughed this morning ... he didn't.
This is one of my favorite photographs from this morning. Gloria just loves "Daddy". She follows him all around the pen. Wish you could see how fast she was moving behind him, and how fast her tail was wagging.






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!

HUGS and-
