This is Darlene, with the newest bale in their pen. The one I showed last week that they were not allowed to have until they finished the first one. Well they have started up on the new one. Within a week it will be hollow and fall over. Now some asked last week if the two of the Donkeys were pregnant in that group shot. Yes, Darlene is one that is. She is due late Oct-early Dec. But even when she isn't pregnant... she looks like this. She is my kind of girl, really big boned... she has had a lot of babies in her life, and lots of weight gain. Her neck has fallen due to so much weight... but we still love her dearly. She is one of our first Donkeys. Our lead Momma, experienced, calm and loving to all of the babies in the pen.... as long as they don't try and take her feed - then she is scary! Diego my first baby is her son and Julio last years baby was hers as well. Can't wait to meet this years baby.
This is Annabelle, she is my other Mom to be for this winter. We have no idea when she is due. Could be next week, could be December. We didn't "plan" her pregnancy. And did not see her come into season and get bred. She is bred with Raffie, our spot. This is her first baby. I am always so nervous with new Moms. With Darlene, she has been there so many times, there is no panic. Oh I will still be there just in case their is a problem, but she is a Nurse all on her own. But first time Moms can really be spooked with birthing and bad things can happen. Like this last spring and Victoria's baby that we lost. So I will be on 24 our call when we think Annabelle is close. Hopefully she will show us some signs.... She is a sweet girl, as a young girl she was right in the middle of everything and first wanting the love and attention. Since being pregnant she is more off on her own... and standing to the back of the pack waiting patiently for the attention. Odd how fast she grew up and changed but I guess pregnancy changes a lot.... Love this photo of her out in the pasture... her tail was blowing in the breeze.
Ok... I know I showed Lina last week and I try and show different ones each week and spread the love ya know. But I got this one of Lina and just had to share it. Can't you hear her? "HELLO..... Please come and pet me!!!" She is one sweet baby......
Well I am moving slow this morning... got in last night from my crop about 12:30. I am going in today around 2 or 3 and it goes until midnight again.... And I was so tired from my insane day yesterday I didn't get a lot done. You see, besides helping Hubby put in Insulation in the addition, and repairing fencing yesterday - I ran around like a crazy person trying to save food! I came thru the kitchen and nearly fell on my you know what when I slipped on a huge puddle of water yesterday afternoon. Where did the water come from you ask... My refrigerator. Yep, my freezer was thawing all over my floor. Wasn't working at all. Horrible mess. But thankfully the fridge was still working. As the lights still worked I know it wasn't the plug... So I panicked moved what I could save into my chest freezer and MIL's freezer. Called the repair center. Soonest they can get here is Wednesday....great. Two hours later went to get Hubby a drink out of the fridge...it was warm. Yep it stopped working too. We moved it out to clean behind it (don't want the repair man to think I never do that you know LOL) Moved it back in to place and guess what, they are both working again. But I am not falling for it - I will not put all the food back in until I know it isn't going to do it again, and I am going to go ahead and have the repair center come out and check it.
Well have a great Saturday and craft something!
