It is Thanksgiving - and we have some Pavo... that is Spanish for Turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
It is also the name of Darlene and Black Jack's NEW SON!!!!! Yes in the middle of the night last night Darlene gave birth to a gorgeous dark nosed little...scratch that... big baby boy!
He is adorable.. then again are any of them not? He is a bit timid, most of Darlene's babies are the first Day as she is extremely protective of her kids. She lets us love on him a minute or two then she pushes him away. After a day or so she will relax some. But we still get in there and rub on him and love on him so he will know us and not be afraid of us. Photos were hard to get this morning as it is extremely foggy and misting... but I did get a few to show off!
Don't you just love that dark nose? That is compliments of his Daddy Black Jack... a handsome stud.
I love this photo, this was really early this morning, and is about as close as Darlene lets Pavo get to the other donkeys... here you see Jazz, Macie and Cheyenne at the edge of the Momma Pen getting to see Pavo for the first time. You can really see how misty and foggy it was here this morning.
Well I need to get lunch on.. Turkey breast are in the oven, dressing is ready to go in next. Now I just need to vaccuum and pick up a few things and set the table. I hope those in the US have a great Thanksgiving Day - and for the thing I am Thankful For...(we have to all say one thing in the past year that we are thankful for you know) I have the obvious things, gorgeous healthy babies, my family but my one thing this year would be all of the wonderful blogging friends I have made this past year with my blog - you know I love each and every one of you!
