LOTS of Photos for Donkey/Libbie Day!

There are some weeks where I just can't seem to get on good photo.. well this week I had too many!!! Love that -


SO I know first I know I had better show some baby donkey photos! Cali is a pure joy! She is really stunning - and very sweet. She still amazes me how independent she is - most babies are stuck right next to their Mom.. they move across the pen so does baby... but not Cali - if she gets hot and wants out of the sun, she leaves Mom and goes into the barn and lays down. Now once they move out of the Birth pen in a week or so we will see if that independence is still there -
Now this photo I loved, but almost didn't show it cuz her face is "dirty"... uh ya... but oh well I just loved Lacey's head over Cali's and well messy kids are part of life right?

Now many of you are probably asking where is the second baby? Well Vicki is still very pregnant - she put everything on hold this week - I guess she decided that she just wasn't ready to have the baby and share the spot light with Lacey and Cali - can't be to long now...
I asked her if she would please have it today for me.. and she said no not yet....LOL!
Now we needed Dad to come home from work Friday and save the barn door!.... he had to rescue the entrance to the barn as it was blocked by a fallen tree!!! So Dad and his "toy" ahem... important farm tool.... to the Rescue!!!
A large limb broke right in front of the barn door during the afternoon - the three stooges couldn't get in or out and it had really squashed a couple of the pens - So Dad came in with his tractor and pulled out the larger pieces and made sure everyone was safe. Notice how "afraid" the Donkeys are of the tractor... We have to be very careful when running the tractor in the pens... they run against it and some try and bite the moving tires! To them it is a big orange play toy that Dad is riding- we try and close them off anytime we need the tractor around.
Luckily today Dad could work safely on the outside of the pen... but he was fun to watch! You can see how big the limbs that broke are... really did a number on a few of the pipe fences... WOW really bent them up good!I got some other great photos but I think I am going to wait on those... other than a couple of Libbie photos I took this morning - where did my little puppy go?


ok, so she is still LITTLE, but the puppy has grown into a little girl...

Well hope you enjoyed my photos today - We are expecting rain today - might be what Vicki is waiting for... the cool front bringing the rain. If not I'll still be here waiting for her -
Hope you have a great Saturday, with wonderful fun plans!
HUGS and-
