We are still feeding Alfalfa to the youth pen once or twice a week - mainly just for Rosie, but they all get some it is just too hard to separate her out to feed her, plus the others just don't eat it like she does - she loves it! If you look close at Rosie.. the first one on the right, she is smiling.. well she looks like it anyway - :0)
Gloria was more interested in the the fresh water - we wash and fill their buckets every evening - so they have clean water, they love the new water as it is cooler that what has been in the bucket all day. Look close here too... you can see her tongue is out and she is swishing the water around in her mouth.
Just after I snapped this photo of Gloria I heard another resident of our property. Nearly every evening we see this hummingbird whizzing around the tree in their pen. We think she has a nest in the tree - not that we would ever find it. But can you believe I got a photo of her? No zoom here.. just lifted my camera up from taking Gloria's photo and snapped!
Patti is such a sweet donkey - very slow and very loving. She also needs a toothbrush! LOL I had just rubbed the end of her nose, and this is how she said thank you.
Vicki... sigh - boy she has caused lots of lost sleep and stress - it was all false alarm. She just isn't ready yet to have this baby - Oh its coming and I don't think it is far off, but not today. I really think she is finding all of this pretty funny.
She is a beautiful donkey - I wouldn't worry so much if she hadn't lost her last baby - I sooooo want her to have a healthy baby this time! Now she looks really wide, but really she doesn't look as wide as she did, the baby is turned a bit now. Yes... this isn't as wide as she has been -
Wanted to show you how my apples are doing! I showed a photo weeks back of my baby apples - I think then I had 5 or 6 of them... now there are only 2 left. The tree is very small, like 4 feet tall and seriously we didn't think it was going to make it when we planted it. But it is going strong and is that a fabulous Granny Smith apple or what? I see some homemade apple pies... well years down the road, but it is living and doing well now and I can bake the two apples when they are ready!
Hope you enjoyed all the photos today - No Libbie photo this week - sorry, she just wasn't in the posing mood last night - more in the attack her sister the cat, tear up the newspaper and pull all the rugs upside down moods. LOL
NOW... I know I told you last week, that I would post my blog candy this past week. But something I had wanted for it was back ordered - but I think it will be here today and I should be posting the goodies tomorrow!!!
Have a wonderful Saturday - what are you doing this weekend for fun?
