Ok so to the donkeys - No new donkeys this week. And I am really ok and happy that they didn't. Since I was so sick the first of the week, and so behind the rest of the week, there was no way I could have spent anytime spoiling a new baby, and we all know when a new one comes I spend lots of time loving and holding the new little one. I mean I have to you know, so they will be friendly - not that I enjoy it or anything - :0) Actually I adore oohing and ahhhing over all of my babies!
So here are my three Mom's to be - they are all neck and neck in the race to who will be first. Jazz really was close this last week, but I think the 103 degree temps really did a number on her, his week we have a real cool front heading down - will only be 98 most days! Maybe with that and the slight chance of rain... PLEASE RAIN!!! they might decide it is time and go ahead and have a baby this week. And yes that was begging for rain - if we don't get some decent rain soon - things will get really bad around here. We are already nervous at what the price of hay is going to be this year - we are getting low as it is and with out some rain soon we will have to sell an arm or leg to get some!
Remember last week I showed you a photo of Jolene, my beautiful dark face little donkey. Well look how gorgeous her baby Josie has turned out. She doesn't have her Mom's dark nose, but she is still a pretty little thing. And Little is the word here... man she is tiny!
Here is Gloria and Lina... "Dad" had just put hay in their hay rack - and yes, they make a mess pulling it out... Lina is funny, she is eating what fell into the bowl - they sometimes get treats of grain in those bowls, so they hay must be better in the bowl. And Gloria... well she just decided to wear some of her dinner.
Hee - Haw .... Black Jack talks all day and night - he is my talker. Screams all hours... A wonderful Stud... and pretty funny, even if he is being serious.
This is the hanging plant on my back porch that I have told you about. Please don't judge that it has a few dead places... I haven't been watering it - as it has a family that has moved in. The sweet little wren started building a nest a couple of weeks ago... then there were the cutest little spotted eggs.. and now we have children. Oh and this planter hangs right next to my back door where we go in and out and is head high so we can watch these little ones each day.
Now mom doesn't stay around for photos... but the babies.. they have no choice but to smile. Hubby figures they will be gone in less than a week -
Hope you have a wonderful day - and weekend. I have some friends coming over - better get the house cleaned!
