Man I hate this Fall time change!!! We thought it would be fun when Hubby got home last night to take carrots out to the Donkeys for Donkey Day photos - he got home at 5:45... it was already getting dark! Not good for taking photos let me tell you! I was going to get up this morning and take better photos for today, got up at 6am and went and looked out the window.. yes sun is up, but I can't see any donkeys!!! The fog is so heavy I can't see 10 feet! Oh well - guess this week we are just going to have to do with Dark photos -
You can see here they love their carrots!!! This is even after they had calmed down. The three big donkeys are so funny, they move with us from pen to pen and get way more than their share of the carrots. You can tell of the mini's which ones really do LOVE the carrots - the farther their neck is out the more they love them. (Darlene has the longest neck in this pen!) Others just stand there and if they get one Woo Hoo! If not oh well they were in on the action. We try and be fair and hand out evenly, but sometimes they just aren't into carrots.. and the ones that are, very happy to take another ones share. The babies get right in there and fight for a place at the fence. They won't eat the carrots yet, we bite little pieces off for them even, nope they just don't have the taste for them yet. ( sorry about the flash in their eyes... I hate dark photos!)
Even Black Jack gets a few... now mind you he WILL NOT join in on the mass group feeding. Way beyond dignified, he is stud and is King of the pen. He just stands off to the side and we sneak a few over to him. I say sneak because if one of the "Ladies" see us taking a carrot to him, they run him off so they can get it... King... LOL We know who really runs the pens... the women!
Vickey loves carrots... Mirta is still not to sure about them... But her Mom will gladly take her share.
How about a Mom to be update? It has been awhile since we have been on baby watch. No not to close yet- at least another month or more... who is in line this Winter? Darlene (yes she ALWAYS has a very wide load... big boned girl anyway) Patti, Bella and Jolene are all due this winter! Yes 4 more babies coming this winter!!
Now this is a HORRIBLE photo... I know, I really didn't plan on showing it, really out of focus, and that dark night flash in Jazz's eyes... but then I saw it... she looks to be smiling - she loves carrots too! :0)
Well here is Libbie this morning - SHE LOVES my new craft room, her and Gato, the cat, both do. I think it is the "new" and the well big room not much in it and it echo's really loud! That little dog had one very loud high pitch bark... kind of like an ice pick in your ear! She loves to hear that in here!! Sorry the floor is so dirty - still a construction area... but 1/2 the room is painted! Oops you are getting a sneak peek of the color I picked :0)
Sorry the photos weren't so great this week... dark, blurry and all. But some weeks it is the best there is, LOL ! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
