Then they drove up - we already had Freddie haltered so we lead him out of the pen. The gentleman and his two children got out. Freddie is a birthday gift for his 6 year old son. But you could see the 11 old girl was just as excited. Fred walked right up to the three of them, and let them love all over him. Even the Man was very excited about getting him, and rubbed and loved all over him. My knot in my stomach went away... this is one of those times were it was right and felt good to sell one of my babies. This family is going to love Freddie and these kids are going to spoil him rotten. So it was a good thing and we were happy that Freddie was going to a family that already loves him.
Anyway - I thought that I would show you a few photos of Freddie over the past year...
He is such a cutie.. my little funny man....
I am gonna miss him, but I know this funny man is going to bring years of joy to those two kids! So I am ok... didn't even have any tears when they pulled away. We are taking bets between us to see how long it is before this family wants a second donkey.... I think that little girl is going to want a mini for her very own instead of "sharing" Freddie with her brother. :0)
No Libbie photo today... sorry - I'll try and get something for next week... oh and next week I just may have something new and fun to show you on "Donkey Day" ... no babies yet LOL... No Hubby and I did something nuts last night - I called on a "boyfriend" for Libbie, we think we are ready to purchase a little guy now. Well this breeder has one week old puppies, so we are on the list to possibly get one of them. But while talking to her she mentioned that she also had Dwarf Nigerian Goats she needed to sell. I mentioned it to Hubby... and somewhere from there to now... we purchased them over the phone!!! We really need our heads examined! We don't need these goats! But have you seen them? Oh my they are really adorable, especially the babies. I have always wanted some of these, Hubby has just recently been talking about getting some, a lady in the area has some mini goats and he has really enjoyed watching the babies recently. And I won't even go into how much his Mother has been wanting goats. So we now have to make the 4 hour one way trip to pick them up - there are 4 of them, a Buck and 3 does... who are all pregnant and so I guess we will have those babies soon too! AAAHHH!!! It will be fun and exciting, but just what we needed more mouths to feed! LOL!! Next week I should have lots to show off!
Speaking of showing off... pop back tomorrow I am going to show off a little bit of my new craft room. 1/2 of the room is ready to show, and I thought over the next few Sunday's I would show off what we have gotten done... I am so excited!! It really has turned out pretty, so pretty in fact... that now Hubby is working on our bedroom! LOL the craft room opens off our bedroom, and it really made our bedroom look drab and ugly, so he just had to re-do it too so it would all go better together! BONUS!
