REALLY it SNOWED!!! I live in SOUTH Central Texas and snow is a pretty rare thing around here. And yesterday afternoon it really did snow! HUGE BIG FLAKES! Once they hit the ground the melted... but it was sure pretty coming down!
I don't know if you can even see the snow here in this photo well.. but the donkeys are all under cover!
This photo sort of shows you how the Donkeys "puff" up when it is cold. This is Ellie Mae... All her fur is standing straight out and "puffed" up to help keep her warm. They are so pretty when all puffed up.
Sergio was pretty "puffed" up as well.... I took this one late in the day yesterday - you can also see here how red his fur has turned in the sun... and his face and legs are really BLACK... I wonder why that fur doesn't turn in the sun and the rest does.. hmmm - but he is gorgeous isn't he? MY BABY... we are only feeding twice a day now.. breakfast and dinner right before bed. They grow up so fast don't they?
I love this photo I took of Sergio and Daddy... they didn't know I was taking it....
We fed the Donkey really well yesterday afternoon... The more they eat the warmer they are... so everyone got the really "good stuff" yesterday!! They love the "Good Stuff" ... same hay just in smaller bales... LOL
Libbie was allowed time with her favorite "treat"... this is some sort of rubber ball thing, you pop in these hard "cookie" like treats and they chew and lick on them... suppose to last a couple of weeks... not with Libbie - more like a few hours - so we only let her have it about 45 minutes once or twice a week... SHE LOVES IT... and it isn't easy getting it away from her!
And the breeder sent me new photos of Autie yesterday!!!!! OH MY I think I am in love already! Is he adorable or what???? We get to pick him up between Christmas and New Years... I just can't wait!!!
Have a wonderful Saturday! HUGS and-
