Animal Crackers - Donkeys in the Sun!

Hello - as promised I got LOTS of donkey photos for this week. In fact so many that I may have to use a few next week :0)

First up two of the "young" baby boys -
Pedro and Ramon, two sweet little men. I can't believe that Pedro is already taller than Ramon. Didn't realize  that until I saw them standing so close. These guys are usually playing so hard you don't notice how tall each of them are.

Speaking of boys... my very first boy - our first baby ever - Diego
He is a big lug nut... but a loving lug nut :0)  He is a sweetie, he just needs to realize that he is a BIG miniature donkey and that he weighs in over 300lbs. and not knock you over trying to rub against you. But it is ok, we love him -

And here is his brother Pavo -
Our Turkey day Donkey. (his name in spanish is Turkey Dinner - born on Thanksgiving a few years ago) He is on our for sale list, I don't know if he will ever go anywhere though. He has bonded really well with Sergio my orphan boy that will never be sold, and well.... Pavo doesn't make a great first impression for those looking for a donkey. He is a sweet love once he gets to know you. But if you are new... he ain't coming anywhere near you. Then the other boys get in there and then show off how friendly and cute they are and they get picked first..... oh well... Pavo is happy here with us.

Cali - was enjoying the afternoon sun -
She must have been really comfortable - couldn't even talk her into coming to the fence for a pet. Don't blame her.. it was a gorgeous afternoon.

Vicki and Ellie Mae - the bestest of friends

Pretty girls - and two of the most vocal girls on the property! 

And just about that time.....

She let out a big Hee Haw!! Love that gal! 

The Three Stoogies... 
Our standards -Spoiled rotten... they roam the entire farm, and still think they have to have hay and grain each time the miniatures do... yes, they get it too, Hubby can't even say no to these guys. Even if he should from time to time.

Sorry... had to put in at least one puppy photo... 
Wouldn't want to miss a week and then him totally change in that time now would I? LOL This guy is just totally melting our hearts. And he is so smart!! We have the idea of the outside potty training down, ok, so at 7 weeks old he has an accident now and then, but he knows that he should go outside, and he is getting along with the there "adult" dogs. Don't tell Hubby... but I am SO glad I caved and said we could keep him. Totally in love with this guy... and what is one more dog? 1-2-3-now 4 ... but no more ok? LOL 

Have a great Saturday... Chores for me today. YUCK... but so needed. What are you up to this weekend?

HUGS and-
