Animal Crackers - Among the Flowers

Howdy -

Hope you have had a wonderful week. Things have been going normal around here - but Thursday I looked out the window and saw that all the "Girls" had made their way into a pen that they normally don't linger in ... such good grass in the other two they have access too - But they were all so pretty in this other pen that I grabbed my camera and ran out to snap a few shots...

They were all among the flowers... now I know these are in reality "weeds" but they do have flowers on them... I think they look beautiful!

One of my favorite photos...


Peeking over the "flowers"... Marissa and Caliente - These two are always together. Aren't they beautiful?

Then Irene decided to step in front of her 1/2 sisters photo - She wanted some time too  - just as pretty as her sisters.


Then I saw our old lady... She is our first donkey and one of the sweetest in the world. We were talking this week about her age. We were guessing 18-20 - you know how time flies.


So I pulled out the records and looked up her birth date... We will be celebrating her 22 year this Spring! She still gets around great and is in her prime though... In case you didn't know - donkeys can live to be 30-40... With proper health and care of course. So that is why we spoil our kids and make sure they are happy and healthy.

Gloria decided to take a break and rest for a bit.. then she rolled around in the dirt for a while to feel even better.


 Love this photo...

Ellie Mae couldn't see what I was doing when making her way up the trail. OH there... if you put your head up on Lydia's rear end you can see so much better.....

Patty was in end of the group...


She is getting so WIDE! Can't wait for the baby.... :0)


Then I saw a head pop up ...


 Ha! Sonia is so small I totally missed seeing her - Too adorable.

The wind was really blowing  - a cold front was coming in... Chica wasn't too sure about it -


She is such a pretty girl...

Autie is pretty darn handsome too -


My boy - Can you believe it has only been a few weeks since I shaved him totally. Told you it would grow back fast. And he get more gorgeous - - -

Hope you have a wonderful weakend -
HUGS and

What beautiful photos this week among the 'weedy' flowers! All the donkeys are looking so gorgeous that I can't possibly pick a favourite, but I had to laugh at Irene not wanting to miss out on the attention! Can't wait to see what Patty's baby's colouring is, it'll be cute anyways. Autie and Chica look stunning every time! Off to see my parents this weekend x

So Irene is good at Photo Bombing! They all looks so pretty among the flowers. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Oh, and we are all looking forward to seeing Patty's baby, soon.
