Animal Crackers - This is a Guinea not a Turkey.. whew...

Howdy -

Well we had our quota of Turkey, Ham, Stuffing and all the extras.. then more than our quota of pumpkin pie, pecan pie, banana cream pie, and chocolate pecan pie... yea we had a lot of pies...

The guineas were thankful that they are not turkeys.. cuz nothing was safe from the big meal.


But now we are going to go back to watching what we eat.. not just inhaling and watching everything in sight get eaten.  Well once the left overs are gone then we will get back to healthy... LOL

Came home from dinner one night earlier in the week to find a Alex standing out between all the pens crying and looking so lost. He must have been rubbing down the fence line and rolled out. We found just a small area stretched out.


Thank goodness the coyotes or dogs hadn't found him before we got home. After some bribing with some feed we got him back into his safe pen, then fixed the fence.

Love repairing fences in the dark when it is 35 degrees!

 Yesterday afternoon it was absolutely gorgeous outside here - the sun came out and it warmed up. Everyone was really enjoying the sun.... Ramon was rubbing his head on the fence and asking for some attention -


He is a sweetie and yes he got some personal attention and head scratches as soon as I snapped his photo...

Sam was watching everyone out in the sun - you can tell it has been a while since they have seen the sun as she was squinting.


Off in the distance our big guy was out enjoying grazing in the sun. The three big donkeys favorite place to graze in the afternoons... under their big oak tree.


It is so nice of them to let us live with them here isn't it? They do own the land and us you know? We are wrapped around their little... ok big hooves.

So now we are off to have breakfast with an old friend. Then later today I am going to help my High School BFF with her family photo for their Christmas cards. I need to get onto that myself as a matter of fact. hmmmmm

Have a great day -
HUGS and

Aaaahhh poor Alex! Glad he was soon back where he belonged, safe and sound. It's lovely that they're all enjoying the sunshine too. We have a gorgeous sunny morning here after a mild(ish) week - 9/10C! Have a good weekend x

Today is a lovely 44 degrees! It had been awfully cold, too early. Hope it holds for a while.
The guineas are cool. Love the polka dot feathers. hugs....
