This week I thought I might snap a few photos of the three stooges (the standard donkeys) that have started begging for peppermints lately. Last week I showed you how Ted will stand where we park the truck and won't move until he is bribed to do so. Well one evening this week they were all three "grazing" right out by the front gate. I think they were guarding to make sure they didn't miss us coming in and not get any treats. They don't get treats every night but once in a while they need spoiling right?
Ted is ALWAYS first... and then tries for second and third as well.
Love how Ted always keeps his eye on the camera, he is such a ham!
Then Valentine... he is a little slower and cautious like his Mom Cocoa, but speeds up when he sees that Ted is approaching to steal it away. And look close here comes Ted's big head!!
Her photo came out a little grainy sorry about that. Sun was going down. You have to approach slowly and make sure she feels good about it... then very slowly she will reach out for the peppermint. Cocoa is a rescue donkey and we think she was not treated very nice in her early years as she is very very very cautious. And Spooks easily and will run off if she doesn't feel all is safe.
Then once parked and ready to head in Hubby decided that it was a good night to feed the goats some feed. They only get fed pellets once or twice a week to make sure they don't get too big to fit in their huts... LOL
Since I had my iPhone out I thought I might get a video of dinner time in the goat pen for you. They are all so calm and wait in lines for their dinner . No pushing or shoving or loud talking here... nope we wait so nicely..... NOT
Hope this works for you...
Hope this week gave you some smiles. We are really praying for some rain around here as things are drying up and we really could use some winter grass here for everyone. Speaking of praying... say a little prayer for Miss Libbie will you? Libbie has had a really rough week. She has been having eye sight issues for a few weeks now. Just in one eye... this week the other eye has starting clouding over as well and now she is not seeing well at all in dark areas and her depth perception is going. I just pray that it slows down and she can still have some vision for a while longer. Hasn't slowed her down too much so far, other than when she missed a back step and sprained her back leg. But after a few days that was much better and she was running to bark at everything outside again. I can handle her having some sight issues and like I keep telling her she can live perfectly fine with the no depth perception I do right? But I just want her to be able to get around like she is use to for as long as she can. We will do all that we can to help her and work with her for sure. She is our baby so no questions about making sure she is all that she can be.
Have a blessed weekend -
