Animal Crackers - Spring, Shake and Roll

Howdy -

Well SPRING is officially here. And things are really growing! Our front pasture is finally showing the colors of spring with the first of the flowers. Indian Paintbrushes, and soon we should see a few more bluebonnets.

Hubby caught a great photograph of Cocoa and Valentine enjoying the afternoon in the sun surrounded by the flowers.

 They do look pretty standing in the flowers don't they?

Found Leon enjoying the spring weather as well... talking and showing off to the girls next door. He is a handsome young guy isn't he?

And then he decided to SHAKE off things and start strutting all over again. 

He is funny... but don't tell him, he thinks he is totally cool. 

And for a little ROLL, I found Miss Moxie enjoying a little back rub roll in one of the donkey pens. Oh my that girl is never clean for long, she loves rolling in the dirt.

 Love this shot of Darlene - My old lady...

We have put Bella into a smaller pen near the house to keep a close watch on her as she is really starting to show her signs of a baby coming. And since her BFF is Darlene we decided until it is time for the delivery we would have Darlene keep Bella company in the pen. Ok so neither of them are super happy being in a small pen away from all the girls. But as long as they are getting fresh hay they are dealing with it.

Libbie in her new bed... Yes. that is a hole with stuffing coming out. I asked what happened to her pretty bed and she put her head down and gave me this sad looking little face.

Now how in the world can you be upset with that face. We will just have to fix her bed and move on. Will get her a new one if we have too. A better sewn one next time I am thinking. You can see in the photo only one eye is flashing back, she is totally blind in that one eye and most of the time she copes just fine. She still bumps into a few things from time to time. But she has learned to not move full speed if she can't see well so bumping isn't to hard on her. Love this girl so much -

Hope you have a wonderfully blessed weekend - A very blessed Easter Sunday -
HUGS and

Oh, how lovely! Great pics! Spring is not here in Austria yet...well calenderwise it is, but it is still cold and rainy and the grass is not green yet :( But at least some narcisses are in blossom now - finally! Longing for spring to come!
Happy Easter to you!

Awesome post today. Love all the flowers and the beautiful weather we have been having. Told hubby the other day I don't remember winter this was so short. I am worried about summer this will be hot! Happy Easter. Vickie

Happy Easter to all. Love the wildflowers in bloom. We are seeing green but still weeks away from any blooms.
