Oh my the weather has been so nice here this week! Everyone has loved the cool mornings, and nice afternoons. So lots of laying around and enjoying the absolutely perfect weather.
Jill was chewing her cud and just chillin'. Such a sweet lady and so laid back - in relaxing and in her personality.
Her 1/2 sister Sandy - she was on top of one of the huts. Same condition. Eyes closed, chewing her cud. Beautiful coloring on her. And again sweet personality.
Crissy is Jill's baby.. all grown up now and she is SO much like her Momma. She came over for some head scratches. Sometimes Head scratches are better than afternoon naps. And you cannot say no to those big brown eyes!
Black Jack seemed to be snoozing as well.
As much as I have seen donkeys sleep standing up I still don't get it. Doesn't look easy to do - I would fall over for sure! But they seem to be pros at it. I called out to my old man, but he was in the zone and sleeping pretty good. Not interested.
I know this is probably the only way I show you photographs of Spartacus... but seriously he totally cracks me up. This was late yesterday afternoon.
He found a small pile of hay left over from breakfast and decided that wearing it was better than eating it. So fashionable isn't he. All he needs is a runway and some lights and it would become high fashion I am sure!
Some really sad news. All our wonderful Guineas... this is all that we have not. One Guinea.
One night last week something got to them. Including Old Lady Guinea. No tracks just piles of feathers. We have come to the conclusion that it was an owl. We have been so depressed. Hubby especially crushed as he is so attached to his birds. So after loosing so many the last Guinea is now living in the chicken hut. Not to happy about it, but safe. Odd thing is that we have had Guineas in with the goats for over 4 years and never had one issue. And now all at once - gone. So Lonesome Charlie as Hubby and named this little one is now in the chicken coop and has found that she or he can get up on the roof of the hut away from those silly chickens. We are looking for some new guinea keets to raise and he has plans of a larger hut that he will train them to go into at night so they can roam with the goats during the day. May have to wait until Spring as we aren't finding any available this time of year. So very sad.
I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed weekend, hug something furry or feathered and enjoy them!
