So now we move to the events of Sunday. Shel, GK, Ry and I went on our favorite kind of adventure.
|L to R Ellsworth, Nigel, Buck, Patrick, Bernard, Gracie Belle|
|I never would have thought that a tumbleweed would be such a yumy treat. The donkeys had a great time with it|
|Donkeys greet each other by breathing into each others nostrils....so of course GK tried|
|When you stop scratching and ask Ellsworth "where?", he'll show you...|
Then comes "Fuzzy Feet" the adorable and very precocious Patrick who was rescued from torture at the hands of wanna be cowboys who used him as a roping donkey. He absolutely shocked me this time by coming up to us and letting us love on him. Gosh what 7 months has done for this sweetheart. He has the softest, fluffy topknot and face fur and is such an affectionate donk.
Ms. Gracie Belle has been at MBF only a short time and was such a thin girl when she came. Now she is sleek, filled in, commanding respect from the herd and in her own way also shows that while we are strangers, she knows a good scratch squad when she sees one.....won't be long.
And the latest edition to the herd is Buck, so named because he is a very deer color. Red, gorgeous and young enough to enjoy the romps, runs and antics of Bernard and Patrick. Funny thing is as you can see in the photo.....gave himself over to the love and curiosity of the kids. It was a thrill to see him go for it.
