Alarm went of this morning at 6:25 am, took a quick bath, and put layers upon layer of clothing on as I could hear the wind howling even inside the house, so I knew it was going to be a chilly day. I made a quick stop at work to drop of a birthday present for my P.I.C. and then set out towards Guelph. I got to the farm at 8:30 and went straight to work on cleaning the special needs side, slowly but surely some of the new volunteers started to arrive, one was someone knew to me, but she pretty much looked like she knew what she was doing. I haven't really been down in the barn to work now for good three weeks and it was nice to have the fuzzy faces nudging you in the back for attention, or pulling on your sleeve to take you away from your chore and give a belly scratch or an ear rub instead. I took Tibet for a little walk around the barn, we made eight rounds around the feeder to get her moving and to change up her routine a little, she is finally good enough to go on little walks and doesn't have to wear her wraps all day long anymore, so hopefully that is a good sign, I know she still has a long road ahead of her, but every day is a little better, having a poor conformation in her bone and leg structure sure doesn't help this little donkey, but she seems quite content and doesn't complain much. Gordon was so cute and funny this morning. He usually spends a good time every morning in one of the stalls, no other reason than it is where he likes to stand, this morning Summer was however occupying this stall for her breakfast and he was not happy about that, so he kept opening the latch to make sure she can get out and he can come in. After re-locking the stall a few times, Summer was finally done with her food and the stall was empty, sure enough Gordon walked in and stood there, looking very pitiful and making these little grunting noises, sounded really pitiful, what he was actually hoping for was that we would give in, like Helia always does, and bring him a bowl of treats, Helia loves Gordon and he loves her and every time she is there he gets a little extra food and treats from her inside that stall, only one problem today, Helia wasn't there. lol. And after grunting for twenty minutes he gave up and came back out, because none of us gave in to him. He is such a silly ole boy.
