Then I worked for the rest of the time in the Girl's paddock, also dubbed Gordon's paddock by us volunteers, and broke up ice over rain puddles that had form, that's all I need somebody breaking a leg or so. Boy, it sure was a good frustration buster, so I worked out some anger in a physical way and I have the blisters to proof it. All along while I busted sheets of ice, the girls were soaking up the sun. (Juno, Roberta and Tibet, l2r)
Before we left we spent some time in the main herd, it was so cute, there were donkey boys laying down all over the field, but not together, one here, another over there, another way over there, one by the feeder..etc, they were totally relaxed and enjoying the warm winter sun, and it was so nice to be out there. The girls on the other hand hung out with us and were looking for attention and ear scratches and just some one on one time. We have about four well mannered boys in the girls group and they were keeping us just as much company as the girls did. I took a few pictures to share with some friends that can't visit during the winter months and it made me happy to do so. Here is Donkeschoen checking out the new gate to the lane way that leads up to the Donkey House.
Of course I didn't leave without checking on my sweet Orly one more time and she was enjoying the sun with Callie the goat, I gave her a big hug good-bye, because you just never know, and petted her for a while and then left.
Other donkeys enjoying the sunshine
Evil eyed Peter...he is always on the lookout for reasons to protect his little donkey wife Katy.
Totally zonked out Callie
Obewan with his horrible dirty coat, but I know why it is so dirty too, because Mr. Whitey here loves to roll in the dirt.
And some of the gang.
After we said good-bye we met with two other friends for coffee and because we sat at the coffee place for so long, it turned out to be time for dinner and we headed across the parking lot to a Greek restaurant and continued our stories there. I don't think we ever laughed so much, and we developed a few plans for the next little while and I can't wait for our next get togethers. It is always so much fun to get together with my donkey loving friends....we are sure some special nuts.
