Day to day goings on here at the farm. Everything from weather to horses and donkeys to chickens to cats and dogs and everything in between. Some blogs will be informative. While others will be I hope, just entertaining and keep you coming back. And of course there will be pictures.

Walking across the desert
As I was outside taking care of the chickens, as usual I stopped what I was doing and started watching the donkeys. Can't help myself.
Now that the pastures are brown, it looks like a desert. As I stood there the donkeys started 'migrating'. Pearl was in the lead crossing the desert.

Hoody Dude bringing up the rear.
Whew! Finally reached the destination. The shade of an old oak tree.
Don't let the pics fool you! Today's temps are very nice. As you can see there is still hay left over from this morning's breakfast. Lots of oak trees for shade. Water troughs scrubbed and filled daily. Yeah, they live a terrible life! :)
