Donkeys for Danni

They're here!

Six beautiful donkeys (4 geldings, 2 females) now call Critter Farm their home.

There is so much going on around here today that I leave you with just one more picture for now. The picture below pretty clearly illustrates what yesterday was like. More on everything and everyone tomorrow, but after a rather stressful two-day journey from California, these donkeys...as Devin, the med tech who accompanied them, told me...were "wound tight".

My fuzzy friends were not at all certain that this new barn was a place they wanted to be. It took a lot of human "convincing". This convincing came in the form of pulling, pushing, clapping, coaxing, tempting, and, at times, carrying the hindquarters of cement-footed longears:

All six are now safely in the barn, loudly munching their hay.

  14. Congrats!! I know how busy I get caring for my goats, llamas, horse and chickens, but they arrived sporadically.
    I know you are one busy donkey foster mama with all of those long-ears arriving in one day.

    Post more pics when you can.
