Meet 6+ yr. old Jennifer (Jenny from the block). Jenny arrived in our front yard shortly after we moved in. She sang her sweetest love songs to Jack until he relented and escaped his pasture to persue her. A few hours later Jack & Jenny reappeared on our back porch with Jack looking thru the window and nosing the back door. It was quite obvious that Jenny had won his heart and he was demanding her acceptance into our family. Although Jenny was unapproachable and vary wary of humans she would follow Jacks lead until our trust was earned. Jenny and Jack have become inseparable and together they are a force to be reconed with as guardians of their empire. Several ferrier visits later their hooves are in much better shape and after immunizations and check ups from the vet they have been declared fit and sound. Although there is some speculation that Jenny's tryst with Jack may actually lead to a fuzz ball in the pumpkin patch. I've been told that gestation is 11 months and Jenny joined the family on Aug. 6, 2014. Will wonders of life abound?
This is our rescue donkey Jillian. She is approximately 5 years old.
Jillian has a very difficult life up to this point. She recently had a colt but
unfortunately the colt did not survive. I hope we will be able to give
Jillian the love and care she needs and deserves.
Sweet little Joleen. She is also a rescue donkey pulled from theslaughter truck.
Joleen is only about a year old. She was having issues when she arrived. Very
heavy breathing and seemed to not be feeling very well. She laid down and would
not get up. The person who delivered her to us even said that if she did not make it
she would get us another Jenny to replace her. :( Well----we got her up, walked
her for several hours, forced liquids, talked to her and calmed her down, About 12
hours later she seems to be doing much better. Unfortunately , we were
forced to put Jo down the following day due to a ruptured stomach. I'm so sorry Jo.
I really tried to save you. :(
Our first duck hatchings. What an awesome thing to watch. The marvels of new life emerging. Hard to believe this little wet unattractive blob will evolve into a beautiful duck.
So----our ugly duckling Quacker's has grown into a beautiful male. Lessons learned in the bathroom sink were well worth it. He takes a bath every morning at dawn when let out of his coop for the day. After his bath he normally retreats to his run for breakfast and then back up to his safe haven, warm and snuggly in his coop, but is able to roam the pond and pasture at will during the day.
On October 3, 2016 Sofie blessed us with 8 beautiful pups. 3 tri color girls, 3 tri color boys, and 1 Blenheim boy and one Blenheim girl. Beautiful litter! Such a good mom!
