This morning it seems the corner is turned with Jasper. He is up, bright eyed and "interested" in eating pellets and hay. I think his feet are also a problem, he seems very ouchy on them, which with all the extra weight he is carrying would be very uncomfortable.
Last night we got the brilliant idea that he might be more comfortable eating from a hanging bunk, rather than at ground level, so John scavenged a hanging hay bunk and also a feed bucket. They both seem to be a hit, but the hay bunk has seen better days, so we'll have to get another one, when we get a chance, not today unfortunately.....!!!
This morning I thought since he was doing better, I might as well start introducing some Bermuda hay to see if he would be the slightest interested in it. Imagine my surprise when I brought it and an alfalfa flake in and he chose the grass hay by grabbing a big mouthful. Since then I've added some more and he's still up and eating it.
We are getting ready to load up 7 donkeys and head for the Tombstone St. Patrick Day Salute to the Troops parade later this morning. Don't know if the officials will allow it, but Lynn and Linda are going to try to have Leo in the parade at liberty. He will usually follow Turbo wherever he goes, and it shouldn't be a problem, IF, the officials have a adventurous spirit...........LOL
The parade is at 11am, and John and I have to leave with 4 of the donkeys immediately afterwards to bring the donkeys home, and pick up the race car to get to the race track in Tucson before 3pm.......!!! We need to have a talk with our "event planners"........ this is crunching too much fun into too little time, I think.........LOL Probably won't get home from the races until 1am or so, so tomorrow should be pretty much of a loss, at least I hope so........!!
YEA..........GO JASPER GO....!!!
