I spent yesterday afternoon, sewing up some new leggings for Jenny & Quilla. They aren't very durable & if they fall off out in the brush, are almost impossible to find.
This morning I replaced some of the worst ones they were wearing with new ones. Put new ones on Quilla & about 5 minutes later noticed one of them was wadded up in a ball in Chico's pen. Quilla will stand beside Chico's pen, Chico reaches thru, grabs a legging & they usually look like he tries to eat them. This one was very wet, & covered with green slobber. YUCK!
Chico's Mom called this morning to see how he's doing. Dr. Weaver will geld him in August if it cools off, & then he can go home. In the meantime we are having fun with him. He is a very nice little boy, & loves attention. He doesn't understand why everyone else gets to go out & he doesn't though.
Lucy's foot looks terrible. Dr. Taylor said local vets could cut it off, but I couldn't get an appointment until next week. I hope she doesn't get that piece caught on anything in the meantime. She's walks rather gingerly on that foot, so I assume it is sore.
It's getting harder & harder to round them up. The problem is we are getting enough rain to really make all green things grow, & they are scarfing up everything they can find. John even cutting down on their hay, they aren't eating all of it anyway. There are a few mesquite beans in their poo, but not many yet. There actually isn't a lot of beans this year on our trees, so hopefully we won't have to close burroland to the donkeys & open it up to the range cattle to eat the beans.
