|"MOMMIE SAVE ME.....!!"|
I guess that's what they are doing. They stayed up in Gilbert for a couple of days. Dr. Voss scoped the little guy & didn't see anything unusual. So I flew my idea of leaving them there & letting the experts feed him hay & see what happens.
MAYBE IF I YELL LOUD ENOUGH SHE'LL COME & GET ME........!!!
Everyone at the clinic thought he was just the cutest little thing. Of course they are use to horses, so donkeys especially a cute little fuzzy baby is a rarity. He was a good little boy, well except for that planting all 4 feet & having to be dragged into the clinic by the above butt strap.
If he eats hay without choking we'll go back up & get them later this week. If that happens, then we'll start introducing him to the outside world a little bit at a time.
I think I've figured out why Rusty was chasing Bijou a few days ago. Our neighbor that helps with chores a couple of mornings a week, was here this morning. He said Rusty spends hours & hours standing by our shared fence, visiting with Twiggy, a mare he is boarding at his place. I bet Rusty thinks Bijou might be another suitor for her attention. Poor little guy can just barely walk, & he's certainly not going 20 acres away to visit with her.
"WELL AT LEAST I GOT MOMMIE BACK"
This is what we saw when we left. Dr. Voss did say Tucker is very sturdy, which I think means he might be a little chunky for his age. One of the vets commented on how nice & healthy Mocha looks. Not sure, but that might mean she's chunky too.....!!! (G) Actually she is just about right, but I have been thinking about cutting down on their mush, I don't think Tucker has any bones that you can poke. Maybe if he gets out to run & play he'll get more exercise & won't be so "sturdy".
