The heated Rubbermaid water tank is a big hit, when they come out of their pens after eating

This morning about 2:30 John said he was up & outside to see what the heck was going on.  I slept thru it, unless it comes thru the bedroom, I'm probably not going to care.  Good thing John hears all these things.  

He said he could hear Molly making the "alert" sound obviously mules make too.  Donkeys will make the hair stand up on the back of your head, when they "alert snort".  He could also hear the sound of thundering hooves.

When he got out there, he said Rusty, the 34 year old fool was running around, with the mini mules watching him & Molly alerting.  He said Rusty would stop & they'd all look to the south east for awhile.  All the other donkeys weren't in sight, probably over in Burroland.  The range cows roam around all the time, but they've all seen them many times, so who knows what was going on. 

Changed Mother's bandage for the first time this morning.  I know it had to hurt, but she was a good little trooper about it............this time.  I'm sure as time goes on her cooperation level might slip a little.  Of course the 1st time you have to figure out what you're doing & how to do it, so it takes more time & bumbling around.  Hopefully I'll get it down to a science after a few days.
