Some people that had been out for the Open House in December, called & wanted to bring a few friends out this morning to meet the donkeys.
When they got here there were more than just a few......!!! The closest guess we came up with was 26. It was hard to keep track of them, they kept moving.....!!!
They are a group that gets together to play with their off road toys on week-ends. Today they were going about 15 miles north of us, up a riverbed to see some dinosaur tracks. Actually they are Woolly Rhinoceros tracks in rock but everyone calls them dinosaur tracks. The guy that put it together said they had about 6 people signed up until they said they were coming to the donkey rescue....!!! How neat is that? They brought apples & carrots, which of course was very much appreciated by the donkeys & mules.
This is BlackJack entertaining his adoring public. BlackJack looks so much different than the other donkeys & is such a ham, people always make a fuss over him. He has learned to work people & they love it.
He probably has some French Poitou blood in him. Don't know for sure, but this isn't your typical donkey face.
I had decided not to change Boaz's knee bandage until tomorrow. When he came in this morning it was all askew, I don't know how he can mangle a bandage like he does. I've gotten pretty good at bandaging, but knees seem to be tricky.
The dry scabby area is where he managed to get the diaper I use for bandaging pushed down. I've been putting Wonder Dust on it, which has worked well for keeping the area open, to hopefully start filling in with scar tissue.
Courtney didn't make it again today. I e-mailed her, the longer it takes her to get out here, the bigger & stronger Wister will be. We've worked on picking up feet, halter, touching all over, the basics & he does pretty good. But he is so independent, I have a feeling it's going to be a rodeo.....!!! Courtney said she'd eat her Wheaties before she comes.......!!! LOL
