Well, maybe rainy is a little much, it's mostly been dreary, windy with occasional 2 minute sprinkles. This morning when we got up it was 50 degrees, it is now time to do evening chores and it's 50 degrees.........!!!! This afternoon it was a little warmer, but not much. John said it wasn't going to rain, so I've been making fun of his weather reporting abilities.
Of course the donkeys are grumpy, I went out this afternoon to make sure the heater was on in the feed room, and about half of them were standing in the "rain", I yelled at Cisco and told him he had a perfectly good shelter in his pen. Unfortunately when I looked in his pen there were 4 mini donkeys already in his shelter. There are plenty of places to get in out of the wind and rain, but a lot of them just turn their butts to the weather and wait it out.
This is Rosie last January , with her pones and bubble butt
I took a picture of Rosie this morning to compare to what she looked like last January when she came here. She is still a "little too short for her weight", but we are headed in the right direction. She's lost the lumps and her tail is no longer embedded in her fat rump. YIPPEE..........!!!
