THE MORNING PARADE..........!!

                                          I never get tired of watching them run and play 

Pepper seems to be holding his own.  He's not venturing out as far as he was last month, but he's going out eating prickly pear and doing his thing.  Hopefully the warming up will help his legs.  

Last night when I went out to help dispense hay, it smelled like a skunk had done the dirty deed right by the house, boy was it strong.  Got out to the pen area and it wasn't very noticeable.  I said something to John and he said he was responsible.  When he came around the corner of the car port with the golf cart, one of our resident skunks was eating Boofer's dog food in the car port and obviously didn't appreciate John's arrival.  He didn't spray John or the golf cart thank goodness.  It's about 300 feet to the garage from the house, but I guess the prevailing wind was lined up perfectly, so the house area was in the direct line

Goodness, I thought for sure the lack of posts meant sad news. So glad to learn that you all have been Blessed with extra time to spend with the amazing old Pepper! Guess he still has unfinished business left. We have had more skunk activity then usual this winter. Pee-eew! The donkeys chase everything else away I think the stinkers sneak around while they sleep.

I'm hoping with the warmer weather we've been "promised" he'll be more comfortable. It was 27 here this morning.....UGH!

Florida is cold and misting rain today. I like sun shine. We have had heat on almost all day. I think this weather is to hold for the next four or five days. Really glad Pepper is perking up a bit.

Haven't been out yet this morning, but it was 23, suppose to be in the 70's today and sunny.
