I've been pretty quiet lately, my computer had to go for a visit with the computer doctor, I got it back about 3 days ago and have been trying to catch up ever since. It's amazing how much the computer has become ingrained in my daily life. I'm still not caught up......!!!! LOL
Even though it's been so hot, we've actually had people coming out to see the donkeys. Jasper has become a "front and center" type of guy. He's figured out this tour business and seems to think the people have come just to see him. So he presents himself pretty much in their face, which of course is quite thrilling, since a lot of the people have never been that close to a donkey before. So far no one has ran for their car.........LOL
It's cooled off to the high 90's which is good. Unfortunately we have pretty high humidity right now and lots of flies even though we use fly predators and fly traps. Still doctoring Boaz, he has 5 places on him that need twice a day treatment and even then, I'll think he's healing up, go out like I did this afternoon and find one of them dripping blood, probably because it bothered him and he bit it. That one is on his chest over an old scar from his former life. This is the 1st year it's been a problem and it's really been a challenge. Chests are not an easy place to bandage, so I try to keep it covered with medication that the flies don't like. I think they just wait until the heat makes the paste or gel melt, so they can do their dirty work.
Tyler is coming out Sunday to reset shoes on Gus, and Gigi and possibly Rosie. Rosie started limping pretty bad a few months ago and has done real good in shoes on her front feet. He's talked about leaving the shoes off and might do that this time to see how she does.
Lynn and Linda will be burro pack racing this Sunday at Buena Vista, a 13 mile race. This is the 3rd race in the Triple Crown, and this year they could have a Triple Crown Winner. Mary Margaret and her running buddy
