It sounds like the 3 trailers will be heading south from Colorado this week-end. A couple of the trucks needed some work before they hit the road and that's being done today and tomorrow. If everything goes smoothly, they will head out Saturday and should be here Sunday afternoon. They got 3 trailers filled with donkeys, I'm not sure what the count is.
Yesterday John and I spent the morning working in the dog pen to try to protect the remaining 2 trees from Casper's teeth.
|John is wrapping and stapling chicken wire around this tree. I had never looked close enough to realize it is a cat claw, which the donkeys don't eat. Hmm, probably why Casper didn't chew on it. But it got wrapped anyway.|
|By the time we got the little tree wrapped, we decided that corral panels would protect the big mesquite tree probably better than chicken wire. Mesquite trees do not grow straight, so it's not just wrap the wire around and staple. It was over 100* degrees, and time to move 1/2 the donkeys over to the Burro Barracks. At least that was our excuse for hurrying up the job.........|
