Go out and run donkeys to get them ready for racing this spring. So that's what Lynn and Linda did a few days ago with friends, in the Patagonia area. I think they got more snow than we did. They said it was a beautiful area to run donkeys with lots of trails. I would imagine they will go back.
Really a nice looking area, John use to do jeep tours in that area and thought it might be a good burro running area.
This morning we had a young lady come out to do research for a science project on who brays more the girls or the boys. We could have given her the answer to that...!!! LOL The boys are very noisy especially at feeding time. She said it was hard to keep track of them, but she had her sister helping her. It's for school, so I hope she wins first place.
This morning Cochise was warming up in the bright sunshine. When he came here a couple of years ago, his left ear was hanging probably from the cartilage being broken down from being roped. He was used as a roping donkey and a neighbor got him away from the cowboys and asked us to take him. It's taken awhile, but it almost matches his right ear now. He has a really nice disposition and loves to run, so I would imagine he will be going back to Colorado this summer.
This morning Lynn was messing with one of the golf carts and had all sorts of help.I think it is Muzzy, Paco and Jackson, but it's hard to tell. This afternoon Suzanne was trying to load some containers into one of the stock trailers and Big Gus was helping. I didn't have the camera but trust me his help isn't really much help, although it does keep you busy trying to get what you're doing done. He was turning the containers over, I'm sure he thought there was something to eat in them. We finally put some hay out to entertain him so Suzanne could get loaded.
