We've been getting lots of wonderful rain lately. In the desert when the flora and fauna get a little moisture they make the most of it and grow like crazy. Our areas look more like the midwest right now than the desert southewest.
The donkeys of course are really enjoying all the greenery, which is great..........except at feeding time when we really would like for them to come in like good boys and girls. Do you think they are interested in old dried out hay, when there is all this yummy fresh green stuff out there? LOL
After the last long round up, they are now confined to just the 10 acres until further notice. It won't take long for them to eat down what's available, not sure what will be plan B. One good thing about the desert, rain and plant growth. If it doesn't rain for a week or so, all that greenery will disappear quickly and they will have to rely on "equine jerky aka "hay".
John's doing good in rehab, of course he doesn't think so, his timeline doesn't seem to agree with reality. They told us the average stay in their facility is about 2 weeks. It's not a, lay there until you feel better type of place. They are required by Medicare to provide 15 hours of PT, and OT a week, so it's not exactly Club Med......!!! He's had a couple of easy days, I have a feeling the schedule is going to accelerate pretty quick.....!!! LOL I'm sure he will do all he can to help the process get him back home.
We will be taking some donkeys down to Hereford this Saturday, Aug 14th to Echoing Hope Ranch. They have an open house every month and have invited the donkeys to come this month. It should be a lot of fun, just have to figure out which donkeys to take.
