The day I got out of the car after being gone for the morning running errands and having Sugar Foot race the fence line braying at me to come visit drove my poorly planned decision home to me. We had to get another donkey. Even Gene came to that conclusion on his own. I can provide quality food, shelter, vet care and loving attention but it is still all of a human nature. I picked up the phone and within hours the last two donkeys of Sugar Foots harem where delivered. Had I waited they would have been sold elsewhere. As they were loading them into the trailer at the Box R someone was coming up the drive to take them. Sugar Foot is a lucky boy, plan B was a Boer Goat which neither of us would be terribly happy with.
So without further ado, please meet Lady Jane Grey
Head count 18. Happy herd of donkeys, priceless.
And no, I will not be posting pictures of the holes in my head....;>
In other news, the weaving has commenced. Mid winding the warp I changed my mind on the pattern and ended up doing the Celtic Knot pattern shown here.
I'm glad I did too. I am mid way through towel two and have only towel three to weave between today and tomorrow. It's a fast and fun weave. These pics are from towel one.
In other news I would be remiss not to mention that DH Gene is walking on air these days, almost literally. He finally got his paramotor. Since he started paragliding again 3-4 years ago I have heard about nothing but the joys and advantages of motored flight. Yeah..right! In any event the motor arrived in all it's crated glory before the donks did yesterday so we both got to delight in new arrivals!
