Red Head

Red was checking out the Garden Head earlier this Spring, Red seemed puzzled  by him. I thought it looked like two old souls checking in with one another.

Bread For Lulu And Fanny

This morning, Maria brought a piece of bread out for Lulu and Fanny, good stuff from the Round House Bakery. The donkeys are sweet and gentle about taking food, it is a way of talking to them sometimes, and they love pieces of bread, an occasional treat for them. Fanny is at the bottom of the photo, Lulu at the top.

Flies, Flies

Flies, Flies

I used the IR camera to try and pick up the flies swarming all over Chloe this afternoon in the pasture, I thought (correctly) they would show up against the lighter background. Flies are part of a horses existence, we put a mask on Chloe and also are giving her a natural hormone that passes through her body and into the manure and kills the fly larvae. The number of flies is already down a bit. It think it's harder for me to to watch than for her to deal with, she keeps right on grazing.

Next year, we will begin the hormones earlier, around May and that should help.

The Daily Kiss: Photo By Maria Wulf

I came to give Chloe her daily bath, but now she insists on a kiss before I come in. Maria says she has my number. That could be so.
