Awww, it makes me wanting to squeeze in with all the donkeys and get a 40 winks and at same time they can keep me warm! xoxoxoxo Love you all and don’t forget to give your mommy a big kiss for her special day!!!
I have a curiosity…
As I also visit daily The 7MSN Ranch, I saw on its current post and anothers posts that there are much snow on the ground.
As I know that you and Linda live in New Mexico, my asking is: why there are no snow in Morning Bray Farm? I see the herd naping together and there are no snow on the ground…
A very good question. The main difference is altitude. Morning Bray Farm is located in a river valley at just shy of 5,000 feet (1,501 m). Linda is about an hour and a half south of us at the end of a mountain range at almost 6,500 feet (1,980 m).
While Linda very frequently gets accumulations of snow during the winter, we very rarely do. If we do get snow, it’s generally very little and usually melts away the same day we get it.
If you click on the top photo of the herd napping, you’ll make the picture bigger. I personally think it’s easiest to distinguish Patrick from Bernard and Gracie. In this picture, Patrick is on the far right. You can tell it’s Patrick because his hair is longer and “fluffier.” His mane is definitely longer than Bernard’s and Gracie’s. Bernard is on the far left, and Gracie is in the middle. A few things that help… 99 times out of 100, Bernard is never far from Ellsworth. They’re inseparable. Gracie is bigger than Bernard, she still has some filling out to do (she was quite thin when she came to us), and she has a small sarcoid on her right shoulder (it is just barely visible in this photo). Does that help?
I just love this pictures of donkeys at rest and come back to look at it two or three times a day while I’m putzing around on the Internet. What a cozy looking group. I guess dirt is either softer or warmer than grass or maybe both. They are SO adorable!!!!
