"May I have your attention please?" says Rod Stewart, our wacky Polish crested Roo.
"I have an announcement."
"This Friday is Sissy and Sally's (our pregnant fainting goats) due date!"
These two best friends are both big as barns !
Becky has them monitored by video surveillance,
so we will know as soon as they begin labor.
Hopefully Monday's post will be filled with baby goat pictures...
as well as mini donkey pictures.
For those of you who missed the post about these gals...
this is Morning Glory...
And this is Daphne.
These two little girls are miniature Mediterranean donkeys,
also known as Sicilian donkeys.
No, they are not coming from Sicily....although all of their ancestors came from
Sicily or Sardinia.
These gals are coming from Shadow Cross Mini Ranch in northern PA.
They are the sweetest, friendliest little gals ever.
They are both just 9 months old.... born on the same day,
and are best friends.
Their size upon maturity will be 32 - 36 inches tall...
about the size of Ollie and Red.
(the smallest fellows in this picture)
I am told by those who have them (and I have read this, too)
that with lots of love and handling, these gals will be very sweet and loving
additions to our farm family.
You can bet that during the early weeks of their life here,
Sam will be wearing his shock collar 24/7.
There will be no donkey chasing!
You got that, Sam?
PS....Happy First of March!!
Spring is right around the corner.
And March is birthday month around the farm!
