Memories.....

The storm is over, but we continue to be in the midst of grey, cloudy, drizzly days.
The animals are all "hibernating" and staying in where it is warm and dry.
And so, I have no new pictures to share with you from this week.

Except, perhaps, for a leaping (the leap was followed by a kick) donkey
who happens to be in a less than jovial mood...
thanks to days and days of dark, wet, muddy conditions.


So instead of news....of which there is none....
I thought it might be fun to resurrect some noteworthy pictures from years past...
an offering, or apology for my lack of content.

How about this picture of our barn....
before the arrival of horses...
back in the day when we only had one dog!
Imagine!

Donnie Brasco, when he was much younger and much thinner....
And to think in those days, we actually had grass where the dry lot is now!


Our very first batch of chicklets....
(we've raised many, many more since then!)


Our very first batch of ducklings....khaki Campbell ducks...
of which we have only one left.
Old Methuselah is about 6 years old, now.


O'Malley as a baby, before she made her long trip from Nevada to Pennsylvania....


Young Chip (now our oldest buck) faints for the camera....


Ollie's arrival....meeting Moonbeam and Dr. Becky's horses...



Oh, my, we've come so far and done so much these past 6 years.
The journey has been wonderful.
Each day unfolds with new adventures and countless sweet moments.

It's good sometimes to look back and remember...
and cherish these moments that pass by so quickly!
Thanks for joining us on the journey....

I'm kind of feeling like the little donkey by now myself! I'm so ready for some sunshine! :) I love seeing your animals, whether it's new pictures or old ones!
