If at first you don't succeed.... try, try, again! You might remember the photo that I posted a few weeks ago of Forrest trying to mount one of the donkey girls. If you didn't see that post, I will tell you... the donkey was tolerant as long as I was close by, but then after having enough, chased Forrest out of the dry lot.
As I was cleaning up manure this past weekend, he decided to give it another go.
His advance was quickly rebuffed.
"Out of here you filthy mongrel!" Daphne brayed as she chased him under the fence.
Yes, the world is a play toy for this youngster.
Everything and everyone...
Mud, and puddles, and anything that can be dug into is fair game. It's almost a blessing that he still likes to swim in this cold weather. At least the pond gives him a much needed bath!
We had a very fun and a very busy few days entertaining this little one.
Easton came to stay for a few days of "special" time by himself. He and "Muppy" (Hubbs' grandfather name) did some work in the wood shop - lots of opportunity for learning.
Finally, Hubbs has someone with whom he can play all of his favorite games!
We did nighttime safaris and rode through our woods in search of deer - we saw several. This is always a highlight for the kids at this time of year when it's so easy to see through the trees without summer's underbrush.
On Sunday, his brother and sister joined us.
Sadly, we couldn't go out into the woods during the daytime because it is hunting season. I would have loved to share this fairy house with them!
We are in a stretch of very cold, clear weather. It seems that winter may have arrived.
