The Donkeys Are Here!!!

We adopted Jubilee (more spotted) and Trinket (mostly white) this week!  They came from Longhopes Donkey Rescue which is about 45 minutes from our house.  They are mini spotted donkeys.  We plan to use them for fun mostly, we will be working with them so the kids can ride them and we'd like to see if we can train them to pull a cart too.  I'm so excited!!  Here's some pictures of them adjusting to their new home and some of our other barnyard creatures as well!

Ian was inside reading his Lego Star Wars book. He's not as keen on the donkeys as Gracie. We'll be working on that too!

Gracie looks so excited! What a fun project and "tool" for you guys to use. Can't wait to meet them in person. What do the cats think about them?

The cats and the dogs are very curious. The donkeys want nothing to do with them though, Trinket is actually really defensive and she chases them. It's really funny.

It is so lovely to see you still blogging Alice! Wonderful pics of the kids with all of the animals- how they've grown. Hope you're all keeping well. I've finally come out of hibernation and have so much to catch up with. bests
