But no one was very interested in him today, they were more interested in preparing for winter...

Time to really focus on bulking up! Any excuse we can use!

Puffin is the leader of the smalls- even though she is the smallest of them all...

Here she chews her cud while Max gets a belly rub...

Puffin and Firefly came over to see if I had any treats...

No treats but Max's ball was there...

Aurora was sleeping in the sun but decided to come over for a quick snuggle before returning to her sunbeam.

Ellie's bum is 100% healed and so is her tail and feet. She must feel so much better.

She had a nice walk in the sunshine and much to my surprise does great on a lead.

She quite enjoyed herself.

All the boys were strutting around today actually... must be the weather. Or they were all just showing off for me.

Horace and his little pal, Ruby. Since their mama passed away this spring they have grown closer.

Little Ruby has such a sweet face.

Oh yes, you are the most handsome turkey of them all...

Sammy: Hey! Stop looking at the turkeys and give me a back rub!

And just so you know, working on the blog here is a group effort... always. 


Awww, love all these photos! Everyone looks healthy and happy. They are all adorable, but I must say I'm totally smitten with Jackson. He is just the cutest thing ever!
oh my, what a cute picture of you and the boys!

I really love all the pictures.

I'm glad Ellie is in a loving home.

Oh, I love seeing the video of Ellie! She must feel so good now that her sore spots are healed. I think you come up with the perfect names for all your babies. It's like you knew what would fit them.

Your blog writers are a sharp crew too!
Hi Donna! I finally introduced you to hubby. He can't get over all of your critters!! Glad to see you out and about!!

I don't ever comment, but just wanted to say I like your posts and the pics of all the animals
That last photo is a riot!! It's a wonder you get anything done. I know how hard it is with just a couple of supervisors. :) Love the photos as always - your whole gang is just beautiful.

Couldn't stop laughing at Rolly sitting on your shoulder like that with the rest of him in the sun! What a riot!
Always good to see all your critters!! I can't even imagine your food bill in the winter. You're looking great!! Hoping that you continue to feel as great as you look!!
So Donna, it's dark night after a dreary, grey and snowy day here on the 9th...and your post from a few days ago shows blue sky and happy critters. Just what I needed to cheer me up! Goat love and sunshine and soft bunny butts. Ellie is adorable. I've only popped in a few times over the past many months, I need to catch up...I am glad you are looking well! Cheers!
