A Glimpse of Paco, the Miniature Mule, & Other Critters

Yesterday, Mama and I were watching the sunset, and we were distracted by the grazing critters.
(Tootsie, I have all but killed the Big Ficus. I'm trying to nurse it back to health before cold weather hits).



On the far right, you can see Paco, the Miniature Mule. His former owners trained him to walk on his hind legs. Hopefully I'll get a picture of that one day.

Here's Paco on the move. He hangs out with the sheep.


Finally, here's a picture of the newest baby, a white donkey. We also have baby banty chickens, and one, Little Jimmy, is an attack banty. He's about 4 inches tall and furiously pecks Bandwith's shoes. If you pick him up, he's gentle, but put him back down, and he goes after the shoes.
I hope everyone is having a peaceful weekend.
Love,

Gollum & the gang

  4. Poor donkey would be to embarrassed in front of his new animal friends to walk upright.

  13. Morning Michael, What a wonderful view. There is nothing more peaceful than watching animals in the pasture, sometimes I just ride out there and watch the goats for a while. The problem now is that the three I raised come and what to nibble on me. I love them.

    Happy Labor Day to you and your family.

  16. Is the white donkey an albino or is the breed white? Inquiring minds need to know.

  17. Looks like a great spot to just sit and enjoy the view with your Mom -- and even better, being "entertained" by the critters!

  18. Mary, we don't think she's an albino (no blue eye) but a most unusual white donkey. Isn't she cute?!

  20. What fun to have all of those animals! I can't wait to see the mule walk on it's hind legs. I have always liked mules. And that's a hoot about the banty pecking shoes. LOL! Let's hope that trend stops when he gets to be a big!

    Glad your mother feels well enough to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather with you. Hope Mister is feeling better, too.

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  21. Love seeing the mini donkey, and sheep. Now I want to see that picture of him walking upright! I sure it is a site to behold. Don't just love to look out and see the animals. The new baby is so cute! I know about attack bantam now lol I have an Old English Bantam that tried to fly into me the other day, I was just going to feed him! lol First time since I was a child I got attacked. lol
