Okay... Lots of
updates... we have been VERY busy! First, we adopted
out the 4 Piddies (boo hoo...) and the same day two
newcomers joined us. I think we're going to name
them Cleopatra and Pharoah (Cleo and Ro).
And that same day
newcomer Weebit arrived! She will be Laddy's new
girl, so we went with an Irish name for her!
WeeBit is so
funny! As soon as she sees me coming, she runs and
hides in her little house. She feels very safe
Look at pretty
Bonnie Bonster! She's so pretty!
Dilly... He is just the sweetest little boy ever!
Bella is broody
and wants to have a baby, but I keep telling her,
"You can't have a baby, you ARE the baby!"
Tricia is also
wanting to hatch out ducklings. She trills and
squeaks as I carry her out of the barn every day.
Rilo and Ranger
are like mirror images. At night Rilo goes into the
barn with Billy-cha and Ranger moves over to Rilo's
day pen. That way they can talk all night through
the barn window. But before I close the barn door, I
always let Ranger in to say goodnight to his
brother. He runs into the barn and races over to
Rilo's kennel door and they both start QUACKING! And
then I say, "Done saying goodnight? Time to go
then!" And Ranger runs out the barn door. It's the
cutest thing ever. Isabel LOVES it!
And in other news,
we finally were able to put Demi and Shorty together
in their own pen. They fell in love through a shared
fence, but we had to wait for an empty pen to move
we're building a new duck pen. It's small... about
8' x 10' I think. Someone donated their pen and
we're working on the foundation now and then we'll
mount the walls and put up the roof and put a pond
and duck house in. It will probably be a couple
months yet, but it's coming along very nicely. It
sits downstream from Louisville.
