I would like to introduce you to the cast of characters here at our ranch.   This way, when I refer to them by name in the future, you will OF COURSE remember each and every one of them.    

Two and a half years ago, we decided to add some grazing animals to our property.   The choices were cattle (NO!), sheep (NO!), goats or equines.   I have had a little experience with goats on the property.   No offense to you goat lovers, but they were a pain in my backside.   I realized I like to look at other people's goats, but keep a goat-free ranch myself.   I had seen some miniature donkeys as I was driving around this area and knew I would love to see some on my property every day.   So we drove to Los Olivos and visited Linda Marchi at her Seein' Spots Farm.   She had/has about 20 to 25 donkeys which made it difficult to choose only two.    We did choose two, brought them home, and immediately fell in love with the cute little stinkers.    So I introduce Harry and Gunny.   I will share more photos of them in future posts.

And I also want to thank all of you for visiting my new little blog, and for your welcoming comments.   I definitely have a lot to learn as I share my photos and stories about our critters.    Have a great Sunday and Happy October!!

What Have They Done?

Blogger made some changes this week.   I didn't dig in enough to understand them because most, I'm sure, don't apply to my needs...
