    Smoky, the Little Donkey…
    …is wanting attention. His pen is running alongside the bluebell patch, and when I went out to pick some Bluebells for our HCE Board meeting, he came running to the fence to be petted.
    After petting his ears for a few minutes, and continuing with my mission, I started back up the path and he ran along side me. Lady, the mini-mare, nickered at me, wanting a treat.

    Homestead Address Change…for  the Chicken Roost, That is
    The girls, Blackie and Rhonda (hens), moved over the weekend from the little pen to the big chicken pen with an adjoining suite, complete with two roosts of different altitudes, rain-proof roof  (and drop-side-walls when needed), elevated water pan (to keep dirt out of their water when scratching for bugs) and their favorite nest for laying eggs, which is an old foot tub/bucket.
    They both would rather use it than the nice plastic, pretty pink crate we had bought for them.
