Wrapped up like a...

Donkey in a rug?

It's going to be cold here tonite on the mountain and the boys were waiting for me when I got home for their rugs.

Does my bum look big in this?
Irwin has gone all camera shy (and his bum isn't looking too big - well, that's what I told him)
And just to promote the humiliation that some donkeys have to suffer, I thought I'd share a photo of Irwin (soaking wet) in his HOT PINK rug. He was dry on the inside...

And THAT is why donkey's love their rugs.

BTW - do you think they can see in the dark, given how much they love their carrots...

Life is tough

This is Moet. She was a rescued kitten from Her life here is tough... real tough. She has accommodated us for  year now but things are changing - she has a new profile.

She has become a very rare Clear Mountain White Lion. At sunset she stalks the humans and jumps out - scaring the shit out of us!

Big and tough - HA!

I'm sooo brave

Today I moved the electric fence for the donkeys so that they could have some more fresh grass. Tall grass... some as tall as me (I'm tall for a chick)... and all by myself. It was completely snake country and I was sooo brave. I know it's winter but I also know they are about. I saw one last weekend (a flat version) on the driveway. Even if I had seen one or - even worse - been attacked by one, the ground was so steep that I wouldn't have been able to have run anyway.

But I have a secret plan against Sid (and all of his legless mates)... chooker moles!

This is Lulubell and Black Chook (not to be confused with the other black chook called Louise Lambshanks). They are trained killers... never underestimate the pack hunting capabilities of a pack of chooker moles...
