First big bit of news since we last blogged is that (amazingly) I found Jeff's owner and they were happily reunited.
|Jeff (aka Rocky) heading home with Sam, his dad. Is it just me or did he look really sad to be leaving?|
Roman (God bless his simple headed soul) continues to "help" me around the place.
|Roman helping me bag dog bones from a friends cattle kill (he's guarding them - growling included)|
|Roman helping me with a pile of excess donkey straw, which is full of donkey poo and probably the odd snake. It must have been warm.|
|Roman visiting his special place while having a hydrobath|
|Obviously trying to find out which came first - the chicken or the egg!|
Next one will be called Westinghouse and there will be no photos on social media!
Donkeys are fine, happy and healthy. They spend a lot of time around the house paddock due to grass being in lack of supply (sans SirLoin). So, I'm in the process of opening up another 10 acres of mountain for them to graze and hopefully exercise on. It's soooo steep in areas that I have never seen the bottom of some ravines. In the interim they are being very well hand fed (not without the constant requests for more).

|Red Rooster is such a friendly and lovely boy|

There has also been many jars of various chutneys (mainly by MOTH - I grow and harvest, he cooks) produced over the past weeks and this weekend it will be lime time.
|So, if I make lime marmalade and add a splash of vodka, will it taste like a vodka lime and soda?|
Hopefully I'll be good to go in a few weeks when MOTH and I head off for a bit of a holiday. We have a zookeeper coming in to manage the animals.
Then it will be bushfire season and then summer. Gosh, 2014 - what happened to you?
