THIS was THAT day … the first real spring day. The robins are singing. The sun melted all the ice off both paddocks. I needed no hat, no coat, no gloves. And Bella spent part of the afternoon sleeping in the shade while her buddy soaked the heat out of the sand on the rolling knoll. Rosie kept yawning and Darby was hard pressed to work up the energy to care where the rest were standing or eating. I spent hours raking up the winter leftovers and loved the chance to give the paddocks a real clean up. I think for donkeys this is the perfect time of year. The sun is wonderful and there are no bugs yet. We’re lovin’ it!!
