Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!!
The donkeys celebrated the holiday by checking out the pumpkins I took into their corral and dressing up as "vegan chefs"! (Well, as predicted only Paco wanted to dress up this year...Luigi didn't want anything to do with it!). Paco is a great sport and let me put on a chef hat and apron with no problems. However, once dressed as a chef, he displayed no interest at all in actually cooking!! This is one smart donkey...why cook when the hay can be delivered?!
Lots of interest in sniffing the pumpkins.

Paco poses!

This is as much as Weegie was willing to participate!

My little vegan donkey chef!!

He wasn't that enthused, but he willingly stood there while I dressed him.

Somebody dropped the spoon.

These photos are out of order...this was after spending several minutes parading around in costume...Paco suddenly headed for the corner of the corral and gave me his butt, which is clear donkey-speak for "I've had enough"!

"Luigi, you can stop staring at me!"

It was hard not to laugh- I thought he looked so cute!

Checking out the cookware.

After hanging out for a while, it was clear to me that Paco wasn't about to whip anything up!

I should have cut holes in the hat for those long ears!

Luigi was fascinated by the new items to look at, but when he saw me come out with the hats, he headed straight for the side of the barn!

Maybe next year we'll try a more traditional costume ...like a ghost!
My Halloween costume was easy this year- a bunny hat!
I guess I was a "Bunny Mama"!
The dogs and cat opted out this year...they decided to get their Halloween treats but to leave out any tricks!
