Luigi dries off after the first rain in a long, long time!
On my morning walk today the air felt like rain...and sure enough, an hour or so after returning home the clouds gathered and spilled! It was kind of a shock to see after so many weeks of dry weather. The donkeys, I think, were a bit stunned, too. They stood around getting wet until they finally got enough sense to head to the barn. All the outdoor animal chores are much harder when it is wet - but we need the rain, so I'm not complaining! In other news, the rabbit finally got her Christmas gift - a Maze Haven - it has taken me this long to take it out of the packaging to assemble it (took me almost two hours, I confess...I'm not naturally good at following instructions and these were a tad complicated!). We'll see if she takes to it - so far she only ventured in once; beforehand was a lot of circling and "chinning" (when rabbits leave their scent on something to make it their own!)...see video at end of this post! OH, and big news: Luigi has finally agreed to pose for a weekly photo, on his terms...and that means he's allowing a picture of his butt! He is so reserved but won't hesitate to offer his butt for a good ole donkey scratch. If I'm out cleaning the barn he'll head over and very carefully get into a butt-scratching position...so funny!
