Happy Valentine's Day & Happy Birthday to Paco at the Lazy Vegan!

ANOTHER donkey birthday at the Lazy Vegan - Paco turned seven on Valentine's Day!  I met an elderly woman this week who had a donkey named Lucy who died last year at the age of forty-seven...so Paco and Luigi have many years ahead of them! I'll be shoveling manure well into my eighties!  And this is worth another exclamation point or two!! Or three!!! I adore the boys and don't mind cleaning up after them at all...and the exercise will probably keep me living longer.  In other news, we had a bit more rain this week...so hopeful that we'll get more.  We had hay delivered and the quality is awful and the price has sky-rocketed.  The donks don't like the hay at all and I'll probably have to look for higher quality hay to feed the rabbit due to her delicate digestive system.
Sending lots of love to my dad this week before his surgery!

Beautiful seagull photo taken by Snap in Bodega Bay!

The weekly pose with the birthday boy!

 Weegie shows his utter disappointment with the new hay (I had just put it in the feeder and he didn't even rush over for it!
 SCAT ALERT!  For those of you not interested in scat, turn away.  But for those of you who are at least mildly interested, look on: I believe the above pile was produced by a raccoon!
 The bun settles into her fourth room for the day - the bedroom.  She starts in the kitchen, goes to the living room and then upstairs for some t.v. time - ending with the downstairs bedroom with us.  Of course.
 New heating pad for Toby!
 He loves it!
 And so does Bravo.
 Sometimes you gotta have breakfast for dinner:  steamed kale, tofu scramble, hash browns and strawberries!
 I love it when Wasabi "stands"!
 Silly trio - Wasabi is always fascinated by Bravo's tail.
 Hopping effortlessly by the canines!

 When she's had enough of the living room, she just hops back up to "her" kitchen!
 Clouds brewing for the rain.
 The disappointing hay - the kind that just falls apart in your hand and doesn't have that fresh smell.  BUMMER.  And expensive!
 The canines say hello to the equines.
 Happy Valentine's Day!

 The foreman shows off his Valentine's Day shirt from Territory Ahead (I scored a sale right after Xmas!).

 Transferring the bun to the bedroom!
Sometimes Toby can't quite make it all the way into his little bed.
Along with the hay delivery are the necessary pine shavings to keep the barn nice and dry!  I store these in the former chicken coop!

Relaxing in the living room.
Hang out time.

Too bad Bravo looks like an alien dog!

Taking the bun upstairs!
Watching the Olympics.

Ridiculous super hero pose!

Birthday time!

Woo hoo - sweet grain and carrots!

Just forty more years or so of this!

Poor Wasabi had to go to the vet for a nail trim.  She was NOT a happy camper!

COYOTE prints on the driveway! And then a coyote on the critter cam, too.
Paco posing with the flood waters behind him.
 The water is further away than it appears - but I'm still glad we live on a hill!

Luigi giving himself a good butt scratch on the bench!
And Paco doing the same.
The boys love to mess around with fresh straw that I put out on the mud.
Hanging out in the barn during the rain - not a heck of a lot to do!
Except maybe pee!

These turned out to be my last photos of the lambs.  As of this morning they're suddenly ALL gone.  Which can only mean one thing.  So sad.

Karina is visiting her half-sister, Emily - they are so adorable together!
