Visiting a new farm sanctuary, HOPPY Valentine's Day and more at the Lazy Vegan!

Getting caught up with the blog again!  In the past few weeks I visited a new farm sanctuary in Sebastopol with my friend Cathy where we were both smitten with all the animals - especially a young jersey calf named Ranger!  There were also pigs, alpacas, a donkey, ducks, geese, chickens, turkeys,emus and plenty of goats! I am really impressed with the young couple who run the place - it looks like a lot of hard work.  

The donkeys and bunnies enjoyed extra treats on Valentine's Day (and extra hugs and kisses!).  And I got a new load of hay - the hay hasn't been that great this year so I've been taking the truck to get bales myself versus having them delivered so I can inspect them first!  

HEE haw!!  With Paco, of course.
The professional loungers.

This is big news:  even though the "new" bathroom has been here for over three years now, Rufus just recently started to explore it - and now he is obsessed with it!  Constantly going in and out and around the claw foot tub.  It is too cute!

The night guard bunnies.

The emus!
And Whisper the donkey!

 I thought these texts were funny - Cathy went to one feed store to inspect the hay and I went to another and we compared notes!

 I only got eight bales.  Still not great hay.
 Morning walkies.
 Hilarious selfie with Snap and Jennie!
 I love this photo!  Snap and I always run into this guy in Sebastopol and he's great.
 Another selfie at Taylor Maid coffee.

 My neighbor visited the donks and buns this week and she is a hoot!  She's a tad scared of the donkeys but is getting braver every time.  We celebrated the donkeys belated birthdays!!  I cannot believe they are both eleven!

A co-worker took this photo of us on Valentine's Day!
 HOPPY Valentine's Day!

 Donkey cookies!

 They ate them right up.

Also in the past few weeks I had a birthday!  Short video below of celebrating with my new cow umbrella!

The Women's March, Grooming Day at SaveABunny and Birthday Brunch at the Lazy Vegan!

It has been a busy couple of weeks!  Loved going to the Women's March in Sebastopol with Snap where we rocked our pink hats and joined a parade down Main Street!

Spent a day grooming bunnies at SaveABunny rescue with the bunny gals.  So many bunnies needing homes and so hard to leave empty-handed!  I especially loved cuddling an endearing little skinny fellow named Water Man. 

And had a super fun early birthday brunch with bunny friends!  Yep, tomorrow I turn (GASP) fifty-three!  The years keep on going on and I keep on going!

Our reflection in the bank window during the Women's March!
Snap wore the hat Andree made and I wore a hat made by someone on Instagram who sent it to me for free for last year's march!

Ran into my awesome yoga teacher!

Back at home with this ridiculous donk.
Rufus watches the donkeys eating breakfast.
Bunnies being bunnies!

A double rainbow!  I tried to upload a video of this rainbow with the donkeys but couldn't do it.  So just imagine donkeys watching the rainbow!
Evening buns.

 "Auntie Cathy" came over to trim the bunnies' nails and say hi to the donks!

At SaveABunny in Mill Valley.

With Water Man!

So many bunnies!

Got to hold a baby bunny!!
Be still my heart - an adorable wire fox terrier Snap and I saw while at Taylor Maid coffee.

Life is pretty tough for this cuties.
