Donkey's feet

How many blokes does it take to do a donkey's feet?
Answer - 3.
One to do them and 2 others to keep him company.


Rachel had had hers done already and Sheba was standing patiently having hers done. We get the farrier out every 12 weeks to do their feet, this keeps them in tip top condition.
I thought all the animals looked so lovely hanging out in the evening light. Cactus had just had his hooves done, and the alpacas were standing by for company. 


Herbie and Stella have grown so much - Herbie is a total bruiser. He looks so like boy. Stella is tall and dainty, like a supermodel of alpacas.

Stella looking gorgeous


Cocoa looking not gorgeous! To be fair she was eating her dinner! She doesn't usually look like this!

  2. That Stella is gorgeous! Cocoa is too.....in an I have personality kind of way. To be fair though, no one looks good when they're eating.

    1. They really are, and sort of calming to have around the place, they're just so gentle.

  5. 3 men sounds quite economical - I don't have donkeys now, but I KNOW how they can be. Great photo of Stella, but poor Cocoa looks like I would if you caught me eating my dinner. Which you won't, thankfully :-)

    1. Thankfully our donkeys are the most gentle of gentle! The farrier actually likes coming to do their feet cos they just stand there!

  6. Cocoa is funny! If she was a human she'd be getting you to delete that! And I love your new header.

  10. They are so cute! My OH has been eyeing up Alpacas for ages, and would love to have donkeys... you may have converted me!
    I'm told Alpacas make really good "guard dogs" and are very loyal.
