Security Breach AT&T!

There was a security breach today in the donkey pasture which put all the animals on alert. A lineman from AT&T knocked on the door to tell me he needed to climb the pole in our pasture. He wanted to know if the donkeys are aggressive. I had to laugh to myself and hope for his sake he didn’t have carrots in his pockets. I assured him it would be safe to go into the donkey pasture.

Apparently I forget to tell the donkeys……….and goats……….and emus.


Here’s a little video of the action.

    As a first time hobby rancher/farmer I have a lot of cautionary tales to tell. I learned this one the hard way. Frappaccinos belong in the cup holder in your car, not on a rock in the barnyard.

    Years ago I named my blog Everyday Miracles and Mayhem because there always seemed to be something going on that fit into one of those two categories. Hobby ranching just increases the odds of these things happening. While my miracles do not rise to the level of biblical proportions, they are still miracles to me. Mayhem is subjective. Since it's my blog, I get to be the judge. Geese eating my newly planted California poppies qualifies today. The sight of Stella, my gypsy hen roaming free, far from the safety of the chicken yard is, in my mind, mayhem.  Thistle everywhere is mayhem. Fields of clover are a miracle. The fact that Diana can still run despite her recent weight gain is a miracle. A turkey burger that actually tastes good is a miracle. A pure white Icelandic chick is a miracle. Six foot tall emus grooming a mammoth donkey over a fence is a miracle. Without the fence? Mayhem. Having my Cricket scooter to ride down to the far pasture to visit with the donkeys is a miracle. Finding bearded purple iris growing in the far pasture is a miracle. I'll leave you with mayhem in this first installment…

    Fainting goats Laverne and Shirley tolerate Tucker as long as he stays on his side of the fence.  Shirley is just curious about Tucker.  Laverne wants a piece of him!  Today Laverne and Tucker got into a little disagreement. In this case, good fences make good neighbors and nobody got hurt.
