That’s all I needed.
Now our farm is complete.
Except for our chickens in the spring.
And maybe a puppy I find in a box on the side of the road (why does everyone but me find boxes of abandoned puppies??? I did pull a kitten from the median of the interstate, but where my puppies at??!).
Meet our newest members of JJ Ranch! Doc and Bingo! Doc is 1.5 years and Bingo (his brother) is 6 months!
Here we are meeting Bingo when he was a week old!
We went through Newman Flick Farm in Ashland City, TN. Kristen Newman has been my kindred spirit for many years now and I absolutely love her husband and their son. She got me into mini-donkeys! Their donkeys are so sweet. Not only do they come up for kisses and lean on you for affection, but they alert you of predators.
Newman Flick Farm loves on their animals like it’s going out of style. If you want a mini-donkey, they are the only ones I recommend. They imprint of their babies from day 1 (handling, cuddling, etc). They’re on Facebook!
It’s been just 3 days since the donkeys joined my farm and I couldn’t be happier.
Jonboy has no desire to have donkeys, but he has gone along with all my animal obsessions, because, well, he is amazing. I married a good one. He has been working hard putting together a donkey shelter. I will be painting it barn red once it’s done!
Everyone keeps saying, “But what are you going to do with them?” Um….love on them? (Duh).
I’ve basically fulfilled a childhood dream by building our mini farm with 2 horses, 3 dogs, 1 cat, and 2 mini donkeys. That’s it. No more. 😉 ALL my animals demand my affection and just to do my daily rounds of lovings take at least a few hours. It’s such a blessing and they’re all definitely my saving graces.
So, if you invite me out and I say I have plans…I do.
I own a farm. And you can see how amazing I dress myself.
I’m busy loving, mucking, chasing, cuddling, sneezing, and training. And I wouldn’t change it for the world.
