I woke up Saturday morning to my Farmer reminding me that I needed to clean the donkey pen.
You see, the donkey is mine and Violet's;
He was a swap with my neices while they train our mini horse
(Click here: "mini horse" to read about it).
So, the donkey is our "responsibility."
Once the baby was down for her morning nap,
I headed up,
and could see that work was already in progress.
There he is:
our fine specimen.
don't be mad with me.
I'm cleaning it up today."
It's a camera.
It's not edible."
Violet had a shovel outside the pen.
I'm not too sure what her job in this was...
but obviously she hadn't done all this.
My farmer had decided to help me out
Such a good man.
While he headed out with the manure,
I trekked over to the barn to check out the goings-on in there:

Everybody was enjoying my Farmer's hard work...
of mucking out and putting in new straw.
While I was snapping the happiness in the barn,
I assumed Jake was safely in his field.
which was faulty reasoning.
I suddenly heard the kids yelling for me outside the barn.
I ran out to find Jake in the middle of the road
with our neighbor patiently going around him in his van.
We have such kind, understanding neighbors,
for which I am incredibly grateful.
Apparently, the site of this garbage bag was just too much for Jake's curiosity to resist.
"Come on, Jake.
Come see what we did for you."
"Look how clean and cozy your new bed is."
"Now just try to keep it this way until spring."
