A freind of mine is volunteering at the PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary.
This week she invited me to come out to snap some shots of the donkeys and other beasties and to meet Sheila Burns, founder and donkey care taker.
Please check out their web site to see the wonderful work Sheila and the volunteers do to rehabilitate and take care of these lovely donkeys.
There are so many curious and friendly animals there, I couldn’t choose just four or five to post, so here, to warm up your late winter, are some cute pictures of happy donkeys, ponies, cats, pigs and a sheep. Oh, and my lovely friend Mel, who invited me out.
Went back out to check in on the wee sheepsies.
Mamas and babies are all doing very well. Read more “Lamb Update, Eye Portrait, More Suburbs”
Last week I posted some photos of the sheep at the family farm I was house sitting and mentioned the ewes were close to having their lambs. Read more “Sheep Make More Sheep”
Last weekend I checked out the Steelburners playing at the Pig’s Ear. Read more “Steelburners, Beasts and Midwinter Poem”
At the encouragement of my room-mate, and with his generous donation of some Impossible Project film, I took mom’s old Polaroid camera out with me last weekend. Read more “Polaroid Test”
I’m beast minding for a friend this weekend. Read more “Beast Minding”
I was out following a storm and saw a beautiful sloping field dotted with sheep under one of the storm front clouds. I stopped to ask the farmer if I could go into his field and shoot his sheep. He went into the barn to turn off the electric fence and came out asking if I’d like to snap a photo of a lamb being born.
This was the first moment the lamb raised its head.
