Alan helps with the chores

Maybe she'll give me extra carrots if I help her clean the corral.



Let me take her this bucket.



Yikes. That's too heavy. Maybe I should just hand her this rake.



Step away from the wheelbarrow. It's my turn to help.



How do you move this thing?



Maybe if I put my teeth into it...



I suppose I could just tip it over.



I give up. Maybe she'll bring me carrots if I ring this bell.



And she did.

  11. Can they possibly be any cuter?! Did you just get really lucky or are they all like this? I want some...I knew the ending when I saw the bell!

  12. Well it's just a miracle that you get anything done without them - how do you cope when they're not around???

  19. Well thank goodness you've finally got some real help around there. They should make your life so much easier!

  20. They remind me very much of asking two three-year-old twins to help. You spend as much time straightening up after them!! That said, they are adorable and deserved carrots just for being entertaining!

  26. I tell ya....having the donks around is sure going to cut back on the part time ranch hand economy!
