George and Alan try to rustle up a game of Cone

Hey, look! She's smiling.



Of course she is. We're charming and irresistable.
Let's take her the cone and see if she wants to play.



Squeeze in here and grab a corner, mom. There's plenty of room.



Uh...thanks, but no. I'll just stand on the sidelines and watch, ok?



Have it your way, but you don't know what you're missing.



This would really be exciting if we had more players.




Let's see who we can recruit.



Yo, Deets! You wanna play Cone?



Heck no! You guys don't play fair.



Pick on somebody your own size.

  3. Maybe a friendly game between 7MSN and Morning Bray? Could Alan & George defeat Bernard & Ellsworth? Just a thought...

  5. There's nothing like a rousing game of cone in the morning to get things moving along. Very cute.

  6. I love George and Alan with their cone!

    I have been waiting for the banner photo w/o Lyle, as I knew it would be a reminder that would trigger tears. It also represents acceptance of what is, and I love that you are doing that so gracefully. Thanks for the life lesson!!

  7. Ok, that was too cute. We're definitely thinking of investing in a cone after hearing about the bucket incident from the neighbors. :)

  8. Just wondering, has Deet's tail EVER been down? :-)

    Thanks for my morning smile !

  9. Fantastic post as always, you have such a talent for putting these pictorial together - love it. The new title picture is gorgeous but did bring tears to my eyes, life moves ever forward doesn't it.

  10. Love the burro boys and Deets, well...he rules!

  11. MorningBray - "a" cone?? No - you must invest in at least a dozen so that your pasture, too, can look like a construction zone. (Home Depot has them.)

    Bibi, Deets' tail does go down sometimes when he's perched on something - I think it's a balance thing. Otherwise, it's always high in the sky.

    Good Morning 7MSN! Wish I had some cute pic's of a couple of burros to post, but that's why I come to your site. Plz kiss George & Alan for me today... they're so stinking cute!

  13. I am missing Deets' bad boy shaved cuff. (but glad he's all better)

    Cone looks fun! I think it was a good thing you didn't take part, though. They might take advantage of a rookie.

    George and Alan are the highlight of my day. Have you thought about a small stability ball? I have seen horses play with them.

  17. "George and Alan Invite You to a Game of Kick the Cone." Cute little guys!

  18. The new month's banner shouldn't have caught me by surprise, but it did. (The momentary tears were just what I needed to fix my sleepy-dry eyes. You improve your readers' lives in so many little ways.) Hugs to you and your herd again. It's nice to see Alan and George looking out for you :)

  19. The header is beautiful Linda ;-) (BTW, "we" hit 5000 this morning!)

  20. Deets should be happy they didn't decide to play a game of 'Cat.' Of course a game tool that fights back is never fun.

  21. I'll bet they'll be so glad when spring comes and they can roam the range and...play with sticks instead of cones! They are all so cute.

  22. Gawd, I love that cat!

  23. That is too cute and funny, love those two longears.

  24. Your new header is beautiful. And how can you not smile when those two try to cheer you up?
    Hugs to all the critters~ :)

  25. Got my dose of the daily funny!! Love those guys! And Deets, I bet you could have kicked some serious ass out there!!

  26. OK, I need to get my girls a cone. How long does it last? Last summer I got a big red ball that you hand for horses and they kinda liked it. Any other "toys" you give them. I need ideas for my girls... I love my donkey's and yours are adorable!

  27. Too cute!

    Still thinking of you all - and I feel most for you and for Hank. I guess it just takes time.

    Glad to see things movin' on there at your ranch, though. Thanks for sharing your photos and life. :)

  30. Thanks Linda... I forgot to ask you about where to get cones earlier today. A dozen at least it shall be and thanks to you, now we know where to get them. You're so the best.

  31. Deets just cracks me up - he is always coming around...even despite the fact that Alan generally tries to chase him or stomp him. That kitty cat is a brave one! lol

  32. Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!

    Gecko is still alive! I've been thinking about your blog a lot lately, and wondering how everything is going at the ranch. I certainly miss catching up with the crew every day. :( Things have just been so hectic, I've had to limit the time I spend on the computer and therefore blogs have had to be dropped on the most part. :( But it's great to see everyone's still as cheeky as ever! :P Kepp it up hun, you're doing an awsome job!!!

  33. What a hoot; those two are quite a pair, and I'm sure they are an endless source of entertainment :o) What a fun post!

  34. Does the cuteness ever end with those 2? (ok, I already know the answer to that). They give my bunnies a definite run for their money.
    The County Fair is in April and they have a BLM wild horse/burro auction.... I'm SOOOOO tempted...
