Becoming one with the herd

The past five days have been a whirlwind of activity around the 7MSN. We can't remember the last time we've had so much social interaction...or so much fun!

But all good things must come to an end, and Tuesday night the herd gathered in the pasture with their new friend Danni one last time before she returned home to Oregon.

I was trying to get them all together for a group picture but wasn't having much success...


because Alan started to roll, then Danni started to roll, and I started to laugh and haven't been able to stop.


See what happens when you spend too much time hanging out with this herd? 
You turn into one of them.

  19. The pics really capture the fun and silliness that you all were apparently enjoying - how fun!! Lucy just kinda looks like she is thinking "they are all nuts!"

    ReplyDelete
  20. Okay. I admit, I've never seen that before. Definitely way up there on the silliness scale.

  21. Fabulous! Love the look(s) on Lucy's face. And Danni's at the end, too. :D

    I've really enjoyed seeing Patrick's story on all three of y'all's blogs. Might have to schedule a sight-seeing trip to NM sometime...maybe one of those "Homes of the Stars" tours...

  23. I'm smiling too!!! Thanks to all 3 of you, (you, Danni and Justina) for letting us in on this latest adventure. We'll have to get a daily dose of Patrick now as well as Danni's animals and yours :)

  24. That series of photos is priceless. The look on the burros faces as they watch Danni "dust" is so funny. Now that's what I call a houseguest who's willing to get down and dirty. The Olde Bagg, Linda

  27. From her expressions I think Lucy knows now she has moved to the "funny farm"!

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOL!!! Love the shot with Alan laughing at Danni and the one with flared nostrils! Great post Linda! Thanks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. HA! With Danni rolling, Alan braying, and George copycat rolling: I'm sure you were all in stitches!! What did Lucy think of it all!!!

    When are we going to see pics of your time at Morning Bray (besides the time you spent with Patrick)? Not trying to be pushy here :)

    I know you were all sad to see it come to an end!

  30. Yet more proof that animals like it when you join in their games.
    Lucy's a riot.
    Did she move a HAIR while she watched Danni roll?

  41. This is so gorgeous! There is something about Donkeys! I don't own one but I have had quite a lot to do with them in the past. They are so left brain funny little people! I just adore them. How could you not roll with them. I think I would start eating grass if I had a herd of donkeys! LOL
