Topper at 3 Weeks
Topper, our first miniature donkey born on our farm, is absolutely a dream. The video posted here is him at 3 weeks old. We let him and his mother out to roam the property and he had a blast. He explored everywhere.
He also managed his first solid food. Every leaf he found went into his mouth and he was soon munching on them everywhere.
This little guy is so loving when he hears Katrina or I coming (more…)

I don’t have many rules; at least I don’t think so. One that I do have is no cats in my office. One rule Katrina has is Dick has no rules. I hate cat hairs on my keyboard and on my desk. Katrina likes her animals any where any time.
When I am in my office, door open, door shut makes no difference the cats stay clear. Katrina comes home, walks in my office and the cats march in behind her like she is there secret weapon and protector (which she is).

Katrina loves animals. I don’t care what it is she loves it. Sometimes I think when I return from an out of town trip I may find a donkey in my bed and some straw in the barn for me. Just kidding, Katrina would never let a donkey into her bed, they won’t lie still!
This is Katina’s other Bird; 1965 Thunderbird!
Just to show you how much she does love little critters let me tell you a story. First of all you have to understand as much as we love animals we also share a love of fast old cars. You can go to our other Web Site Legendary Collector Cars at www.legendarycollectorcars.com to read and see more about that part of our lives.
Anyway, Katrina was in the dog yard and found a baby bird that had fallen out of its nest and was about to be consumed by a snake (more…)

When we moved from Southern CA to Middle TN the most often asked question was why did you move from California? This question always came from a native Tennessean and never from one who had lived anywhere else; they already knew the answer.
Our responses to such questions usually depended on our current situation and what we were doing at the time. This past holiday weekend was another reminder. No one asked the question but (more…)
