People Are Who They Are!

Back on Donna’s Farm

I haven’t done a post on Donna’s farm in a while and it does continually change. She has added some new animals and it is always a trip to go up there. She has recently added some turkeys and they are sitting on eggs. There are two males and two females in the pen right now. She is working on splitting off the goat pen so that the turkeys can have a big yard to run in.

This is Black Sabbath. Donna is an old rock and roller, can you tell? lol

I forgot this one’s name. You have to have an excellent memory to remember everyone’s name up there. Between the dogs, the cats, the goats, the pig and the turkeys, it’s difficult to keep up with who is who! This one has some beautiful coloring though when the sun hit’s him just right.

This is one of the females. You have to excuse the poop. They won’t let her in there to clean the cage right now because they are sitting on eggs. You can see them inside the uh “dog” house. lol

A couple of the goats sitting around wondering why in the world I was taking pictures of the stupid turkeys over there instead of them. Dumb people.

Punkin says, “See I’m much more photogenic!”

Then of course there is Charlie Mae. Being the “hussie” she is, she is of course pregnant again.

This one is pregnant too. She came over to make sure I didn’t miss taking her picture.

This is Cindy. She moved to the farm a few months ago. It is difficult to get her to come out for photos but she graced me with her presence this particular day. Donna rescues animals as you know and this pig had been over fed and was about to die from all the weight she was carrying. I know you say, she’s a pig, she’s supposed to be fat. But when Donna first got her she could barely walk because her stomach dragged the ground and was causing sores on her. Donna has spent a great deal of time with her and she coaxes her out of her uh “dog” house, and gets her to follow her around the yard to get some exercise. She has actually lost weight now and is getting around pretty good.

This is Edie and Poo Tuck. They slide through the fence in the goat pen and chase the goats around. It’s very comical. I guess they don’t realize that size does matter. lol

This is Leena. She just sits back and takes it all in and keeps an eye on the smaller dogs.

This is Sir Rufus. He likes to watch the turkeys. I think he’s secretly hoping one of them escapes one day.

And this is a picture of Donna that she would kill me if she knew I used. But I wanted you to see how big Clementine is. He is a Great Pyrenees that you saw as a puppy last year. He is actually very long haired but Donna shaves him in the summer. He has a wonderful personality and is the protector of the goats. He loves his momma, can you tell?

Well, you can say you’ve been to a farm this week. I haven’t done a fun post in a while and so I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

  1. Thanks for the mini-vacation, nice to get out in the country. Too bad we can’t add sound and smell to WP. Squealing hogs, gobbling turkeys, and the sound of a pregnant goat. Good thing Sir Ruffus keeps both eyes on his prize, not much change of a free dinner. Love big dogs, their kisses are sooooo
    so wonderful.

    • Yeah, sound would be nice, although the noise level up there can get pretty high if anyone’s feathers get ruffled. When all of the dogs are outside (there are about twenty or so) and the goats start yelling to get fed and the turkeys get started, and us women and girls are all trying to talk over each other and the animals, well, there’s nothing quiet about it I assure you! lol There’s never a dull moment there.

  2. Wonderful post! Love the pics! Hey, we ain’t askeered of no chick poop! (or turk poop neither)!

    I’m glad Cindy has lost a few pounds. And Clementine is beeyootiful! 😀

    • Glad you ain’t askeered Lauri. Just don’t wear new shoes while you’re up there! lol Clementine is definitely a beautiful animal!

  3. I love it! You did a wonderful job capturing the animals’ personalities in your pictures. Having grown up a city-kid, I love to visit farms and see animals and get a chance to interact with them. Thanks for the tour!

  4. Thanks Steve. These animals are definitely all full of personality. I grew up a city kid too and I love to visit there. Donna is such a great lady and fun to be around along with the animals. I’m so glad you enjoyed the tour!

  5. I know what you mean about turkeys’ iridescent feathers.
    Pregnant with WHAT?!? A new planet?
    Clementine looks like a dear-heart.

    • lol Kim. Charlie Mae actually looks good this time. She’s only carrying two babies and both are on the sides. Last year she carried three, one on each side like that and a third one in the belly underneath. She was huge. She is much more pleasant this time so apparently she isn’t nearly as uncomfortable.

      Clementine is a doll baby. He has a wonderful personality with people as long as he likes them. If someone comes near that fence that he doesn’t feel good about though he is one bad ass dog. He will also go nuts if an animal comes around that he thinks might harm those goats. He knows his job is to protect them. We know that there is a family of coyotes around and I can hear him having fits up there at night sometimes and I know the coyotes are around somewhere.

  6. Punkin is adorable – I want to reach out and touch that floppy ear. This post takes me back to growing up on the land – all our animals had their own personalities too – from delightful to plain mean. 🙂

    • You are so right, Punkin really is adorable. Most of the goats have really good personalities. Felicia is in the pen with them all the time helping Donna.

      I love your new profile picture!

  7. aww! adorable. i want a farm now. 😛 (until i actually have to work,that is.)

    July 19, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    • Thanks Christina. You are so right! It’s a lot of work to run that place. She has a lot of animals up there to take care of.

  8. That’s a great post, thank you! Love the dog-hug picture. No reason to kill you for that. The lady has (a) lovely tanned and well shaped arm(s). Reminds me a bit of my mum’s actually LOL She’s been a nurse for many years and you can tell that she is used to some heavy lifting.
