Meet Pocahontas

Jun
8

Finally! You get to meet Pocahontas! We went all the way to Ohio yesterday to get her. I’d tell you about the trip mile marker by mile marker, but I bet that’s not what you’re here for.


You want to see Pocahontas.

And here she is!

Wait. Wrong photo.

Here she is!

CLOVER! (Just between you and me, I think she’s a little jealous of all the attention Pocahontas has been getting lately.)

And now, Pocahontas!

Sheesh, you’d think I could take better photos than that.

Let me try again.

Pocahontas is six months old and almost as big as she’s going to get. She is a sweet, lovable, absolutely adorable….

    Cute overload! And she’s lucky to come live with y’all, who can appreciate all that cute.

    Now you’ve got the donkey, you’ll need a minature pony/horse to keep her company (or is that vice versa). Anyway go you and your menagerie!

    She sure is a cutie!! I don’t know about miniature donkeys but donkeys are good herd protectors and they will fight predators. She looks too sweet for that.

    Heard protector was my thought, too! The Giant White Puppy and Pocahontas, will make a formidable team, lol!

    Oh yeah! Predator protection in the lower pasture with the sheep and the hogs. Pocahontas can keep the coyotes and stray dogs at bay. Everyone wants to eat lamb, easy to kill and tasty and delicious.

    JEALOUS!!!!! i love mini donkeys. there is a farm that i pass everyday with some. we always point and scream “there they are. hi, i’m a miniature donkey!!!!” yeah i know, it doesn’t take much to entertain us.

    Love her!!!! So so cute and fits right in with your farm. I love the miniture horses and donkeys. They are one of my favorites to visit at the fair. We went to a miniture horse farm once and they taught their horses to do tricks. It was neat.

    I know you will enjoy her. Now does she get to live on the porch for while with CoCo. lol.

    WOOOOOT! I was wrong! I was wrong! Everyone laugh at me now! LOL :lol: LOL :lol: LOL

    I don’t feel very silly though, I was nicely entertained while I searched and tried to figure it out.

    Your actual Pocahontas is very cute Suzanne! We’ll all watch for more pictures of her and how the other critters react to her… and she to them too! :sun:

    Oh, stop it!!!! Seriously, now I’m wanting a miniature donkey. Have you ever seen the miniature steers? Really little. Perfect for you. ALSO, you really need a Babydoll Southdown sheep. Check out the photo.


    Southdown Babydoll Sheep

    I’m sure there’s a breeder somewhere near West Virginia.

    Ooops, anyway, search Babydoll Southdown on a search engine and see what you think.

    Ack! I didn’t know they came in miniature form! I. Want. One. Sadly, I’m sure they’re not allowed in a subdivision in New Jersey.
    I’m so glad you got a donkey! I can’t wait to hear more about her!

    We can’t have all of those great little animals where most of us live but we can pretend we do…thanks to you for all of the sweet pictures and many tales and tails. It’s therapy for the day!

    She is so cute. You are luck to have all those animals but I know they are alot of work too.

  34. 6-8

    I want her!!! She is too cute. I’m so jealous of all your animals and your farm. Can I come live with you?

  35. 6-8
    8:10
    am

    Adorable. But they are herd animals, so you will definitely need at least one more. Our next-door neighbors to our farm have seven, and they move around like a many-legged unit.

    Be prepared for the braying, though. It sounds pretty eerie on an otherwise quiet night, to suddenly hear what sounds like an old woman moaning. Loudly.

  36. 6-8

    How adorable! In all this time of trying to guess a donkey never entered in the guessing game. Can’t wait to hear more :)

    She’s going to need a friend so she’s not lonely. *g*

    I’m psychic! I said yesterday when I read the post, “I bet she’s going to get a jackass!” I just wasn’t thinkin’ *tiny* jackass! LOL! And uh…well, it’s a jenny instead of a jack. I was CLOSE!
    Welcome Pokey! Now if she thought Clover has a hard head, she ain’t seen nuthin’ yet! :)

    :heart: How cute! Now will her coat always be long like that or will she eventually have a smoother shorter one?

    OMG – I’m dying here in the apartment – no goats, no chickens, no giant puppy, no sheep, no piglet, NO MINI DONKEY!!! How sad my life is! I am so grateful to you for giving me a glimpse of what life SHOULD be like! I know Princess Morgan appreciates it, but do the boys realize how lucky they all are? Pocahontas is adorable. Will you dress her up? Have a fashion parade with Clover and Annabelle? Oh, you must be having so much fun along with all your work! :heart:

    Gee, did you need something else to take care of in your spare time? How cute! Can’t wait to read stories about her.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
