Every day now, I shut the gate at the driveway and let Buttercup and the donkeys out to mow the fresh, green grass around the house and studio. Up near the gate to the upper pasture has become Buttercup’s favorite place to sit a spell after she’s had her fill. Work has begun on the upper pasture fencing repairs, and hopefully by the end of the week, I can turn Buttercup and the donkeys out in that big field. (I’m probably going to keep the donkeys with Buttercup for company until BP and Glory Bee come back–I don’t want Buttercup to be lonely. That will give Patriot time to settle in, and Zip will hopefully be arriving in a few weeks.)
I think Buttercup heard that pasture would be opening soon. She’s waiting! She wants to be first in!
