My dear Jack. He is so beautiful. Only don’t tell him that because he’s very manly. MANLY, I tell you. Manly. He’s handsome. He’ll take that. Only he doesn’t really care. All he cares about is Poky. And his food. (Not sure if that’s the right order.)
Jack has never been up here to the goat yard before. Poky lived up here with the goats for about a year before she moved down to the meadow bottom. Jack is new here. What are these….goat….THINGS?! He tries to ignore them, though they are a bit pesty. He refuses to eat with them. Jack doesn’t share food well, even with Poky, and definitely not with goats. Poky eased right back in to sharing dinner with the goats. Jack has to have his food separately. Because he’s slow Jack. Easy Jack. Laid-back Jack. Don’t-mess-with-him Jack. Stay-away-from-his-food Jack. It takes him about five times as long to eat as anyone else and he can’t stand competition. (He’s very interested in health and nutrition. He chews his food properly, according to dietary recommendations. Everyone else is finished and Jack is still eating.) Other than that, this has been a good move for Jack and he’s adjusting nicely. And I enjoy getting to spend more time with him! I love my donkeys.
In other news, in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been changing up my posting schedule some. I’m releasing myself from my intense schedule of only posting first thing in the morning, shaking things up, feeling my oats. For example, yesterday evening I posted on my Crafts page. (Shocking! Posting in the evening! I felt very wild). If you keep up with CITIR on Facebook or Twitter, you’ll always know when a new post goes up. (Or if you subscribe to my RSS feed.) You can always also just check the Main page where you can see post titles, images, and dates to clue you in to what’s new.
