It occurred to us that we Frenchies hadn’t visited the donkeys in quite some time.  It was snowing yesterday, but we got on our warm coats and headed down to the donkey paddock.

Walking around the farm the other day, we spotted a new addition to the grounds.  Because we Frenchies have insatiable curiosities, we just had to go and investigate.

Francesca gave us all quite a scare when she started having seizures last week.  We all thought that there might be something seriously wrong with her brain or that she might have epilepsy.  However, we all were greatly relieved when an animal neurologist discovered that a bulging neck disc was causing all of Francesca’s problems.  …

As promised, we Frenchies, went to the main greenhouse where Ryan keeps all of the smaller agave plants.  He and Wilmer have been quite busy repotting them.  And from the looks of things, those plants really needed to be repotted!

The farm looks pretty covered with a blanket of snow.  Snow also offers something else.  It allows us to see all sorts of animal tracks – some quite normal and others quite surprising.
