A Visit With Ramsey

From my visit with Ramsey yesterday....

Aroma therapy for donkey babies.  I stuffed the middle of his favorite toy with Emma's hair.  He plays with it whenever he is alone in his stall....

No more IV and drinking on his own...

Playing tug-o-war and showing off part of his spiffy new hair cut...I might have to find him a leg warmer.  Are those back in style yet?

"i WIN!"

"HOW ABOUT A REMATCH?  i'LL EVEN LET YOU USE BOTH HANDS, just as long as you put that camera thingie down and use them for scratching.  i've got another itch..."

Is this what you'd call a one-legged-reverse-Mohawk?  It's what all the fashionable donkeys are wearing this season.

I tried to get the the vets to let me take their picture with Ramsey, but they were camera shy.  I've never seen a barn aisle at Cornell clear out so fast.

  4. Aw, glad to see he is looking & feeling so much brighter.

    Why not cut the sleeve off an old fleece jacket & stitch some velcro round the tiop for a made-to measure donkey legwarmer? Much easier than bandaging :)

  6. Looks like both you and Ramsey have your sense of humor back, wonderful, good sign! Now can we somehow get that Nor'easter to make the same detour around you as Sandy? Best wishes always, e.m.

  8. I'm so pleased to hear that Ramsey is continuing to improve. It sounds like it will be hard for the Vets to part with him! I can't wait to see him home and frolicking in the pastures again.

    As always, thank you for taking the time to let us know how he is doing!

  10. I'm visiting from the crazy donkey lady's blog at Bow Street Flowers. I'm glad baby Ramsey is doing so well!

    I can appreciate everyone clearing out when someone mentions a picture. I'm camera shy, too!

  12. Hmm. I was looking at an older photo of Emma and some of her winter coat was left.. it was the same color as Ramsey's. Is he going to change color when he loses HIS winter coat?
