I know it's been a while, but there hasn't been a whole lot to blog about recently other than how utterly sick of deep snow we have all been. Between the snow, the job, the pandemic...it is hard to find words that feel relevant and equally hard to find words that feel creative or interesting.
All of the donkeys are doing well, though they are as sick of snow as I am. Qilin continues to grow mentally and, most definitely, physically. He is taller than Ben now, but still at an awkward, gawky stage. His relationship with Cora (and dogs in general) is interesting. He and Kaia were kindred spirits, siblings of sorts as they were born at nearly the same time. They were quite fond of each other and played together all the time. Qilin is good with Cora - now anyways - but does not have the same relationship with her that he had with Kaia. I doubt that could be recreated. He is totally accepting of my dogs and dogs he is familiar with. Strange dogs on the other hand.....let's just say the dragon half of his hybrid soul comes out in spades and I'm not talking about the friendly sort of dragon.
There are signs of Spring, my favorite season, all around. We had a few really nice, warm days that wiped out most of the snow. A huge flock of blackbirds has shown up at the feeder and we are all able to get out and stretch our legs. The Spring Rush is nearly on us and we can't wait.
