Donkey Time - baby burro painting by Debbie Grayson Lincoln

6 X 6 Oil on Linen Panel
SOLD to a collector in Florida!
The elections are over and I am so glad I can now get back to my farm and animals without constant interruptions to vote for this or that candidate. In all honesty I cannot believe that it will make a bit of difference who was elected. The politicians are ALL donkeys anyway, and the sun is setting on a world that won't be seen again for a long time. I could be sad, but I am choosing to be busy instead.
The winter garden is doing well (except for the green beans which were done in by an early frost). We haven't harvested a deer yet, but I am still hopeful. We take no pleasure in shooting them, but I sure do enjoy venison stew when the weather turns cold.
Aunt Abbey is feeding her two "babies" well - and us, too. Together the calves probably weigh over 600 pounds now. At 4 months, that's pretty good growth. We'll be weaning and selling one of them soon and putting another dairy calf on her. Carl's bull has been visiting for the past month, too, so hopefully we'll be looking forward to another calf next summer.
Trudy, the German Shepard pup, has grown huge, and at 6 months is already intimidating when she barks at visitors at the door. We are beginning her training in a couple weeks - after she gets spayed Monday.
Ezekiel 17:9
Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Will it thrive? Will it not be uprooted and stripped of its fruit so that it withers? All its new growth will wither. It will not take a strong arm or many people to pull it up by the roots.
