    And we have snow! The horror! Franklin has been doing well; NOT a fan of the cold, however. But we got some driving in before it got too bad, but it looks like we'll be on hold for a while. (30*F+ is donkey driving weather in my book.) We even got some pictures!

    Of these pictures includes our nice refurbished cart, which was my project for a few weeks. I not only made it more aesthetically appealing by getting a new paint scheme, but I made it much more ergonomic for Franklin and myself. This includes a single-tree, along with making it properly balanced for Frank, but with leg room for myself. (I'm 5'9" and I imagine this was a child's cart, there certainly were things to be desired prior to the remodel.) I used the same boards, but cut them all into 4" sections, painted them black, and spaced them a centimeter or so apart. Not only does it look better, but it extended the longevity of the cart and increases "dirt flow" so now material can fall through the bottom rather than wearing it out. All that is left is spray painting the other half of the single-tree. It looks a bit ridiculous only half-painted. Not sure exactly why I only managed to paint half of it.

    Franklin was a very good boy for our excursions. He is making improvements, that is for sure. Our first day with 'new' wheels I took a short drive. Mostly enough to get pictures, then maybe 10 minutes longer. Day two I took him for a gallivant around the pastures. The whole loop was pushing a mile, but he very much enjoyed it. I managed to snap a picture whilst on the road that completes the loop back into the driveway. One car passed us, and he simply stopped, then continued when it passed. Very proud of him.

    Frank is very good about staying out of inclement weather. Every morning he brays to me when I go and put a bale in the outside feeder. I take a flake and give it to him in the stall for something to nibble on. Usually the horses will stay outside and eat, but today it was cold enough where everyone stayed inside for a their meals! I knew it had to be cold when there was hay sitting outside untouched.

    BITD. My donk is also annoyed by the snow. She is braying every time she sees me and gives me the look.

    You and Frank look awesome! I need to get busy on our rigging so we can catch up.

    My donkey was braying the other morning while she was laying down-I didn't know they could do that.
