More Introductions! Foxy & Holly Get A Great "Relocation" Package!

Greetings from the Funny Farm!

Today we are taking a break from the K-9 Clan and their antics to introduce a few of our donkeys and to make a very BIG announcement!!

Drumroll please........barrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

Foxy (aka "Lady Foxglove") and Holly (aka "Happy Hee-Hawlidays) are getting a new family! Congratulations to the Reinbolt family on their new additions! Along with their new human mom, dad and two sisters, Foxy and Holly are also getting two K-9 brothers (Jake and Winston) and two 100 pound potbelly pig brothers (oh gosh, how rude of me to not know their names - eek)! Get ready girls....lots to learn at your new home! Foxy and Holly won't be far from us, just a few miles up the road, and they'll be relocating in the middle of you think they'll still be able to hear the hee-haws from the Funny Farm at their new homestead and send replies??

CiCi also has a new family....the Manganos - Happy Birthday Jenn! Cici will remain at the Funny Farm, as her family doesn't quite have enough space for her at their place. Cici's mom is "Ranch Hand Jenn", who'll you'll see regulary here on the blog! Cici also has K-9 siblings....they will be properly introduced in a post in the very near future!

The following photos were taken during one of the Reinbolt's recent visits. All credit goes to Sydney for her fabulous photography skills!

Cici (aka "She Sells Seashells): "Oh shucks! Is today the photo shoot?? I totally forgot...give me a minute to primp!" Ugh...I really need to get to the salon....this fuzz is out of control!!!"

The soon to be Reinbolt Girls....Holly (lighter brown) on the left and Foxy (darker brown on the right.

Rosa (Foxy's mom): "Pardon me, but it's hard work keeping up this girlish figure of mine.....CARROTS!!!!!! Oh, sorry.....CARROTS, NOW!!!!

After sufficient treats from the Reinbolts, Rosa begins her gymnastics routine.....under close scrutiny by the international panel of judges, the following results were submitted:
Germany: 8.5 (Good form and synchronicity, costume lacked lederhosen)
Russia: 7.5 (Fine incorporation of traditional moves with modern flair, like "pasture-ized" ice dancing)
Spain: 9 (Big fan of her ancestors, thought her rhythmic ear moves were stupendous)
US: 9.5 (Loved the music, the "down-home feel" of the routine and the hee-hawing)
France: 6 (Didn't think she pointed her toes properly, so nit-picky - it's always the French judge bringing us down!)

Foxy: "Um....hello...excuse me said you had CARROTS! MORE CARROTS!! Maybe you didn't understand me........CARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROTS!!!!

Foxy to CiCi: "Stop flicking that ridiculous tail in my face! The people think it's cute....not me!!" Ahhhhh...ahhhhhh...ahhhhhh.....chooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo"

Holly: "If I stand here and bat my eyes, the people find me irresistable. I get 'em every time! "

Foxy: "If I only had my binoculars, I could see my new home! Westward Ho!"

Pandora (Holly's mom): "Ha ha ha hee-haw hee-haw! That's a great joke Cici! Stop, stop.....I'm getting a cramp in my cheeks! Ha ha ha hee-haw-hee-haw!"

Foxy: "I heard Pandora laughing....wondered what was so funny....tell me....I'm dying to hear this!
Cici: "An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked. As they went along they passed some people remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding. The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right so they changed positions. Then, later, they passed some people who remarked, What a shame, he makes that little boy walk. So they then decided they'd both walk! Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride. So, they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people who shamed them by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey. The boy and man figured they were probably right, so they decide to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal and he fell into the river and drowned. The moral of the story? If you try to please everyone, You might as well...Kiss your a$$ goodbye!"

Congratulations again to the Mangano and Reinbolt families! You are very lucky to have such sweet little creatures in your lives!! And, I think you will understand why my motto in life is so often: "Never under-estimate the power of a Hee-Haw!"
