My cousin Daniel (who has been visiting Niger with my father and is heading back with him on Monday) and my nieces Tabita and Priscilla recently visited Ishtar’s Ark and all the critters.

I was thrilled to have visual updates again!

The fillies have grown so big since I saw them last, reminding me of how much I miss watching them grow!

Dennis was thrilled to see Daniel again, and I was thrilled, because I don’t think I’ve ever seen Dennis this happy!

And social!

Not bad for our old Mugu!

The girls had lots of fun interacting with the horses,

… but then there was a small discussion between the equine and human young ones as to whom the ball belonged to? Kalahari insisted on ownership but the humans weren’t too sure…

In the back, the goats are doing well,

…and Tabita and Priscilla investigated the playground that we’re making out of the fallen gao tree.

Did I mention that our does might be expecting?

Young Rudolf wasn’t quite it, so we had a certain Ralf stay with them for a few weeks, and he certainly seems to have done the trick!

Looking forward to all that milk later this season!

Hope you enjoyed the visit as much as I did! I know it was quick, but don’t worry, I’ll be back in six weeks. Still counting the days….. :-D
