Today is not only Mother’s Day, but it is also Jody’s birthday! We had double to celebrate! There is no better way to celebrate than to have a Green House and Young’s Hill forage, we even set out a whole coconut (I bet you can guess who ended up with it)! We love celebrating Mother’s Day, why not tell the strong women who helped shape who you are how much you love them! We do have a few mothers at our sanctuary including Jody. Jody is kind, nurturing, and always making sure that everyone is safe. For Jody’s birthday we set out lilacs because she loves to go on the Hill and find things like thistles, spruce trees, etc. Well, it turns out Missy LOVES lilacs and got most of them! Jody did get one of her favorites, which is the top of a pineapple (she was pleased)!
Missy eating all the lilacs:
Neggie had a nice relaxing day. She foraged on the Hill in the morning all by herself, attended the party, and napped for most of the day (it was pretty exhausting):
Power pose, Negra actually jump with all her might to get the enrichment, it was very exciting to watch:
Annie gathered some lilacs and then ventured out to the Hill to forage:
Burrito stayed pretty close to the birthday girls side, but found some opportunities to enjoy a drink and go on the Hill:
Foxie actually found the coconut and tried ever so quietly to sneak away:
Foxie eventually ditched the coconut and came back for it later in the afternoon, however Jamie heard Foxie trying to crack it open on the new structure and Jamie food peered her way into getting the coconut…
But Foxie did get to enjoy herself at the party:
Jamie enjoyed some cold drinks and some snacks as well:
Later when it was very warm Jamie and I took a few walks, when she got hot she would just hide in the shade:
Jody spent a lot of her day laying around, enjoying good company, and eating some of her favorite things. That sounds like a great 43rd birthday to me!
The birthday girl, Jody:
Cheers Jody! Happy 43rd Birthday (Missy is holding the drink):
