Rafer Johnson Turns ONE

On Saturday, July 19th, Rafer Johnson had his first birthday!

I was out of town, so his party was delayed until I could get home, and now that I am, we'll be celebrating.

He has been nothing but a joy since he arrived, and I'm not quite sure how we managed before he got here. Was there a time when Salina did not have a constant and loyal companion? Or when we did not get endless donkey hugs? Or I did not have a barn manager to help me perform every chore and task? It's so hard to remember a time without him.

Thank you, Rafer Johnson. You're the very best.

Happy Birthday Rafer! He's the sweetest little guy ever and I sure hope he enjoys his party.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Rafer Johnson was quite the mischievous donkey yesterday, my first day back. He seemed intent on sticking close to me but wanted to play tag or something with that velvet nose, which he stuck into my armpit at every opportunity! By the end of the day he was ready for big hugs and some gazing.
