There are more than just birds at Side by Side. There's quite a few mammals too.
The donkeys I seldom see, as they reside in the pasture behind the barn. Their names are Max, Eliza and Pearl.
But the star of the show is Ruby.
Some mornings she'll come bounding over the fields to greet me. She hunts for small vermin in the weeds and brush, she walks right over loosely draped shade cloth and steps on chinese cabbages, she lounges about on the porch.
