A Day on the Farm
Don't shoot me, but I wanted to show y'all what our day on the farm looked like as a family.
First, Little Guy, his cousin, and a baby pygmy goat (nine days old!).
Here's Little Guy holding one of those darling little pygmy babies. LG wants to run an animal shelter when he grows up and is already talking about earning his high school volunteer hours at a local shelter.
Maybelline fed the cows after the farmer called them over using a coffee can full of corn. She jumped when the cow licked some out of her hand.
What better photo opp than a cousin holding a baby goat? Two beauties in one shot.
And two redheads in one shot. The neighbor raises thoroughbreds to race and this one and I fell in love. He just nuzzled like crazy once I started scratching.
My Hunny spent an hour or so shoveling poo into his truck. Here he is taking a break, after spitting out the dried poo which was flying around. Maybe windy days aren't the best time to shovel dry poo.
Last, but not least, Oatmeal Head takes a break from helping dad shovel poo. He called me paparazzi. Rude child. Okay, so I took more than 300 pictures. But not all of HIM! And he's wearing one of his favorite shirts - it says Got Mullet?
Honest to Pete, tomorrow I'll have up pictures of Fred & Bessie on the farm. They had the time of their lives! So did we. And we all showered when we got home. The End
Until I write again ...
