Yesterday when Ted and Bluto were being loaded up I snapped a photo of him... I think they have figured out, when strangers arrive.. if they point at you and either Hubby or I pick you up - you are not coming back... don't you think Bluto knows what is going on?
It is all ok, really. Ted and Bluto are going to be the pets of a six year old little girl as a gift from her Grandpa :0)
Earlier in the week the goats were in the back yard. Sometimes we let them out of their pen into the back yard to give Hubby enough time to get in the pen and set up their feed. It sounds like a good plan, but as soon as the goats hear the grain falling... they are all over it. Anyway... this one day, they were going nuts, as Hubby got a phone call and was held up. So I had a million goat in the backyard climbing the tree, going up and down the back porch, and then suddenly I heard a thud.... Some of the kids decided that if they jumped up on the back of Hombre, my donkey statue, that they could then reach the leaves in the trees. But so many tried to jump that they turned him over. But hey, it was ok, now more of them could fit on the side of Hombre!
They really are silly and a ton of fun to watch. Yesterday morning we were sitting out in the pen just after feeding them their hay. We had fed Coastal, and they prefer Alfalfa.... and Jill well she thought that maybe we hid the "good stuff" under the Coastal. And she was using her horns to dig to the bottom. When she wouldn't find it... she would run to the next pile and check it. Oops... she sort of had a problem at one point. She was tangled in a huge wad of hay... but she didn't let that stop her! She just took off for the next pile like nothing was different. But a few of the kids... well they saw breakfast on the go!
Last night just as the sun was starting to set I headed out to get a few more photos.... I was asked a couple of weeks ago how Gabby is doing now -
I looked over into the Boys Frat pen.. and Jose was just standing there quietly watching. All the other boys were vocal and running up and down the fence line. A few of the girls were VERY interesting to them. But Jose... nope sweet and calm...
I then went over to see about snapping a few of baby Flavio and some of the "adults"... well just as I got to the pen and was about to snap a cute photo of a group of the ladies.... the entire group heard "Dad" with the hay cart coming around the barn.... that is the sound of dinner. Sort of like hearing the ice cream man around the corner.... They were gone in a flash!
But then... I heard a banging noise.... UH OH!!! Peso was in a bit of a jam..... But before I ran to get Hubby... I had to snap a photo ;0P
Now speaking of being in a bit of trouble.....
I was laughing at Peso and started heading back towards the yard to check on the dogs... uh oh
I told Hubby to not leave his good work shoes on the back porch... looks like this one is no longer in that good category... seems to be missing a bit of leather and a part of the shoe string. Chica... she was really enjoying it though - I snapped this from a distance over the back fence... she had no clue I could even see her....
Heard Libbie barking, and came around by the gate... she saw the neighbors dog playing in the donkey pen...
Normally I capture this shot from inside the yard and only see her from the back... Look how intense she is... there are "those dogs" on "HER" property.... only 10 inches tall, but totally in charge!
Well that is it this week. Sorry nothing great of Tuco... oh there were a few shots this week I wished I had my camera... like when he decided to play "pool party splash" in the water bowl in the kitchen... yep soaked everything... Or when he found the new bulk pack of 12 Mega rolls of toilet paper while we were gone... Lets just say He had LOTS of fun then... and then hid when I walked into the hallway. Or how about when he thought it would be fun to bring a cicada or as we Texans say around here a "locust" inside to play with then have as a snack.... Yes.. his is really in his teenage puppy times now! LOL
Hope you have a great Saturday - and I really hope that Animal Crackers gave you a smile to start the day!
