Yesterday it rained! And rained pretty good. We didn't get as much as some of our friends around here - We got less than an inch. One friend got close to SIX inches! Wowser! More is predicted for today, but I don't think we will get close to that measurement.
I kept waiting for it to stop late in the day to get my photos, but it never stopped completely before dark. So late afternoon it slowed down some. So I braved the rain and Hubby and I made a trip around all the pens to check on everyone and snap a few photos.
What we got was photos of lots of soggy animals. LOL I think they were enjoying the cool wet. Well all but the goats. One drop and they were not happy campers. A couple got real wet due to the fact that they couldn't find any room in each of the huts, or at least the huts they wanted to be in. Finally everyone was settled and was "safe" from the dangerous wet stuff falling from the sky.
Shockingly the chickens were out in the rain. Hubby keeps telling me they are CHICKENS. They do not have large brains at all! But my chickens I thought were smarter than that!
The young donkey girls were all lined up in one of the huts. They looked like they were enjoying the cool rain as well... until it started raining hard then they got smart and went for cover!
Sonia was still out walking around in the rain. She was REALLY SOGGY.
Oh yes, her Dad Black Jack LOVES to get soaked and enjoy the rainfall...
Now this is a guy that really really really hates the rain. He is a goat so it makes sense, but Peso seems to really pout and get so sad when it rains.
Now this next photo made me grin. We have become a little paranoid about the dogs. Not that we could have done anything for Tuco, but we keep watch over the dogs even more now. I hate to have them out and not be right there with them. Which is silly... but Anyway, while roaming around all the pens, we can still see the backyard. Libbie on the porch watching the rain and all the animals. But Autie and Chica...
Actually... seeing them play and have fun was so worth it, we don't mind having to clean them up. Since we have taken a good portion of fur off of Autie (you can't tell can you?) since lightening his fur he is playing more and seems to having more fun. I mean that face there... that is his puppy face that we haven't seen in a long time. Full out running having fun - Chica... that face is I want to fun and have fun but it is starting to rain harder and I am just not to sure about it anymore. LOL
Hope you have a wonderful Weekend -
HUG a furry baby -
