Animal Crackers - Hanging out in the Shade

Howdy -

Pat-Man wanted to be first up this week!

Found him hanging out under the tree near the water with his Mom Patti yesterday late afternoon. Man was it HOT here! Humid Hot! So most everyone was trying to hang in the shade. Patricio was trying to get me to come into the pen for some hugging... and he got his way of course! He is such a love!

Gracie is beginning to like it living in Franks pen...

You see Franks pen has the best shade of all the goats pens. And Gracie has tried to claim Queen of the pen I think - she is a bit of a control freak. But with looks like that she can get away with a lot! 

Now most all the donkeys were in the shade yesterday afternoon. Unless their was just a need for a good dirt roll... then you had to move out into the pen for that - 

Sonia was just finishing up her rolling around... nice and dirty now... feels so much better. Never have  understand that one. Sonia is one of the last ones to loose her long hair, looks like we will have to get out the shears and help. 

Found Momma Cat in the cat house yard enjoying the shade of their "jungle"... large weeds in reality, but they love playing and hiding in them. She is getting more and more friendly. 

The first batch of chicks are now looking like chickens - This is one of the Bielefelders-

She is really getting her coloring in and is getting darker - love the stripes. I have been calling this girl the mighty hunter! This gal can catch a fly in a flash! She is a master at it. The others still do a bit chasing and sometimes get a prize. But this gal - Man she is well.. A Mighty Hunter!

The Dorking Chickens are the smaller of the first chicks and Hubby calls them the odd black birds -

 They will be really pretty spotted and striped when they are all grown up... this teenage time is a tough time for them. Wasn't for all of us though?

Well hope you got a smile this week - I will be back tomorrow for Garden Sunday and a second post for The Whimsy June Release!

Have a wonderful Saturday!
HUGS and

love the picture of Pat Man! His ears look so long in this picture and Gracie is gorgeous! I never got the idea about rolling in dirt either but I guess you will do whatever it takes to get rid of the bugs!!! Thanks for sharing all your babes with us! Vickie
