Animal Crackers - Some are Smart... Some are not...

Howdy -

You think these three are a little sad? They know when we have shows.. as I start stacking things up for Hubby to load. Yesterday afternoon these three were all laying near my pile with long sad faces. You would think that we abandon them for days at a time... LOL They know we never leave them too long. Just not hear every second for them... hate to tell them I am working ahead now they think every time we go out the door that is it.. then as soon as I come back in, even if it is 5 minutes later they act as if I have been gone for a month! LOL Sweep puppies...

Hubby snapped this one a little while back and I don't think I shared it. This is Sweet Pea... She had a problem....


Only a couple of the goats wear collars.... and Sweet Pea isn't one of them. hmmmm...  So now how did she get it off one of the two older girls.. how did she get it around her neck... and how did she get her leg stuck as well? hmmm. Oh well Hubby saved her and took it off her. But as I have trained him well he snapped the photo first. :0)

Now the chickens have really been down on their egg productions lately... one to two a day is what we have been getting lately. Normally I get 6-9 a day. But yesterday I was dancing around happy when I went out to get the eggs... 

One of my little heritage girls have now started to lay!!! Not sure which one, I tried to get someone to claim their little tiny egg... but they were just interested in the bag of lettuce in my hand. So happy... so the other girls should be right behind her! So excited!!! Should get some blue or greenish ones soon.

Now the reason my older girls productions numbers are down is one the heat... and they are really into their moulting time.. a few just are not their prettiest right now.


But we still love them...

One more ... not the best photo, a little grainy... but it was too cute to not show you.


You see when the moon is high and full the donkeys love to roam around in the moonlight. But then the days you need to crash and take naps. This was about 6pm when had just come home and were coming through our gate... all three standard donkeys. Cocoa, Teddy and Valentine were crashed out cold! Valentine actually was laying out flat when we first came through the gate but just as I snapped he raised his head up to make sure we were ok. As soon as he saw it was Mom and Dad he flopped back over. We aren't no big deal. LOL

Well today I am doing a Doll Show. Not many antique dealers attend this show. Maybe 1/4th of the dealers. I have done it a few times over the past couple of years. Not Hubby's cup of tea... LOL But Since I do the antique bisque dolls and antique doll furniture and the show is only 15 minutes from home I like doing it. Wish me luck! For selling and for finding a few goodies too! :0)

Hope you have a fun day planned!
Have a great one!
HUGS and -

Aww, those poor puppies, SO neglected - NOT! :) Love the photos of Sweetpea (you'll never solve that mystery) & the scruffy chicken, hope it's getting cooler for all of you now. Have a great weekend & lots of success at the doll show.

Poor pups! LOL! I know just what you mean. Sweetpea was jealous she didnt have a collar! So she stole theirs :) Enjoyed your pics and stories as usual and I sure do hope the Fall comes soon!
Hugs,

Good heavens where did my weekend go? I missed stopping by yesterday. Love the sad faces. Dogs can be so funny. Either two eggs are big or one is TINY. :) Have good luck at the doll sale. hugs, CAROL DEE

I know how these doggies feel; as soon as I start rumbling around with holiday stuff, they don't leave me out of sight (and they always come along with us !) The moment I open up the back side of the car they are in it and won't come out anymore (thinking I might forget about them). Hope your show was good. Hugs, Helen
