Will there be a new kid in town?

Saturday was all I could hope for in a day off work.


Getting-things-done started-weather.

Oh-my-aching-muscles weather!

First things first, I opened the gate between Happy and Abigail’s lots.  They immediately moved into the other’s lot.  The grass is always greener syndrome.  For Abigail, it’s true.  Happy’s lot is greener!  Happy’s light-weight frame and small hooves do not trample the grass.  The animals enjoy the change of scenery but choose to not hang out too closely.  Happy annoys Abigail until she turns and butts him out of her space.

Oh my gosh, this is the best salad, EVER!

Oh my gosh, this is the best salad, EVER!

Soon, Abigail, you will have a much bigger pasture to graze!

Happy tweaked his ears when my phone rang:

Is that for me??
Is that for me??


Pig farmer began removing rock for a landscaping project … with the help of the old red truck (https://justmakethecoffee.com/2012/11/29/old-red-truck/) and faithful, old Hunter:

Old Faithfuls
Old Faithfuls

While Saint lounged in my flower bed:

Mom won't let me sleep here much longer, I bet.
Mom won’t let me sleep here much longer, I bet.

Today … I fell in love with another face:

New kid in town??
New kid in town??

Can I talk pig farmer into letting me get him?  I’m praaa-cticing positive thinking!

Stay tuned…

  1. Wow, looks a productive and fun Saturday. I really enjoy seeing the pictures, too, and getting an idea of what your part of the U.S. looks like.

    I love weekends like that. Enjoy work projects in the yard. I think the goat is just to cute but wouldnt it need a play mate? So will pig farmer think that if you have the new goat that he should get some pigs. I know Lisa just got a truck full this week. It might get pig farmer thinking….Just a thought.

  3. Cute little donkey and cow! I found your site by searching “black lab.” I can’t keep mine in his fence, and I’m trying to find a solution. We live in a semi-rural area in north Alabama. We keep Samson and Snuggles in a nice chain-link fence, but Samson (black lab) sometimes escapes. Any suggestions? (This is what I blogged about today.)

    • I am looking forward to checking out your blog! Black labs are such stinkers about getting where they want to be … and they think they are about 1/8th the size they actually are! Maybe a “fenceless” collar system?
