We’ve been getting some rain. Showers, not storms. Great news for July in Illinois.
Baby pumpkin at the base of the blossom. 🙂 I love watching the pumpkins develop.
“Good morning!” say the goats:
Today, it was Pumpkin Pie that provided my morning entertainment.
Here she is, early this a.m., in the east barn, where she gets her special feed twice a day. She and Happy have side-by-side pens. Happy is an un-gelded donkey (he isn’t neutered) … which means he has more of a propensity to be, well, an ass, so he isn’t allowed to run with the other animals. But he keeps very close eye on what everyone is doing.
Plus, he knows I give him any leftover crumbles Pumpkin Pie may leave. He stands by with hope in his eye.
Shortly after her breakfast and while I was eating mine, Pumpkin Pie got adventurous. She decided to explore a small paddock that she hadn’t bothered with before. It is on the west side of the house, straight away from my back deck. The view from my office this morning:
Pie was in a jolly good mood and I clicked several pics of her enjoying her new discovery. (I will post those soon, in another post.)
It wasn’t long before I heard Happy braying. He couldn’t see what was going on from his guard on the east side of the house. He was at full attention:
For today, be on guard for delightful moments!
