Who’s There?

You never know who might pop up when you’re walking through the pasture.

We’ve startled young deer a couple of times this summer.  The last one was so little yet that it didn’t really know how to run away from us.  I didn’t have my camera though because I was playing hide-n-goat-seek.

An All Over the Farm Scavenger Hunt

It’s time for Scavenger Hunt Sunday again, and there’s no theme this week.  The topics are:  Make mine a ___, Quirky, Morning Ritual, What Were They Thinking?, and What’s in your ___.

What’s in Your Cornfield?  I had a deer in mine last night.  I’d bet she was scoping out which rows she’s going to claim as her own.

What Were They Thinking?  I just put clean water in that pool, and now it’s all dirty again!

Make Mine a Mystic Jules.  That’s what I’ve named the kitten we found in pasture.  Nobody has claimed her, so she’s getting fixed this week, and she’s here permanently.

Morning Ritual:  My morning ritual is to go out each morning (and evening) and holler for Haley.  She comes on the run.

Her morning ritual is to see how much grain she can eat in the short time we’re in the chicken coop.

Quirky:  I suppose some would think it quirky that I milk my goats and enjoy their milk in my coffee and on my cereal and pretty much any way.

It’s good stuff though.

Critter Visitors

I’ve had all kinds of visitors lately!  Two nights in a row I got to see some deer.  First they were in the pasture across the road.

Someone wasn’t too happy when Stella started barking.

The next night, they started across the road and then came to visit me.  One young one was awfully bouncy.

The handsome cardinal came to visit again.

He had his lovely lady with him.

I’ve had all kinds of birds at the feeders too.  The starling loves the suet!

I somehow lost one of my suet feeders.  You’ve heard the saying, “They will always return to the scene of the crime.”  I guess that’s true in this case.

Cute little thief!

Finally, I had this adorable little bird sit outside when I was filling the bird feeders.  He was sleeping awfully sound.

He flew to the fence.

It was only a moment before he returned to the ground.  I was kind of worried.

I did check later and he flew away.
