Barn Charm and You Capture Yellow

19 Nov

Barn Charm

I have a lovely barn on the top of a hill.

It keeps my animals nice and safe when they are up in the barnyard.

They like to eat the grass and weeds and shrubs that grow out in the pasture, but there’s not much left now.

When they are out there, they have a cranky llama to spit on watch over them.

You Capture~Yellow

I have one goat that is yellow.

Helen Osboer

Really she is a very pale yellow with white mixed in.

Ever since she was a kid. Β Her three-fourths sister was yellow too.

I have a lot of goats with brown or amber eyes.


I even have some with yellow eyes.

If you follow Millie’s blog, you’ve already seen these self-portraits, but I was surprised how hard it was to find any yellow around the farm.

Edited to add:

By the way, I just noticed this is my 1000th post!

      I do love the goat’s eyes with their horizontal pupils. πŸ™‚ Thanks. I can’t believe I’ve been blogging long enough to get a thousand posts.

      Helen is beautiful, but she is also a brat! πŸ™‚ I’m trying to get past that phobia of being in front of the camera. πŸ™‚

    When we rode out in the country here yesterday, we noticed there was nothing for the goats, cows and horses to eat here, unless there was hay bales left for them….nothing left to graze on. We have had two really dry years and even our own back yard has no grass anymore. Sad. Great pictures. I love your goats!

    • Teresa November 20, 2012 at 12:32 pm #

      We had a horrible drought this year, and it will be really bad if we don’t start getting some more rain soon.

    Such expressions on their cute faces!! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    • Teresa November 20, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

      Thanks! Hope you have a great holiday as well! They are quite expressive!

    Congratulations on 1,000 posts! I love the pictures of you with your goats. We so rarely get to see you!

    • Teresa November 20, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

      I’m trying to get past my horrible phobia of being on that side of the camera. I’ve decided I can do if if there’s a goat with me. πŸ™‚

  16. Elaine November 21, 2012 at 2:15 am #

    Nice the goats have a llama to look out for them!

    • Teresa November 21, 2012 at 6:46 am #

      He’s not thrilled with the job, but his presence is enough to deter predators.

  17. Marigold November 23, 2012 at 11:50 am #

    How do you manage to catch the lighting in shots without your camera ‘auto adjusting’ everything? Your camera skills are just awesome!

    • Teresa November 23, 2012 at 12:11 pm #

      Sports mode (if I have moving goats) or landscape or no flash. Play. I take several pictures in different settings. Someday, I might get brave enough and find the time to go manual so I have even more control.
