A Goat-Filled Scavenger Hunt

12 Apr

The topics for this week’s scavenger hunt are:  neglected, signs of spring, last thing you bought, shadow, and four things.

Neglected:  Pistol’s little girl triplet seems to think she’s being neglected.  Anyhow, while she was in the middle of the herd happily eating, she was screaming her head off like she was being neglected.

Sadly, my goats’ hooves have  been neglected.  It was so cold, I didn’t get them trimmed in the winter, and I’m struggling to get them done again.  I’m slowly making progress (and have the blister to prove it).

Signs of Spring:  Green grass coming up is one certain sign of spring.

Another is the happy kids playing on the rock.  If you want to check out the video of them playing, it is HERE.

Four Things:  I had a hard time finding four things.  I kept getting five or two, but I finally found four things playing on the tree.  Video HERE.

Shadow:  Fez, Litha’s quadruplet with the bum leg that is healing quite amazingly, is my shadow.  He is stuck to my side, and he’s doing enough better that he’s gotten to go to pasture with me the last couple of days.

Last Thing You Bought:  I guess, other than a gallon of milk, the last thing I bought was my new Nikon D7100.  No point in showing you another picture of it, so here’s Victoria (taken with the camera) and her kids.  She’s doing much better after just a couple of days having constant acess to hay and eating in the yard.  Her kids are doing better too.

Sadly, she’s decided the tulips are tasty.  Oh well…

And for Weekend Reflections, I have a bovine eye with her daughter reflected in it.  Don’t ask me how she got the mud balls on her eyelashes, but it looks uncomfortable, and she wouldn’t let me take them off.
