Wethers and an Oriole

30 May

Everybody likes to hang out with Myson in pasture.

It might be because he’s tall and quite talented at pulling those branches down so they can eat leaves.

The others are not so successful without him, but I love the spot on Casey’s belly when he tries it.

Marley thought his boy should just hold the branch for him to eat.

Myson wasn’t going for that though.

“See ya, Pops.”

After watching the wethers trying to eat the tree, I spotted this young oriole on my way back to the house.

Sorry for the poor quality.  It was getting dark.

    Good pictures. That is cute how the others want some branch too. Ha! We’ve had alot of orioles this year. Great shot of it. Chilly out; just came in. Boy, I want some sun,but not that heat they’re saying we’re to get by Friday!

      Thanks, Jan. It would be nice to stop the roller coaster weather we’ve been having.

    They’re so cute. Lucky you, spotting the Oriole.

      The oriole flew up right in front of me and just sat there. It was certainly a happy surprise.

      I was surprised the bird just flew up in front of me and sat on the branch. I do love my boys!

      I do love the orioles. Of course, I love my goats too. 😉

      They have amazingly stretchy necks! That’s for sure.

    at least they try to work in tandem. 🙂

    • Teresa May 31, 2015 at 9:08 am #

      Sort of. They just want to reap the benefits of Myson’s talent. 😉

    Goats were uncommon when I was a farm child, One person in the community had one. It frequently escaped. One morning it was standing on the roof of the family car. Your photos are grand.

      They were pretty unusual around here too when I was younger. The last twenty years has really seen an explosion in the goat population.

    Myson is so smart! Love the Oriole!

    • Teresa May 31, 2015 at 2:05 pm #

      Goats really are smart creatures. Usually too smart for their own good.

    I bet Myson likes to show off his talent for reaching the higher branches. 😉

    • Teresa June 1, 2015 at 10:32 am #

      Myson just likes eating. 😉

    Great pictures! You’re right! Casey does have a cute spot on his belly! The oriol is beautiful!

    • Teresa June 2, 2015 at 8:00 am #

      I just adore my Caseydoodle.

    Myson has to be very popular! 🙂 Cute post! Love the light in the photos. And the oriole is wonderful!
