Friday’s Hunt v3.5

3 Feb

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  Sorry I was so late to make the rounds.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter.  Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be:  Starts with F, Week’s Favorite, and heart.   I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top.  I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with E:  All the E goats on the farm are: Ebony, Ed, Ella, Ellie May, Elmer, Elmo, Elsa, Elsa, Elton, Ernie, and Etoile.  The only goat on the farm right now with an E name is Penny’s new little girl, Ellie May.  Here she is with her new bling because she had an entropion eye.  That is a double E that I do not like.  At least the clip holds the lid out and it isn’t bothering her now.  She’ll be all better in a few days.

Week’s Favorite:  I have waited many years for Dolly to give me another girl.  Out of her thirteen kids before this year, only three were girls.  I kept two of them, and I put my request in really early this year to  have a girl to keep.  I know I should have favorites, but I am already smitten with Dolly’s bigger girl.   I still haven’t figured out her name yet.

Personal:  I had to get way too personal with Penny to get Ellie May here.  It was a horribly difficult birth, and the vet checking to make sure she didn’t have another kid in there was almost worse.  She’s been very sore, but she’s finally starting to act more like herself.  Poor girl.  She better listen to me the next time I tell her she’s retired.

Here’s another little personal moment–Penny feeding her girl.
