Around the Farm

24 Jul

I think I’ve decided that the three goslings who hatched this spring are two girls and a gander.

Just some more of the goats.

Coral eating those horrible thorny plants

The bucks seem to be starting to come into rut.  Oh lovely smells.

We have had some beautiful sunsets recently.  This is partly due to the smoke in the air with the wildfires out west.

I’m going to try to improve on this windmill picture.

It’s been a while since I did much wandering around the farm just to take some pretty pictures.  The deer has made that pretty easy though.

It really doesn’t have any fear of me.  It’s heard me and smelled me since it was born.

I try to stay a respectful distance, and it doesn’t seem to care.

I do think it’s found the bucket of water I put out there.  That’s a good thing since we’re still hot and dry.

    Are the girl geese any nicer than the ganders? It seems like they would be, but I have no idea, really. I only know that the geese my dear mother-in-law had were mean and nasty. But they were really very tasty, when she roasted them for a big dinner!

    Aladdin and Jasmine are so cute! – It’s hard to believe that the bucks are coming into rut already!

    What are those thorny mean-looking plants, anyway? It amazes me that goats will eat that kind of thing.

    I really like the windmill photo. I’ve always liked windmills. The sunset pictures are very nice, too. The fawn is just lovely. You’ve gotten some really good pictures of him/her.

      The geese can be mean no matter their gender. This group is horrible. I’ve never had such mean ones before (usually it’s just protective during the breeding season).

      The plant Coral was eating was sand burrs. They are horrible.

    So glad you had some time to just wander the pastures to get this group of photos. Really enjoyed seeing all the critters.
