One Day In Pasture

9 Jul

One day, we had a light shower and two goats left their babies in pasture.  What kind of a mother would leave their babies in the pasture in the rain while they come up to a nice dry barn?  Margarita and Sidney. That’s what kind.

Sidney

Anyhow, I hiked out in the rain to try to find the babies.  I went all over, but I never did see them.  I did surprise myself though when I turned and saw a baby great-horned owl.  It was only about fifteen or twenty feet away from me.

What a cutie!  It was so nice to just watch me and let me take a couple of pictures (with my phone because it was raining after all).

Anyhow, after it quit raining, I cajoled the herd into going back out to pasture and asked Margarita and Sidney where their babies were.

When they went to the right, I went to the left.  I mean, I really did want to find their babies, but I had my real camera and wanted to see if the owl was still out there.  Look!

Then I went and saw that Margarita’s babies were dry and back with the herd.

Not too far down the ditch, we caught up to Sidney’s boy.  He was wet.

Frosty

I hauled him back up to the barnyard.
