When Sky Met the Lladies

21 Feb

It was bound to happen that sometime I would be outside with Sky when the llady llamas came up from pasture.

I was a bit nervous about how they would react because llamas are used to protect sheep and goats from coyotes, so dogs are not usually a favorite of theirs.

Sky was pretty oblivious to the girls checking him out.

The girls were quite calm.  I was impressed.

There was no sounding the alarm or anything wild.

Odie even got brave enough to sniff noses.

It was really rather boring for a first meeting.

That’s the way I like it!

Although I have no plans to ever let them meet without a fence between them.  It’s much safer that way.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt, I have this week’s list at the top of my side bar.

Playing Again

20 Feb

I’ve been playing with the settings on my camera again.  I discovered I can take a picture and have it saved in both RAW and jpeg formats.  That’s nice!  Here’s a couple of my pictures from this beautiful weekend.

I have to say, I really hope that Llenny managed to breed both girls before he became so ill.  I know he bred Odie, and I hope she settled.  I’m not sure about Maybeline.

It would be nice to have a cria from him–a girl if that’s not too much to ask for.

Friday’s Hunt v3.7

17 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.  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 H, Week’s Favorite, and Chiaroscuro or shadow.   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 G:  My goats that start with G–Gaston, Gaston, George, Gidget, Gila, Ginger, Goliath, Gomez, Goober, Grace, Grace, Gretel, Grey, Grover, Grover Jr., Guido, Gus.  Currently, the only goat who starts with G is Gidget.  She’s a good girl.  She’s a lot rounder than the picture below because she’s due to kid on March 6th.

Weekly Favorite: The house kid is doing better.  Ron has gotten to go outside a few times, and I’m hoping to get him back into a pen in the greenhouse this weekend.  I’m not sure he’ll get to nurse his mom again, so he’ll probably always be a bottle kid, but he’s doing much better!

Pink:  Sky loves to lounge on his pink shower mat.  Yep, I sacrificed it to him.
