My Youngest Saanen

Sam Goodberry is my youngest Saanen.  Today he was in the yard eating yellow flowers (aka dandelions) with a yellow cat lounging around and keeping an eye on him.

Yep.  It’s Alphabe-Thursday, and the letter this week is Y.

Looking for a Llama

It’s generally not a good sign when you see a wake of vultures over the pasture.  They were feeding on the remains of a goose that a coyote got.



I’ve decided I need to devote some time and energy to finding another llama to be a guardian of the herd.

No matter how diligent Bob is, I’m not sure how my little livestock guardian cat would fare against a coyote.

I went to the sale barn today.  They had a huge assortment of animals (even laying hens), but do you think they had a llama?

Nope, so I’m still looking for a llama.

Bob’s Scavenger Hunt

This week’s Scavenger Hunt is all about Bob.  The items are: Time, On My Plate, Animal, Negative Space, and Photographer’s Choice.

There’s a lot on my plate, so I’m enjoying the longer days.  The goats are going out to pasture.  They might be complaining that there’s a Bob on their plate.

I also have time to take a walk in the pasture now that the days are long and warm.  Bob oftentimes likes to walk with me.

Obviously, Bob is an animal.  I’m thinking of making him a livestock guardian cat since he’s so comfortable out here in pasture.

(Negative Space) He can sit on the rock and watch over everyone for me.

Photographer’s Choice.  Bob doesn’t always like to pose for pictures, but when he does, it’s magic.

I love my little Bob cat.
