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.

Llenny

15 Feb

I don’t know what to do with Llenny.  He was doing better.  I had him eating a quart of sweet feed and a pad of good alfalfa hay every day.  He was picking up weight.  Then he quit eating.  I don’t know why.  The vet came, and he had no ideas.

I’ve wormed him and given him probiotics, but I’m at a loss.

I also let him out, so he could have company.  I thought it might be the isolation that was causing him to quit eating.  I don’t think he’s left the Love Shack or the space that was fenced around it, but the goats have certainly come in to provide him some company.  I guess now I just keep hoping.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I do have this week’s list at the top of my side bar.

Just Some Farm Animals

5 Feb

Last month I signed up to do an on-line digital photography class.  About three days in, I got the e-mail saying the class was no longer going to be offered, but since I had started it, I could finish.  Oh, but it would no longer be available after Feb. 15. I have been frantically trying to finish the class, and I finally did last night!  Now I might actually have some time to practice what they taught me.  These are just some of my first efforts shooting in RAW.

I think I like it, but it’s a lot of work.  I’ll have to save that for special occasions.
