Maaing About It

27 Nov

This is Vinnie’s doe Veronica.  She’s awfully cute, but her personality is a lot like her maa.

What’s she maaing about?

She was on one side of the very muddy barnyard, and what she wanted was on the other side.

Finally, she’s back with her maa.

Although, I do belive she’s old enough to wean.

Leftover Scavenger Hunt

19 Apr

With rainy weather all weekend and my habit of procrastinating, I didn’t get my pictures for this week’s scavenger hunt, so I’m using leftover pictures from earlier in the week and forcing them to fit the prompts:  from above, drink of choice, jewelry, local and I found this.

When I was walking in the pasture, I found this little fungi.  Not sure what it is, but it’s cute.

I also found the vulture, or rather he found me.  I kind of like the drama of the silhouette against the clouds.  It was a bit disconcerting when he was circling above me.  I got worried for a minute.

When I was headed back to the barnyard, I took this picture from above.  The hills are good for those sweeping vistas.

I didn’t have a new picture of Fawn with her eye jewelry, but she’s doing quite well.  I thought she was going to hop down from the branch; didn’t know she was going to fly, so you get this one out of focus, but you can see she’s enjoying herself.

Does Bambi’s collar count as jewelry?

The drink of choice around here is milk.

Not all the kids have to fight to get a drink.  See Bambi’s girl Thumper has two to herself.  Doesn’t quite seem fair, does it?

Finally, just a couple of shots of the local kids playing.

There’s lots of playing going on now.  You can see a video here.

Bambi and Thumper

5 Apr

Bambi finally decided to give birth.  Of course, she was five days overdue and waited for Easter dinner time, but she has a beautiful little doe.

She’s got this funky little ear thing going on that I think is adorable.

Bambi surprised me with only one.  It looks like Bambi has enough to feed at least three.

Wish we could divide that milk up a bit.
