Another Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This week Ashley gave us the task of finding the following:  Pink, Old School, Walk, Accessory, and On My Table.

Pink:  Bambi’s nose is about as pink as they come.  She is adorable, and she’s a brat.  I love her though, and she’s due to have kids again on April 1.

Old School:  I feed my goats old school.  I have small bales that I take pad by pad to feed them.  For some reason, the first thing Millie (or many of them) does is dump the tub and eat from the ground.  I’ve honestly given up on most of the tubs.  Can you tell Bambi gets her pink nose from her maa, Millie?

Walk:  If you remember, I shoveled paths for the animals and me.  They were so nice, but now they are mud.  Really, really, muddy. And there’s ice underneath.  That makes them a bit treacherous.

Barnyard Trails

Gidget and geese

I wanted to take advantage of our beautiful day by going for a walk in the pasture, but it was a bit snowy and sloppy.

I don’t know why it would be slushy with thirteen inches of snow melting quickly and running off the barn roof.

I didn’t make it very far.  I had to admire the beauty from a distance.

Accessory:  Mother Nature must have decided we needed a splash of color in the winter landscape.  I’m glad to have this cardinal accessory.

On My Table:  At any given time on my kitchen table you’re likely to find a basking or bathing cat lying among the plants.

They are pretty sure the table belongs to them.  And I can see that I should wash the muddy paw prints off the window again while the weather is nice.

Happy Geese

The geese are enjoying our nice weather.  They finally have soft, sloppy snow to take a bath in.

They also have the run-off from the melting snow to play in.

Some geese get a bit carried away with trying to take a bath.  It’s not quite deep enough for that, but they are having fun.

Along with cleaning themselves, they like to filter through the mud and look for yummy little bits of stuff to eat.

Weekend Reflection

Yep.  They are happy geese with the wet sloppy pasture.

Water Quality Is Important

I really do worry about water quality and runoff from fields.  I do what I can to protect the waterways on my little patch of the world.
