We have had storms all day starting around 2 am this morning. Tank and Duchess goes crazy with thunder and lightening. I had to bring them in to help them get through it and I finally got Tank to settle down when Winnie came over and lay down tight against him. This is how they have spent the day. Once Winnie wanted out and I let her out and when she came back she curled up tight against him again. Duchess is hovered up against my bed in the bedroom and has not moved. These are our big brave farm watch dogs - hope no burglars arrive here during a storm.
When I was making pictures Tank would come over ever so often and sit and pose as if to say he wanted his picture taken. Donna had taken him in and had him groomed and he comes home smelling wonderful and was a BIG white puff ball - but it didn't last long.
The young goats love to play on the big old dead tree. They play king of the hill and try to get to the highest point and keep knocking each other off.
When I went out yesterday to fill the birdfeeders I noticed something white in the edge of the woods and then wanted to shout for joy when I realized it was the snowdrops in bloom. They looked so beautiful among the dead leaves. Life is beginning to stir again in the earth.
Yesterday I took the dogs for a walk up the hill and in the pasture. The young goats walked with us and kept an eye on us to see what we were doing. The older goats were more concerned with eating hay and lying in the sun over on the other hill.
After a walk on top of the hill Donna and the dogs head home. Today the valley looks quiet and peaceful.
Well here is another picture of Dood. As you can tell by all the pictures we post of Dood she is Queen of the house, or thinks she is. Donna decided to cut her toenails and she was not happy. This is not her happy face!
The morning started with a beautiful sunrise and on the hillside across the valley a huge flock of wild turkeys were announcing that a new day had arrived.
