|Somebody is curious as to what I am doing down here...|
|A little black hen, looking for a private place to nest...|
|No privacy with barn cats around....|
|Good old Lamb (his name), always gentle and calm.|
Lamb (above) was the kids playmate when they were little and has always been a tame and friendly companion. He has had some tough injuries and some miraculous recoveries and has earned a place of honor here on the farm.
Earnest, (below) was also injured as a lamb and bottle fed with our family. He has been a close companion of our daughters' over these years and he gets to be on pretty thin ice at times. Emma and Earnest will fight a bit and it's not uncommon to hear her yell at him and see him run off as he knows he's in trouble. He seems to be in a perpetual state of "mischievous teenager". Basically, he can be a real brat.
|Earnest, at my back door yesterday, wanting in. He escaped from the barnyard and nibbled on my rosebushes, until Emma went out and gave him heck and he went back to his barnyard buddies. Grrr....Earnest!|
I really enjoy the animals and all of the personalities they have. I even enjoy some of Earnests' antics, unless it has anything to do with my garden.
