Guineas En Pointe

To anyone I might have grossed out with yesterday's "poopy" blog,
I apologize!
To the rest of you who shared your own animals' propensity towards coprophagy,
thank you for reassuring me that my animals are not "special!"

Today I will steer clear of the above subject.
Instead I will share a little guinea ballet.

Maestro....please have the orchestra begin...
perhaps a classic ballet...
such as that old favorite...
"Guinea Lake".

We begin the first act with the ensemble...


The Pas De Deux...


featuring the pirouette...


the arabesque...
(ooooh, now wait a second.... maybe this is kick-boxing instead!)


The shoulder sit (one of the grandest lifts in ballet)...


And the climax in the last act...
the double pas de chat!


Please, please hold your applause until the final number is finished...


and our stars disentangle themselves from that last position....


And that, folks, is our show.
Please let your applause be generous.
And thank you for attending our opening performance.
(Daily shows here at the farm are running through the end of the month...
admission is free!)

I have a soft spot for "The Arts" and have enjoyed this performance immensely.

Oh my goodness! We only have male guineas left...you KNOW what happened to all of our females:(. I think the remaining ones are a bit smarter, must have graduated from the Bird Brain Acadamy! I would love to have some white ones though to match our beloved white peacock, Felipe!

Well, they are looking awfully cranky. It reminds me of my geese this time of year. :-)

Oh my, what a performance!!Clap, clap!! This ballet was like non other I have seen. It really had some tense moments during the acts. Did I mention the admission price was great, what a value in this day and age! Hugs!!!

Mentioning the word 'poop' is okay in my world. :) When you have pets or any other animals the subject just seems to pop up every now and then. xox
