You may remember me telling you last week that Annie-Oakley got skunked.
Well, one week later it has happened again...
only, this time it was only Oakley.
For some reason, yesterday morning Oakley left Annie at home and went on a mission.
I think he decided that skunk hunting was a man's job.
After all, a sweet little girl should't come home smelling so rank!
Annie and Sam stayed with me during morning chores,
while Oakley was off on his hunting trip.
Upon our arrival at home, the tell-tale acrid odor hit all of our nostrils.
Oakley: "Mommmmm....I am soooooo sorry!"
Sam: "Dude, you stink."
Into the shower went Oakley and Mom...and the skunk kit.
Oakley hates baths...more that he hates the stench of skunk.
If only he would remember that when he sees that white stripe.
Once bathed, he contentedly settled in for a nap...
a good morning's hunt complete.
By noon yesterday the rain was dry and the sun's emergence made everything sparkle
with color again.
Everything is so amazingly lush for August.
I could tell the temperature was around 82...
it measured that on Sammy's tongue-length heat index.
I took a little time to visit the Nigerian Dwarf Goats while I was doing afternoon chores.
This is Audrey.
Audrey is, I think, one of our more striking goats.
Although usually quite shy,
she doesn't seem to mind showing off her colors for the camera.
Don't you just love that beard?
If a gal has to have a beard,
what's better than to have a lovely striped beard!
