Home Is A Good Place To Be!

It seems our beautiful sunny weather has come to a temporary end.
With rains predicted today and tomorrow,
I thought it best to move Gracie and her girls back from the bee yard to their own yard,
where they would have shelter from the rain.
(Not that they are ever opposed to standing out in the rain!)

They have been just a little out of sorts since their move to the bee yard.
Every time the gator drives by them they come running to the gate.

And if they are not actively eating, they are lying by the gate...
giving me the idea that they really want to go "home!"

So, yesterday, with Ritz crackers in hand,
I led them back to their yard.

Up the driveway...

down the orchard lane...

to Home Sweet Home!
And life was good again.

The pigs were certainly happy to see them coming.
Although the pigs had free run of the sheep yard in their absence,
I think they missed their company.

MaryAnn was smiling from ear to ear.
(Or maybe it was the fact that I had Ritz in my hands.
I did give the pigs their treat as well!)

After the move was complete and the unpacking done,
I headed to the donkey yard,
drug a chair inside with me,
and had a seat.

It wasn't long before I had a cat in my lap...

and very soon after that, one by one, two donkey heads there as well.

"There's nothing like donkey breath to ruin a perfectly good nap!" says Moll.

You would not believe how sweet and gentle these two big-eared girls are.

I love, love, love spending quiet time with them.

And I can tell by how they drape themselves all over me that they love it as well.

I would love to pull a chair into the dry lot with the horses...

but I think that our naughty little Ollie might make the visit less than peaceful.
