"Come on, kids....it's time to eat!"
It's a call that usually makes the goats come running.
No... these gals are smart.
I looked at the sky behind their houses and immediately knew why no one was interested in dinner.
I finished afternoon chores to the rumble of thunder growing closer and closer.
By the time I reached the barn the rain had begun.
I drove the gator home in the pouring rain.
We've had storms almost on a daily basis for the past several days.
None of them have amounted to much.
It gets dark, the wind blows, thunder rumbles, it starts to rain...
and as quick as it began it is finished.
It's been just enough to wet the grass,
but not enough to really water our dry, parched earth...
and certainly not enough to even make a dent in our ever shrinking pond.
What used to be a pond is quickly becoming a puddle.
We need rain... inches and inches of rain.
The weather for the past week (+) has been hot (hovering around 90 degrees)
with an oppressive amount of humidity that makes it feel like its over 100 degrees.
The humidity builds throughout the days until the clouds become saturated...
resulting in our daily thunderstorm.
I'm not a big fan of hot weather....
and even less of a fan of humidity.
Autumn weather will be a welcomed relief...
not only for me, but for these girls as well.
Isn't this sweet face just the cutest?
I love these girls!
They have become so much more friendly this year...
always coming to the fence when I am near.
After yesterday's post, I thought you might like to know that the donkeys
have completely adjusted to seeing the pigs out in the pasture.
Everyone's bowels are back to normal!
