Yesterday was another day for firsts...
and this time the donkeys did not lose their minds.
Yesterday, for the first time, the sheep went out to the front pasture with the pigs.
Perhaps it was because the donkeys were almost comatose,
after spending the night time out in the pasture with the horses...
or perhaps it is just because the sheep are no way as scary looking as the pigs.
Whatever the reason, the donkeys took this scene in their stride....
The sheep thoroughly enjoyed their added freedom,
but still came running
when they saw me out in the pasture picking up manure.
I don't delude myself into thinking that they are just happy to see me...
I know they are just hoping for Ritz crackers!
It was fun interacting with them in their new surroundings.
I can't help but believe that enlarging their world is as good for their mental health
as it is for their physical health.
After all, a little adventure helps to make life more fun!
" Good morning, Fred and Ethel!"
My farm buddy, Tyler is back home with his Mommy and Daddy again.
We had a wonderful time together yesterday...so many funny stories that I could tell you.
Perhaps the funniest is how he describes what he saw when we first opened up the chicken
house in the morning.
As he tells the story...
"The king chicken (rooster) jumped on top of the other chicken (hen)
[as Tyler does a little hopping up and down motion]
and squeezed and squeezed until the other chicken pooped himself!"
How he acts this out is even funnier than what he says.
And all of us with chickens know exactly what was happening in this scene.
