It's kite-flying weather!
Outside my window the winds are whistling through the evergreen trees.
The snow is melted... leaving the earth saturated and muddy.
It's during conditions like these that we often lose trees...
blowing over with no solid ground to hold onto their roots.
In yesterday's comments, a question was raised about our goats and why they don't make
as many appearances on the blog as the other animals.
I don't have a great answer for you.
I do, however, spend more time in their pasture during summer weather
when the ground is dry.
On dry, sunny days I often sit in the grass and just watch them and the chickens.
But in the winter? Not so much.
They are visited just as often as the rest of the animals each day.
And they get their share of Ritz crackers each day as well.
Perhaps not quite as many crackers as our two starving pigs consume,
but I suppose that is because the goats are not shameless beggars
like the pigs.
I tried videoing with one hand while giving treats with the other
yesterday while I was out doing afternoon chores.
Here is the result of that...
I also snapped a better picture of my blind sheep's eyes.
They are not really blind...they just look as if they have no eyes.
Their wool is so very thick right now...
but I assure you... as you can see...they have adequate visibility.
