Day at Home with the Animals

Today I was fortunate to have the day off as our school is a voting school
side note: ( well to be honest I was "suppose to be at a professional development class but I honestly came down with laryngitis yesterday due to this pathetic cold I started to get so I dipped into my sick days of which I have more than 100 but a little less than 200 and I stayed home)
BUT I really was grading papers and I took advantage of the beautiful day to sit on my back porch and enjoy the view and animals.

It was also a nice day for the animals to hang out outside and play.

For example Dixie was very busy with her new meat bone and was trying to decide where she should hide it.......usually she decides on the manure pile.

My Nigerian Dwarf wether Briggs was trying to decide on a place to relax............

.............this appears to be his place of choice!

Flat Rocks Lil' Texas, my Nigerian Dwarf Buck, took advantage of being let out to check out the girls and show off how sexy he thinks he is.

I believe his conversation with Abigail, my kat. Shetland ewe was, "Excuse me, but you are just not my type." And if animals talk, I believe Abby told him to take his little Texas butt right back where he came from.

Johnny Reb brought up the gelding conversation again and I just told him the time is very, very close so enjoy your silly self now......actually he is pretty good for being a yearling and for me being a green horn on horses.

I so enjoy being home and hanging out with the animals.
Cherish yesterday. Dream tomorrow. Live today.

Looks like you and your critters had a wonderful, relaxing day.
I am not usually a big fan of goats, but that Nigerian buck is REALLY cute!

I see goats are like kitties....they are nosy and like to climb on stuff!

What a great day and nice view you have from your back porch. Tomorrow I will have to try to take time to sit on the porch, as this weather will not last long!

Sounds like you knew exactly the medicine you needed :)
Dixie looks very proud of her new bone - why do they like the manure pile for a burial ground? Smelly!

So much of the country enjoying beautiful weather - we'll take it!
