Yesterday the weather was mild enough to shut the horses out of their run-in and allow all the kids and their mothers out together. Of course, there was much jostling amongst the adults to determine who was going to be in charge, but the kids seemed to think it was rather fun once they got past the initial shock.
Twinkie and Oreo hanging out. (Yes, Oreo noticed that I had the camera out.. he really doesn’t seem to like the flashing light.)
Sarah says, “Whatcha doin’? Got any treats?”
Moses, on the other hand, just mosied around, strutting his stuff. He even went “head-to-head” with our momma Nubian doe, DJ, which was rather humorous to watch. Gutsy little guy! Unfortunately, none of the shots I took of that came out – my camera just can’t handle motion in that lighting.
Moses says, “Yeah. Yeah, I know. I’m hot stuff.”
Then, I brought in… a monster. Or so you would have thought, from the kids’ reactions:
Sarah: “What… is it?”
Annabelle: “I don’t know.”
So, who was it? Well, in close quarters she’s a bit camera-shy… but I was able to get this decent shot of her out in the bucks’ pasture:
It was our lovely lady Spice, who was delighted to be able to spend some free time with the new kids.
