Today's Animal Encounters

I had another pre-closing inspection today at the house I sold. I visited with the neighbors who have a donkey and a goat. I slipped behind the fence to photograph them up close. We will be fast friends before long. The goat is somewhat shy. The owner was pulling all of the flower stems from her rhubarb as they are inedible. She has a wonderful garden and grows everything she and her husband eat in the summer. I want to be their neighbor too.

Todays client had 13 poults from her heritage turkeys.

Forgot my camera and the stupid cell phone was out of storage space. Ughhhhh. Poults are adorable.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

What a sweet picture.
Goats are truly lovely. They have great characters, are very smart and are very endearing :)

OMG. That's looks like Donkey from Shrek! I can almost hear Eddie Murphy's voice. Lol. So adorable, honestly. What I want to know is where are they all relocating to. Some new place with lots of land nearby? Lucky ducks!

It's as though the goat is saying, "See? I am too taller than you."
