I'm planning my escape out of my pasture and paddock so that I can go up to the house to eat lots of the tasty things I've heard about up there!
The flowers should be tasty but there are also little vegs growing and I want some! Zucchini, tomatoes, potatoes, corn, cucumber and beans and then herbs like parsley, basil, mints and chives.
Those chickum ladies are laying an egg every other day! No excuse for me not to get some egg! And here are Number and Gimli hanging out together. Number is listening to the neighbor's baby that yells! He is afraid of that baby.
I wonder if these lilies below are as firey tasting as they look! I'm going back to planning my escape from Alcatraz so that I can find out! Goat kisses from Isobelle!

Number is enjoying his time with us here. Our lady is letting his mane get all shaggy but we think he is handsome anyway....maybe if it gets long enough we can chew it for him?
We are here at the farm enjoying a cool and moist summer. I must say that the flies aren't happy with the cooler weather but it's really nice for us. Gimli is hanging around that horse an awful lot, although I do laugh now because at feeding time Number likes to cavort around in the stall and squeal at Gimli. hee hee

Our lady told us that she found an egg-present from the chickens yesterday! She said she heard a great kerfuffle in the chicken coop/pen and went out to see what was happening....it was an EGG happening! We goats heard all that cackling too...how interesting! I wonder if I'd cackle if I laid an egg? She said it was yummy.

That horse Number gets peppermints every evening. I WANTED ONE! Our lady said that she didn't think I'd like them but I begged and begged so she said, "OK". This is my give-me-a-peppermint face.

Dr. Margaret's little Boston Terrier, Terrell was put to sleep Saturday due to severe Cushing's Disease complications. He was a great little dog with a ton of heart and courage and was just silly enough to be absolutely adorable. Our lady told us that he was a terrific snuggler and she enjoyed taking care of him when Dr. Margaret had to go away for a few days. Sleep well, Terrell.
