A Sunny Day...Finally

I looked out the window a bit ago and saw a great picture in the making. Gus was quietly eating hay, while Arlene the goat sat nearby watching him. I've noticed that she has a special relationship with him. I went to put hay out for them all earlier today, and Gus threw a fit because it wasn't time for his grain. After he calmed down, Arlene ran up to him, tilted her head to look at him, and maa'ed softly. She was clearly trying to communicate with him. She's usually near him out in the pasture, while Emma, our other goat, really doesn't pay any attention to him.

At any rate, I went out to take the picture, but of course my presence changes things. Below you can seen Arlene starting to stand up, and then.... turns into this.

And then this. I must look like a walking grain bin. At least he's warm and dry now, after all the rain of the last few days. You'll notice the bin on its side. He kicked it over, of course. There's no reason for an empty hay bin to be upright.

Everyone is enjoying the sun today, though it's still only in the high 40's.

I feel very lucky to be living in the Southeast today, and so sorry for all the people in the Northeast whose holiday travel has been disrupted by the snow. Here's wishing all the travellers a safe trip!
