Sometimes it is good to be doing nearly nothing

Sometimes goats are worth having around just for entertainment value -today I was trying to get pictures of birds (something I seem incapable of accomplishing). Had camera ready when Iona, daughter of Violet, decided she needed an all around the tree trunk body rub.






She is normally skittish around people but was quite intent on her tree experience . Iona never looked directly at me or the camera.

















You could almost hear her say "ahhhhhh" - what's next?!
I had a little time and a camera on my hands today on Buhlaland - and Iona had a good body rub.

Love your new header! That is a beautiful flower. And yes, some days are meant to just soak up, enjoy, breathe calmly and think! Or maybe not to think, but realize that right now, today, things are fine, maybe more than fine, and God IS good.Iona seemed to embrace a similar mind set today!

That is so sweet, Linda Sue! I would like to be able to scratch like that sometimes too! LOL

I always love seeing photos of your goats. I have not made the step to getting any yet...there is so much to do to get ready...but would love to get some! I may have to come asking for your sound advice when I finally get to getting some. blessings,Kathleen
