DH has been keeping me busy knocking things off the to-do list for the last few days, so nothing to report on the riding front. One of the last things he wanted done this weekend was to update some fencing in a lot we weren't using so the goats could keep the weeds knocked down. This lot is adjacent to both my arena (that should be fun), and the dry lot. After we finished, we let them out so the horses could come meet them.
These are the second round of photos -- the first 50 or so I took would have been AMAZING. I kept clicking the shutter and thinking "gosh I can't wait to see these, they're going to be TERRIFIC." And they would have been..... if I had a memory card in the camera.....
Cinna kept coming up to me and touching my shoulder -- "Mom, do you see that??"
The goats seemed equally as interested in what was going on on the horse side of the fence.
After everyone got a good look at each other, the horses went back out to the pasture, and we took the rest of the afternoon off!
Maybe this makes me a bad horse parent but horses looking at something new makes for great photos! I used to take my horse by the llama pen (they intrigued him a great deal) to get fancy arch-necked ears forward pics hahaReplyDelete
Haha I brought my camera out precisely because I knew there would be photo ops! 😋Delete
Their faces are too cute!ReplyDelete
They were transfixed!Delete
I love their faces!ReplyDelete
So much adorable-ness hahaDelete
And they'll be best friends before you know it (hopefully)ReplyDelete
They don't need to be best friends, just need to not spook at them 😂Delete
DANGER. SOMETHING HAS CHANGED. MAHM LOOK!ReplyDelete
I was in the corner closest to the goats and when they started getting close to me Cinna came barreling back over to "save" me, I about died laughing 😂Delete
The real danger is how quickly goats will eat horse tails (just a friendly warning).ReplyDelete
I love how Cinna was checking with you. :)
They won't be turned out together ever, and they will only be in adjacent pastures when supervised, so hopefully losing tails is not in our future!Delete
But yes, she was so funny about how she reacted to both the goats and my reaction to the goats. Such a goober.
Omg those expressions !!!ReplyDelete
They were even better the first time around, sans memory card #stillkickingmyself24hourslater haha but yeah, it was priceless!Delete
Such adorable photos-it's good to get them used to other critters so your husband was really smart to get the goats....ReplyDelete
Yeah because he totally got them just to help me desensitize the horses 😋😎 lolDelete
They're all like, "Whoa. Those are some weird ponies."ReplyDelete
Cinna was especially concerned haha. The boys at least have probably seen minis, which are about the same size? Hysterical either way!Delete
