We presented the Boyz and Gracie with a shiny, new Jolly mega ball over the weekend.

For some, there was great interest in the new toy:

Ellsworth was more interested in his lunch than he was in the ball:

Initially, Patrick was too:

Because they were spooked by the green monster, most everyone headed out of the corral. Bernard’s curiosity had him by the ears though.

He stood as close as he could to the monster while standing as far away as possible:

He approached it from every possible angle:

And wherever the wind blew the monster, he followed it:

In the end, we moved the green monster out to the pasture. It was then that Bernard finally summoned up the courage to touch it.

We figure it’s just a matter of time before Bernard finds something entertaining to do with it. ♥
