Goats


“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.”  ~Henry Beston

We had a good summer at Morning Bray Farm.

The herd loves their new farrier. Pedicures long ago stopped being an inconvenience for Ellsworth:

Grace did extremely well with her first pedicures this summer:

We had the occasional peeping Moo:

We enjoyed many beautiful early mornings:

…and the summer storms fondly remembered from my youth:

Pineapple weed

I had the gardens I’ve always dreamed of:

And, now…

“It is a delightful pastime to sit in the pleasant sunshine of autumn, and gazing from this little spot of free earth over such a landscape, let the imagination luxuriate amid the thrilling associations of the scene!” ~H.T. Tuckerman, San Marino

Autumn

We hope all is well in your world. ♥

The Moo is in heaven here. How does it get any better when the world is your very own salad bowl?

She has free range of the entire farm, all the time. She coexists with the dogs. She coexists with the donkeys. She never gets penned up and she keeps her own schedule.

Moo1

She does insist, however, on being completely involved with all weeding and trimming projects. Seriously. You’d better believe she’s going to come running and screaming! when she sees the blue weed bucket.

Moo2

Some projects she prefers to tackle on her own. For example, she loves trimming the apple trees.

Moo4

She’s our good goat girl. ♥

We’ve been here for six weeks and it has felt like home since day one.

First day

We now have a porch goat:

Rain or shine, the gardens are lovely:

The herd has the farm’s best view:

Our snail races are exciting:

Mornings are my favorite:
