saturday snapshot

A rare playful moment from Lily

I'd been sitting and visiting with Tansy and Fern,
when I turned and found, right at eye-level,
this soft fuzzy nose.
The usually-aloof Lily
had decided to sneak up and surprise me.
:)

I hope your weekend brings surprises
that make you laugh!

We have been having a lot of storms in our area. Take care . Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend Shirley

    1. I hope your summer is going well, Shirley! I'll bet your grandkids will be starting school again soon, and then what will you do with all your time? ;)

    1. Very true. I just said to someone the other day that it's probably impossible to spend much time with the goats without sooner or later laughing out loud.

  5. She's smiling! And it always feels special when a standoffish animal wants to engage in some human activity. I love those moments.

    1. I wouldn't dare! It could set back Lily's interest in human contact for months. But my big wether Betula will actually reach his nose out and gently touch a person's cheek - not something I ever expected in a goat, and especially not in a big rough-and-tumble boyo!
