All was quiet these past two days and Sunday evening filled the farm with peace and serenity, making it a perfect weekend (besides the scary storms!). I went about my usual routine of cleaning and taking care of the animals. The corn yard was quiet. I am thinking Beauty might have given birth as she didn't show up for dinner with her son Browntail...they always feed together. On the way back to the barn with both horses in hand, I saw most of Brownie's 'brood' lying down together near the thicket, all chewing their cud...now that I haven't seen before! Usually the girls will take a breather, not the boys, who are most distrustful. I couldn't get close enough without disturbing them which was disappointing. Unfortunately I fell off my narrow perch on the wheel cover of the horse trailer while trying to avoid touching a large red wasp and while keeping my balance! Thankfully no humans were around to laugh at me. I loudly voiced my disappointment which caused the deer to raise up to see what had just happened. Then my reward came. I was blessed to be able to watch Brownie's bathing beauties!
(ooops, sorry for omitting the word 'could' in LB's photo).
