Animal Wednesday on Tuesday

Sunday was a perfect day to drive out to meet my co-worker friend at her place, Serendipity Farm. She just got two baby goats who will remain tiny, Pancho and Lefty!

They follow her around as if she's their mom! Lefty is getting ready to chew on her hair again!

Smile Lefty!

Marcie was showing me how they follow her and as she took off running, Pancho ended up running into his house as Lefty knew enough to run around the outside of it. Pancho was so confused as to where they went! It was hilarious!

I'm the lucky recipient of farm fresh eggs! Marcie is always bringing me a dozen from the girls, who, by the way, lay some beauties!
Thank you girls!

These are their newest hens. I forget what they're called, but they lay blue-green eggs! I can't wait to try them.

And of course, a Rhode Island Red, our state bird!


We were joined by Nellie along our walks. She's a sweet barn kitty who lives a great life. She used to be feral, but with Marcie's gentle gift towards all living things, she's now a social butterfly.

This is Flyer and Dirty Bob Alan. Flyer is the chestnut one.

And this is Dirty Bob. They're both so sweet!

Marcie is trying to make Flyer keep her head up so I can take her picture.

This was the shot of the day! Bob follows Marcie around like a puppy. It's so endearing! He's literally hugging her here ♥

Finally, we went to see Marcie's retreat at the edge of her property. It's a sweet little pond teeming with life! Her husband built a small deck on the water's edge where she can do her yoga and sit in silence.
Ahhhhh. Nice.
It was a delightful visit. A nice balm for my weary soul.
Thank you Marcie! 

Happy Animal Wednesday, my friends!

    Sick sick here.....but at 9.15 I will go to the vet with Sjimmie. And no time to be ill :(
    You take care dear! Thinking about you every day ;)

  10. I love the feathers on those new hens that lay the blue-green eggs! Maybe I can paint them. They are too beautiful not to paint.

  11. I did a very simple and silly painting of the new hens. I'll tell you when I post them. :)

  12. What a wonderful farm and retreat! Looks like you all had a great day that made for a good AW post.


  14. I love the pictures of the farm animals. The black and white horse looks exactly my mare, Zoey. I have a picture of her on my blog but not a good one. I found your blog by way of another blog and just wanted to tell you that I think that your art is great. Very beautiful. I have become a follower so that I can pop in often.

    Hope to chat again.
