Daily Farm Photo 6/24/06: Figuring Out How Animals Think


Okay, this I understand. It's the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence thing.



It's this I don't get.

This is her bowl of treats, in her pen, and she knows perfectly well she could just walk right around that panel to reach it.



Oh, I see. It's a llama thing.

  2. I've really enjoyed your pictures and stories that go along with them. I live in a rural area, with a sheep pasture right on the other side of our back yard. I've seen so many babies and have adored each of them. I came here from San Diego, ready for a more serene life. I've never looked back. Your farm life sounds wonderful! Thank you for the blessings this morning.

  3. This is a great blog. I'm so glad I came across it. I grew up on a sheep, dairy, pig, cash crops farm. We had every animal imaginable. Chickens, ducks, geese, horses (my favorite) and more. I love the llama photos too.

    My job on the farm was taking care of our 50+ head of sheep and training my border collie on them too for competition.

    Stop by my Border Collie blog sometime: http://petchronicles.blogspot.com

    I'm hoping to get some pictures of my old dogs to post on there real soon.

    Take care! I look forward to revisiting!

  7. I just love you Blogg! I found it by looking at the "updated blogg "section and thought. WOW someone like me , lets take a look. Although I have not done as well on my blogg and at 56 I think the life style changes were more of a shock, but, hee hee hee, after a year and a half, I am still struggling along and stepping in "cow pies".

  8. Susan,
    I check in just about every day and finally talked my roomie into explaining "blogging" to me, (I was raised in the 80's and we used an abacus!)so I could tell you how much I enjoy your site. Thank you from the bottom of my techno-nerd heart!

  10. You do know I'm expecting at least one of the llamas to be named after me...right?

  11. Why is it that I tend to see t-shirts everywhere? I hardly ever wear any but plain ones any more, due to the ridiculousness issues which arise with age. But I can't get the Uncle Dan one ("I could have slept in the shed") out of my head, and now I'm seeing "It's a Llama thing" shirts, too.

    BTW,I think it would be very appropriate to name the llamas "Lindy: and "Jeff". We might even stop nagging you-though I doubt if the chickenz ever will. Can't speak for them, of course. Heh, heh.
