Esmeralda and Little Gnat, Age 11 Days (photos taken 8/31)
© FarmgirlFare.com, the so close and yet so far away foodie farm blog where this amazingly soft little guy is still playing hard to get. He'll stand a few feet away from me, take a couple of curious steps towards my outstretched hand, and then turn away, stopping just long enough for me to give him a quick pat on the rump (which is just what his daddy used to do when he first arrived on the farm). Meanwhile Goofy Gus—who is a lot bigger than Gnat—was so excited to see me this afternoon I swear I thought he was going to leap right up into my arms as he barreled towards me from across the field. That would have been interesting.
