It’s spring shearing season again, my friends.Â And that means a trip out to visit the goats, alpacas, and other critters at our friends’ fiber farm.Â I don’t have any shearing photos to share with you this time.Â (You can see pics from my last shearing adventure here and here.)Â We were all business, with a good dose of giggles thrown in for good measure.Â But that doesn’t mean I didn’t get any photos while I was there.Â Enjoy!
Here is Tom Turkey, getting his flirt on.
The alpaca welcoming committee was lined up for introductions.Â These guys are super curious and friendly.
“Can I get a smooch?”Â All about the kisses, this guy.
A few of our goat friends gathered around for a closer look.Â They weren’t quite sure whether I was standing there to pet them or to trick one of them into getting a hair cut.Â (Petting was appreciated, hair cuts were not.)Â At the time, I was just there for pets.Â Once they figured that out, my legs became goat scratching posts – they love to rub their foreheads on any available surface.
Back at home, the apple trees have decided it’s warm enough for blossoms.
Do you think we’re going to have a few apples this year?
