My camera is back from Canon and after a few days of just looking at it, afraid it was still a lemon, I took it with me when I went down to feed this morning. The animals were eager to pose for me after a few weeks of being photographically ignored.
The first animal I always see on my walk down to the farm is this.....
Isn't she cute? I hope she never becomes hamburger.
Her pasture mate is suspiciously missing.
Where are you Reno?
It is best not to get attached to anything in this pasture. When my son was little we used to walk down and feed grass to a cow named Julie. One day when he was coming home from a day at kindergarten the bus stopped in front of Julie's pasture....just in time for my animal loving son to see the butcher cut off her head with a chainsaw.
He didn't touch meat for 10 years. 10 years we ordered deluxe cheeseburgers with no meat.
Here is Filbert. I have lots of pictures of Filbert. He will just stand somewhere looking nonchalant like he doesn't know I have the camera. But I know he knows.
Next is Riot.
Then the whole famn damily.
He loves to be dirty.
He had so much fun today running, bucking, and jumping with the horses next door. I will never worry about his creaky joints again. His secret is out. He has wonderful range of motion....when he wants to. I lunged him and he tossed his head and bucked. It was so much fun to see such a little guy tear up some turf.
So the jury is still out on this camera. They replaced the lens...again. There was a note inside telling me to use Duracell Ultra batteries....right next to the Duracell Ultra batteries I was using.
But I shall keep an open mind. Besides I hate it when I don't have a camera.
