Some days are just prettier than others.

Today was one of those days. Today was a day to be spent outdoors.


Raphael, my favorite goat (and yes, it is possible to have a favorite goat), was enjoying his day in the pasture. In honor of this not-too-hot-not-too-cold day, we did bring him a few leaves from a near-by tree as a special treat. He thanked us by not head-butting. Much appreciated.

The flowers by the pond were in full bloom. We’ve had so much rain this season they should be in full bloom! Heck, they should be blooming all over the place.

And several alpacas decided to act as greeters when we entered the barn. Now really, can a day be bad if two alpacas make it their personal mission to greet you?

Summer can sometimes be sticky hot and miserable. But today was as perfect a summer day as you can order.
