Photos of my sweet Pocahontas are best taken through the goat yard gate.
That’s because once I’m inside the goat yard, most pictures of Pocahontas look like this.
She nuzzles. And cuddles. And nigh swoons upon me.
I love that.
However, sometimes it’s annoying because it’s so difficult to take photos of her when she’s swooning all over me.
If I crouch down to take photos of Clover, Pocahontas likes to rest her head on my shoulder.
But for all her sweetness, she is also a little soldier girl I’ve come to depend on. When Pocahontas is by my side, I can walk through the goat yard without my rooster rake! Mean Rooster won’t come too close to Pocahontas. He’s scared of my little donkey.
If she gets distracted munching grass….and I get too far away from her….and Mean Rooster’s coming, I scream, “POCAHONTAS!” And she saves me.
Morgan does that, too. I’ll be in the house and hear her screaming, “POCAHONTAS!” and I know Mean Rooster’s after her. But that she’ll be okay. Pocahontas will save her.
