Walking the Line

Feb
21


You can see by the tracks in the snow (which is finally melting, yay!) how rarely the animals stray off their path. They have a path to the goat house, a path to their feeding area, and a path to the tree where the bird feeders hang. Everybody likes to hang out under that tree and pick up seeds that fall out of the feeders. But–stay on the path! No straying off the path! Even the chickens and cats use the path.

    It is so funny to me – seeing goats and chickens and a donkey following the path together!!! :happyfeet:

    Do you think they may be singing “follow the yellow brick road”?

    That is a great picture. Love how all the animals big and small all lined up on the path. It will be intresting to see how they act once the snow melts. lol.

    Oh oh …there’s always one that has to be different! That’s just so cute. My male donkey has to stay on his own trails but our little female who is in another pasture…she walks all over the place. Guess she’s a free spirit! :hungry2:

    Cute picture. I’m with Diane here. Is this just to avoid walking in the snow? They don’t do this year round do they? Do the dogs use the path? And do you find yourself following along, instead of cutting through the snow? Fascinating.

    Here at our farm, we call it the “Yellow Brick Road”, cause the animals always follow it…deer paths, too!

    Precious! This is truly a lesson in patience. You caught it especially at the stalemate at the head of the line.
    Here’s praying you get more sunshine. :sun:

    Love it! My husband even looked at it as he walked by and said, that’s a cool photo with a big smile on his face and that was before he had coffee! You’re blog just does that to people!! :)

    And I’m always sticking little notes in here but one of my Easter Eggers is laying blue eggs finally and I have a date Monday evening with a neighbor to buy a few more that are already laying. :woof:

    That picture is such a hoot! If you had tried to pose these animals it wouldn’t have happened in a hundred years! But to catch them all walking together in the same direction…priceless! Love it!

    This reminds me of the string we used to have, but snow wasn’t involved. We had an old cow dog who adopted a little lamb, who took up with a motherless chick, who was followed by a cat. Everywhere.

    You were lucky to catch this cute moment. You should enter this photo in a contest, a real winner! JUST LIKE YOU! Have a great day!

    Oh my gosh! That is the funniest thing! Do they patiently wait their turn or can they get a little nudgy?

    Animals follow the earth’s ley lines, so that’s what they’re doing. It always amazes me, and this picture certainly puts a smile on my face.

    I think this is my favorite photograph of all time! Almost like a storybook tale. Or,
    the walk to Noah’s ark?’

    THank you for the smile!

    That’s funny! We humans tend to do the same thing, stick with the tried and true, the familiar. Food for thought- a well worn path can quickly become a rut!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
