Bucket Head


I thought Nutmeg was just playing with this bucket, then I realized it was stuck on her head and she was in real trouble. It was a very warm day yesterday so it was a good thing I spotted her and rescued her. The bucket must have fallen off the porch railing down into the goat yard. It was empty, yet it’s appealing, lingering scent of food must have drawn her to jam her entire head inside of it looking for perhaps a crumb at the bottom.

I’ll have to be careful not to put buckets on the porch railing anymore.

And Nutmeg, otherwise known as Rotunda, might reconsider her piggish ways.

Though probably she won’t. I’d better keep a better eye on the bucket.

    Nutmeg will have you know that it’s “Miss Rotunda” to you, thank you. hahaha
    Isn’t it a wonder, the mischief that animals (both 2 and 4 legged) can get themselves into?
    I know that you are enjoying the warm sunny weather. Soon you will be putting in your garden.

    Well, at least she didn’t go running around full blast into things!! Inquisitive animals! If there’s trouble, they’ll find it. Same with horses!

    Yes we are Amber and I am enjoying every minute of it!!

    So glad you spotted her Suzanne! Nellie, one of our nannies, will knock the water bucket over, put her head in it and butt the barn wall over and over and over with the thing on her head. She’s so silly. It’s big enough she can get her head out, she’s just stubborn!

    As if Suzanne didn’t have enough to do! Silly Nutmeg!

    Hello! I just realized, from the Maxwell House can, how tiny she is!
    Glad she is no longer a bucket head.

  12. Nancy in Iowa says:

    Rotunda is right! But her coat is beautiful, and looks much longer than in her kidhood photos!

    That scares me, I am glad she is safe. You have such a wonderful farm don’t need any problems. :sun: :sun: :sun: :sun:
