Walking the Line


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.

    That is just too cute! :cowsleep:

  2. Nancy in Iowa says:

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

  3. Blessings says:

    Do you think they may be singing “follow the yellow brick road”?
    As the GREAT Suzanne will have cookies!

  4. MissWiniW says:

    Aww! That’s really cute ^_^

    The animals look like the Brementown Musicians.

  7. Cynthia Stinson says:

    Looks like Noahs Ark to me, just need the boat.

  8. Carmen Smith says:

    How cute, looks like they are playing follow the leader:)

  9. CindyP says:

    Oh my! That is cute! :sun:

    Looks like one-way traffic and the first little goat is holding up the flow :sheep:
    I absolutely love this picture 🙂
    Happy Sunday to you and the animals, Suzanne. I hope you have sunshine! :sun:

  11. Diane says:

    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.

  12. Chic says:

    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:

  13. Kim Gibson says:

    I have put your blog first on my list to read… it just plain makes me smile each day!

  14. Julia says:

    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.

  15. Leah says:

    How cute is that? They dont want to get cold “feet”!

  16. Valerie says:

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

  17. rain says:

    :sheep: LOVE this picture!! it is so true -they do follow the same path-but this shows it so well!! :happyflower:

  18. NorthCountryGirl says:

    “We’re off to see the Wizard…” They are so cute.

  19. NorthCountryGIrl says:

    They are just too cute.

  20. mrnglry says:

    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:

  22. Lisa in California says:

    That is hysterical!! That must be where the phrase “creatures of habit” comes from.

  23. nursemary says:

    Cracking up! There’s one in every crowd.

  24. Angela says:

    Hey Suzanne!

    I showed this picture to my 5 yr old boy. He said “Follow the Leader”! lol He also said “It’s school”! Funny! :snoopy: :snoopy: :snoopy: :snoopy:

    Angela :wave:

  25. Michele Messier says:

    How cute is that, they look so obedient! :smilerabbit: :smilerabbit: :smilerabbit: :smilerabbit: :smilerabbit:

  26. Susan Knotts says:

    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!

  27. Sarah says:

    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.

  28. Laurie in Wisconsin says:

    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!

  29. Cheryl says:

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

    The line must be drawn here! /Patrick Stewart


    (Who am I kidding? The geek never ends.)

  31. Miss Becky says:

    Suzanne, I wanna trade lives and live where you live… :heart:

  32. Shirley Corwin says:

    What a great photo! Now I won’t feel so frustrated when standing in line at Walmart! Seems, all God’s creatures have to stand in line!!!

  33. Susan from Missouri says:

    LOVE IT! The best picture! :snoopy:

  34. Thunja says:

  38. Sheila Bergeron says:

    Looks like you got all you’re little animals in a row–very orgnized lady. :wave:

  39. ScreamingSardine says:

    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.

  40. SusanAZ says:

    How cute :heart: So cute to see that they are all friends :hug:

  41. Sarah says:

    They remind me of that story, “The Brementown Musicians”… How cute!

  42. Laurie Fix says:

    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!


  43. Crissy says:

    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!

  44. Julia Schreuder says:

    always a joy to see your farm friendly photos!! I love this one….it is my newest screen saver!! Thank you for sharing, Jules =D
