Friday Farm Funny: This little game we play

My precious Edie, the sweetest sheep God ever made.



Every day it's the same routine:
I start the morning feeding chores at the big barn where Daisy and Edie's stall is located...
not because they're that special (which they kinda are) but because it's also adjacent to where the chicken feed is kept.

I give Daisy and Edie a little grain and a nice, tasty block of hay, and then it's on to the chicken coop.



But then I turn around to see they are following me...
abandoning their grain and hay and walking along beside me on the other side of the fence.
Almost as if they want something more from me...



Could it possibly be the sweet corn I have in my bucket which was supposed to be for the chickens? Hmmm?




Try looking at this next picture and NOT imagine that they are saying,
"Oh please, just a little nibble? Puh-leeese?"



And then, like a National Geographic special on sharks- the feeding frenzy begins.



Daisy is always the first to get her head through the fence and her tongue to the scoop...
(Edie is a little slow...)



The corn flies out of the scoop as she licks all she can before
Edie manages to get her head through the fence...

Then Edie mops up what's left...




Ever heard of a "milk moustache"?
This is very similar and it's called "corn lips".




Once the corn is all gone,
they turn and calmly walk back toward the barn;
back to their grain and hay......



*Sigh*
I feel so used....

Happy Good Friday, everyone!!

  13. I don't think there is a farm animal anywhere that doesn't recognize a feed bucket : ) Love these black-faced beauties!

  14. Oh my goodness! And I thought your fuzzy bottom pictures were adorable! LOL I love Edie and Daisy. They are so beautiful. I wonder if I can talk my hubby into us getting some sheep. Hmmm, probably not, since he has already agreed to chicks, ducks, goats, and rabbits. I guess I shouldn't be greedy, huh! I hope you and your hubby have a wonderful Easter. Our kids are coming home for a BBQ. So it will be wild around here. (grin)
