These darlings were on the left of me as I raked hay. I got out and shot about 50 reference photos so that I can paint some goats! They reminded me of the giraffes in Africa, they just kept looking at me and making me wonder what they were thinking.
I've enjoyed working the hay this year. I've told a lot of people and events "no" this summer so I could tell Greg "yes" if he needed me. Not only do I want him to see in my choices that he comes first, but I also know that our teamwork builds financial success and comforts for the both of us. I still get to play a lot - like on my right was a pen of dairy cows. I kept getting out and taking their picture too. They are very curious creatures and eventually walked right up and snorted on my camera to see what it was. I love how they collectively, walked closer and closer, only brave because they had the mob mentality. Like civil war soldiers who walked shoulder to shoulder to face their enemy. Except these guys weren't scared of me AT ALL.They just had to see what I had in my hands. I'll give you 3 guesses about what I'll be sketching next. I got my hay raked before it was dry but I had a little fun with the animals too.
I wanted to show you the nose on my camera but blogspot says I can't download anymore. Just picture two wet, pink nostrils with slobber all around and you will get the idea. I was slimed in the end.
Farm life is a hoot.
