Sun Sponges

Animals are as affected by weather as people.  Days of rain and wind had made the girls cranky and cantankerous.  While not raining the day before, the sun played hide and seek in the clouds and there was a chill wind blowing.  Yesterday was warm, start to finish.  The last thing I do before leaving the barn is open the gate to the big pen for the girls.  Turning, I saw all five had found a spot to lie or stand to soak up the sunshine, eyes half shut and drowsing.  Cindy and Esther were around the corner next to the wall, while Inga, Sheila and Tessie hung out in front, happy that the gate to the play yard was shut.  That, to them, meant no rain.  (In California now, of course, the sequel to that statement is always, "But we need it.")

For all of us, it was a good day.

The sun looks good, the Girls look content, and the grass looks a goat's lunch that is!!
