Saving something special

As you all know, Dolly is a very sweet and special girl.

Danni and I have mentioned before just how much Dolly loves her bits and pieces of hay in the bottom of the bucket.

You can always tell by the hay bucket who has just been eating since there is a Dolly sized hole the size of her muzzle left behind.

And it just so happens that my very loved goat boys...

Have decided that they like to leave all these lovely bits and pieces behind in their feeder.

So, after many, many attempts of trying to get them to eat the tasty bits, I decided to tell them just how much of a good thing they were missing out on. And after I could tell they had really listened to me...

I then dumped them into a bucket and offered them to sweet Dolly.

Who just couldnt eat them quite quickly enough.

You can see Toni(partially)in the pictures....she was so good about letting Dolly enjoy her special treat. She didnt even try to eat out of the bucket.

And once Dolly got over her initial rush of excitement, she slowed down a bit.

And began to slowly chew every mouthful.

And at one point it began to sprinkle ever so gently out of her mouth.

I think she thought it was a pretty great idea. That whole bucket full of hay bits. And Im so happy that it made her happy.

Could eat no fat,
His wife could eat no lean;
And so,
Betwixt them both,
They licked the platter clean.

Of grassy hay

The goat boys look great. Is Dolly the llama with the heart shaped nose?

CeeCee and Danni, You two are a hoot. I wonder what it is about those little bits that Dolly llama likes so much? :)

I wish i had an animal like her here. All of my aninmals ignore the little bits and leave them to rot at the bottom of their dishes. Sigh.

Awwww. It sure looks like Dolly really enjoyed her special treat.

Look at little G with all those goats babies around him! He looks like such a good little farmer boy. I bet he's a great help with all the critters.

Life looks good on your Fancied Farm. Really, really good. :)
