I met some animals
Today we went to Eveland Farm’s pumpkin patch. We don’t do the Halloween thing at all but it is fun to get pumpkins and it is nice to visit a farm.
We visited this pumpkin patch earlier this fall when my parents were visiting and I photographed this horse then but it was on the other side of its pasture so I didn’t get a good look at it. Today it came close and I fell in love with the dear old thing...it seems so much like the skin horse from “The Velveteen Rabbit” tattered and torn but somehow completely loveable and huggable.
This poor ol’ billy goat was by himself but we all knew he was there as he was upwind of the whole farm. I could still smell him on us when we got home. Poor billies even the sociable friendly ones aren’t suitable for society.
This whether seemed to have a lot of character? We raised sheep on our farm growing up and sheep – well they have certain sayings about them for a reason but this one seems more goat-like. We had goats too – and those are animals with personality.
I think donkey’s are in the category of so homely they are adorable. I liked this shot in particular.
Finally, K was having a rough day so Dad went with C and I went with K which is why you see K today. I am particularly happy of the shot with her feathers in her hair. Last time we came and they found feathers and put them in her hair and she wouldn’t let me photograph them. Today she didn’t want me to shoot them either but I managed this shot.
