Greener Hay

September 10th, 2009 · 12 Comments

Another county fair view.  This goat was stuck.  Really stuck.  She was turning her head every which way to try to get free and then she’d stop and look at us.  I imagine she’s thinking, “I should have been happy with my own hay!”

Stuck Goat County Fair 8-09 005 (Medium)

In the 4H barn the goats were in these wooden pens, all with the same straw bedding and hay to eat.  Almost all of the goats had their heads through the wooden slats reaching into the pen next to them to grab their neighbor’s hay! I guess the hay is greener on the other side of the fence, too!

As for me, I’m pretty happy with the grass right where I am!  How about you?

    Well, I can say I haven’t been letting any grass grow under my feet lately. As for green, I tend to think the grass is greener, but in my heart I know my grass is very green. And needs mowing.

    i love the goat! i hope she got out ok, poor thing.

    i’m trying not to think too much about where the grass is greener right now – i’m just moving forward. that’s what’s important.

    When I was younger, I was a bit like the goats. When they grow up, they’ll figure it out– it doesn’t get any better!! Thanks so much for sharing, Gayle!!

    Actually Gayle, I’m very guilty of always wanting to be somewhere else, maybe Rome.
