We're in for several days of stormy weather. But that doesn't stop the LGDs from doing their duty, that being guarding their charges from 4 legged critters that might want to dine at the American Way Cafe. A tree doesn't provide that much shelter from the storm, but I guess it'll have to do. (BTW, for those unfamiliar with LGDs, that stands for Livestock Guardian Dog. And yes, even though she seems to be sound asleep she's still on duty. Any disturbance in the force would bring her to her feet ready to do battle.)
And where, you might ask, are the goats that this faithful dog is guarding? Hiding in the barn of course!
|"Ewww, it's wet. We don't do wet."|
Might I make a suggestion to the dog? Perhaps it would be better to sleep in the barn with the goats where it's dry. Just sayin'.

We originally got Kirby, the mini donkey (aka Barack), as a pasture mate for Talon, the horse. But the goats adopted him as their Goat God. So the next plan was to get everyone to be friends. Until today every time Talon would see the goats in his pasture he'd chase them back to the barn. We went on a short overnight trip yesterday and when we came back today Talon was on the goat's side of the fence. I really have no idea how he got in there, but there they were, all grazing peacefully together. Maybe I just should have left them alone to work it out but I was always afraid he'd run over them. So here's to new friends and pasture mates.Please leave a comment below. I love hearing from you.
