The Day we fed our leaf Bouquet to Goats. . .

It started out as a fun, autumn themed photoshoot; but along the way we had crazy hair thanks to the wind, goats eyeing our handpicked maple leaves, threw armfuls of leaves up into the air and just generally had a good time. ;)
 {But then again, we always have a good time out on our friends' hobby farm...;)}

Bouquet of Autumn Leaves

It was windy . . . but delightfully so. ;)

Love these lil' girls... :)

Gotta love how only a few hairs decided to go with the wind...little rebels!

And then- having made the most of our whimsical bouquet . . .

  . . .  we happened to wander over near the field where the goats were busy de-leafing a fallen tree branch . . .

When suddenly- one looks up from his dry, crunchy meal, and espies tender, fresh leaves, tantalizingly near-

I wouldn't consider myself a goat expert, but I imagine what they felt at that moment must have been similar to the elation we would feel on coming upon a piece of chocolate cake after just resigning ourselves to eating stale crackers . . . ;)

Needless to say, they got a lil' excited-  and the fallen branch was immediately forgotten. 

I'd like to be able to say that the goats were unselfish and each one got to partake of this delicacy, but I'm afraid that wouldn't be the truth . . . a bit of headbutting occurred as a result. ;D

It was fun. :D

Through His Grace,
