    1. Bill-- Glad you liked the photos. I was particularly fond of the pig and goats as well. Not sure about the turkey. He's in an enclosure with two females, so it may be a plan to make more turkeys!

  3. Wonderful selection. I am really partial to goats and they got a big "aww" out of me.

    1. Patti-- Glad you liked these. I really like those kids too. We just got back from a walk and they were with their mom, feeding. One of them was wagging his tail non-stop!

  6. Hi Robin, lovely photos! The colours in the turkey's face are wonderful. The pig and goats resting together is adorable.
    Enjoy the rest of the week.

  8. What interesting sights you see on your walks. I really loved all of the photographs. The very definition of spring and its promises.

    1. NCmountainwoman-- We do see some interesting sights here. Today we saw two young cows butting heads. It was pretty cute! Spring is taking its own sweet time getting here.

  9. Such a wonderful series of critter images! And that's an interesting pig. I had never seen a hairy pig before, so I looked it up. I guess it's a KuneKune?
    The kids made me laugh, because I just learned about goat yoga from an article in this morning's local newspaper. Goat yoga is a thing and it's come to a town nearby. Photos showed the kids standing on the "yogis" as they practiced. Popular classes and the proceeds support local charities.
    The turkey is amazing! Slightly unreal. I'm so accustomed to seeing wild turkeys that this guy seems more exotic.
    Gosh, even with all the grey days, you are able to find a feast of color.

    1. CCorax-- How did I miss the obvious fact that that pig is hairy? We've been seeing it for such a long time, it just didn't even register. Thank you so much for pointing it out. I saw a link to the goat yoga, but didn't watch it. Maybe I will now! That turkey definitely struts around all the time with his feathers open. Today we saw him, and he made a very nice turkey sound. We responded with a hearty hello. If we didn't look around for color everyday, we'd be as cave-dark as the overcast skies. Really glad you liked these photos.
