I've been in and out several times today. We are waiting for some bad storms to be moving in later today. The air is heavy and the sky periodically darkens. The wind has been picking up and is now a steady breeze. I've made sure all the right gates are open so that the animals can get under shelter. Usually the cows and sheep just stand around when it rains but the goats race for shelter at the sign of the first raindrop.
As I walked back to gather eggs I noticed a little doe kid all by herself. She was simply watching the world from her special perch at the back of the old barn. Her mother was really only about twelve feet away but she looked like such an independent little lady.
