Adorable Animals

How graceful this lead goat is!
This cute little goat is a bit shy of people and does not want to show himself until he smells food!
 Miniature Horse peacefully grazing away...
Farm animals and pets are so adorable and lovable creatures.
Awww!! One-week-old baby goat. 
Whooo are you looking at?

See...this cute little kitty looks like it's about to Eat the photographer alive! :)

Hello, my lovely people! I am so sorry that I have been gone so long, but so glad that all went well with my check-ups (Big sigh of relief!).
So I'm back and ready to go! I've missed you all so much and can't wait to catch up with everyone.

Hope you have a lovely weekend (and I wish everyone that celebrates a Happy and Safe Memorial Day Weekend!).

Got any big plans for the holiday?

Have a great one, and here are a few wonderful blogs from around the Blogland. xx

These truly are adorable animals. While I like the miniature horse, there is something about the lead goat in your first photo that I find very appealing. I hope you have a marvelous weekend.

They are adorable. funny, the goat looks taller and leaner than some and the absolutely beautiful horse is so round! Don't you just want to hug all of them- even the cat (carefully!) LOL

Red Nomad OZ said...

When I'm not travelling I'm just a little Aussie farmgirl!! So I'm glad to look at photos of those cute goats, but not so glad to see them breaking the fence down to get through to our paddock from up the road!!!

Have a great weekend!!

Lisa Gordon said...

Thank you for the link, Betty.

These little (and big!) sweeties are just beautiful. The fourth photograph here is absolutely gorgeous.

We will be having an unseasonably cold Memorial Day weekend, but I have a lot of things to get done inside, so that when the weather gets better, I can be outside!! :-)

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Riot Kitty said...

Welcome back Betty, and glad all is well with you. The animal pics are just fab! I had a lucky moment seeing a cat sunning himself yesterday, will blog it later today.

Cute critters!

Kalantikan said...

Yes farm animals and pets are all cute and lovable. We also have them, but we only have a horse when we were still young. When my father was already old he sold it, now my father died but we always love horses.

Que cada día de tu vida sea más bello que el anterior
y que nunca te falte la ilusión de un nuevo amanecer.

Feliz despertar a este domingo vestido de cielo, calzado
de simpatía, mientras es peinado con hilos de madreselvas...

Un breve abrazo,
adueñado del sentimiento.

Atte.

Ahhhh!
All are really cute shots but that horse shot with the light and bubbly bokeh is stunning!
Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend and we're almost upon another weekend already. :)

La Gata Coqueta said...



Esta mañana después de levantarme y cuando ya me disponía a salir a la calle, me asaltó la indecisión, de no saber que ponerme...

Y de pronto el niño que aún llevamos dentro me sugirió que me vistiera de felicidad, ya que así cuando me encontrara con los amigos la podría compartir...

No sé si ha sido una idea afortunada o no, pero el hecho es que aquí estoy esperando que la aceptes a través del silencio de las palabras, que son el portavoz de mis sentimientos...


Quisiera que mañana al despertar, el alba te pintará un paisaje lleno de caléndulas de mi parte para ti!!


Un abrazo de despida bajo la alameda de los ruiseñores...


Atte.
