September is full of practice runs … for fall. One day will be cold and windy. The next will be hot and muggy. Those cold and windy days are actually some of our favourites. They blow the biting flies away and when you have a black coat that is starting to fill in again – like Bella’s – they are lovely and cool. When the sun and the bugs come back she plants herself under one of the shade shelters with what remains of the loose tarp as her fly swatter!
Darby plants herself in the shade by the woods – catching some of the cool air coming down the hillside.
Rosie likes that option too. I looked around after finishing the chores to find everyone – goats included – laying in the shade. Only the day before they were all spread out in the morning sunshine trying to warm up. Ha! Fickle Fall!
