I Promised Baby Pictures

But I've had issues with gettin' them.  The mommas just aren't workin' with me.  Most of the time when I want to take pictures, they are off in the back pasture.  When I don't have my camera, they are up by the house.

Today, I noticed they were in the pasture behind the barn.  I thought great!  I can go thru the barn and sit on top of the pens.  Get some good pictures.  So I grab my gear and head out there.  As soon as I perch myself on top of the panels, I see this...

Mommas runnin' off with their children.  Come on!  I just want to take their picture!

They don't listen to me.  I told them y'all wanted pictures.  Again, nothing.  And then there's this gal.  You see her?

She keeps her baby hid in the back pasture.  No tellin' how long it'll be before I get it's picture.  I guess I need to explain the blog concept to these girls.  And that I'm not a great story teller so I NEED pictures!

They never do want to cooperate! Shame on them, you'd think they would want to show off a little ;)

Farmchick said...

Why~why~why won't these animals ever cooperate?? lol Well they are cute anyway! :) Looks like it is really greening up there..with just our three days of 60's the grass has started to green up really nice. Of course, the rain or snow will cover it up today! :( Stop over and visit soon!
