Ed has given us quite the challenge with this week's subject of sound!
With fifteen roosters, there's really no lack of sound to photograph in my world. Here's King Avelino, a Gold Laced Polish, telling the world good morning, as Gino, a Sicilian Buttercup, waits his turn.
Otto, an Apenzeller Spitzhauben, puts in his opinion about the day. It seems all of them decided it was a day for endless crowing. Could it be they know our neighbors are trying to have a wedding next door right now?
Thought you might get a kick out of this. Out of kindness we took our rescue sheep, blind Phoebe and her son Finley, to the far side of the property early this morning to graze since their pen is not too far from where the wedding was going to take place. When they hear people around they like to tell you in a noisy way they are hungry, because no matter how much we feed these two they are always looking for a handout.
While I was uploading the chicken photos, I heard Finley's distress call, a loud, low, persistent baaah that means "momma, come quick!" (Any hope for a peaceful country wedding by this time was crushed). So I rushed down the creek, and there was Finley coming to get me to lead me to the problem. I love it when he "boings" as if all four legs were pogo sticks.
Up the hill we go to a thicket and he shows me the problem: Phoebe is tangled in green brier and juniper. He's been caught in green brier before and thought something was "biting" him.
I was getting dressed up in case they invited me to the wedding! Sheep!
