No, not kids...my emus! They are growing so fast. I love to watch them. They were so happy when I let Derby out. He doesnt really care either way as long as he gets to EAT. We are monitoring that closely. He gets to eat for about two hours...and believe me, he gets his fill. Then its time to go back to drylot world. We have gotten him down to a decent weight and I want to keep it that way. He looks and feels so much better these days.
I want to hug and cuddle an emu so bad! I dont think they are the huggy kissie type though. You can touch them, when you are feeding them. Boo even let me sit right next to him for awhile the other day. Its funny, when the goats come up for attention, they will seem to want some attention too, like they are jealous. When I try to reach out to them though they back off. We have plenty of time though. Nothing but time. They are young. They will relax more with time.
Here we go...some pictures I just took...and a couple of videos to enjoy too. Hope everyone is having a fine Thursday. It is warm and sunny here today. My kind of weather. :)
Boo saying HI below...
Yep, thats the goats out there too. The horse and the goats and the emus all get along just fine. One of my Speckled Sussex gave up on being paid attention to as you can see her wandering off towards Derby. Hey! I was busy shooting video! ;)
