In a Vermont winter there are not days of sun, just moments and slivers. As we speak, Betsy Spaniel is taking a sun bath on the front porch, even though it is just 9 degrees. Tough stock (rabbit killer!)
This weekend we had a few hours of cold sun, and an animal-cluster appeared: an arthritic horse in one corner of the pasture, chickens and goats underfoot.
Frasier demonstrates the proper way to address goats, while wearing what I consider to be one of her best outfits, including my hat.
