The cheese starts here

Can you tell who we met in the hills today?

Can you tell I remembered my camera???

This is where the cheese starts out! They smelled nice too. Comes from eating rosemary, thyme and pine needles all day.

This little guy ended up separated from the it a flock of goats? I know it is a flock of sheep...let me see, hold on a minute will! LOVE's a trip of goats!

The little sweety must have thought the grass would be sweeter/greener/whatever....then he discovered he didn't like being alone.


He managed to get back. Took him ages. He had to run along the wall he'd jumped off and couldn't get back up, and had to go WAAAAY down the mountain before coming back up inside the wall, only to discover that everyone else was now outside the wall.

Jumped down again.

Chuck discovered that for now (fingers crossed) he is really really afraid of dogs. Panic stricken. "Can we just go home now" scared.

Poor thing.

Hope he gets over it soon.

He is such a little mama's boy right now.

Lordy, I would have been terrified encountering that "trip." How close where you?!

J.G. said...

Those goats are a trip, all right! Such lovely patterns and colors, all jumbled together.

Sorry Chuck is so scared, but can't say that I blame him. poor baby.

Carla said...

I bet the cheese would be yummy! Love those goat pictures, too. Hugs, Carla

Looks a little like the running of the bulls.

I was trying to figure out last night what animal to use as a comparison in reference to coralling a 2-yr- & a 3 1/3-yr-old. I think goats might work. could probably substitute pictures of toddlers for the goats, keep the story, and have it make total sense.

So is it a trip of toddlers? A toddle of toddlers? A poop of toddlers? Any would work.

Ha! Poor Chuck. He should meet my weinie of a schnauzer. All bark, no bite.

What a fun crowd to bump into.

Beth, actually the trip were totally calm, they weren't worrying me at all. They were too busy munching on stuff and we were really very close. 20 feet maybe.

JG, hopefully with time he will calm down again to some extent. It was a trip!

Carla, the cheese is SUPER yummy....mmmmm

CS...does a bit, but it was more like the running of Chuck!

TeacherMom, I have always thought of it more like hearding cats, but I know what you mean. I think a poop of toddlers is about perfect. Thanks for dropping by!

Hula, if your weenie shnauzer is a girl, he would be MOST delighted to meet her!

Read this yesterday from my phone but couldn't see the photos! Wow! That kind of encounter makes for one cool walk!

Hugs to Chuck! ;-)

I love goats they look so sweet. Are they herded with a dog?
Poor Chuck! I'm not surprised he's traumatised

oreneta said... was pretty neat! I went by again today and you can still smell that they were there!

Boo and Trev, hearded by a man and a number of dogs, he had a motley assortment of about 6 or 7 dogs. Ranging from little mutt kind of jobs right up to an English Sheep dog and a Saint Bernard....
