It's a Roundup!

Hello peeps.  I love driving out to the horse stables to see what's going on.  Call me crazy but I love the dirty, stinky mess.  It reminds me of driving by the dairies where I grew up.  Anyway,  I happen to be there and see these goats and two sheep just walking around, doing whatever they please.  They were runaways!  They had escaped from their stall and were having a good ol' time.

There was a guy in a pickup watching them so I asked if they were his - nope, he just watched them escape!  Being the animal lovers that we are we decided to round them up!  It's time I tell you that this was when I was recouperating from my total knee replacement!  I was wearing sandals as I had a pedicure scheduled later that afternoon.  At this time I was using a cane but when I got out of the car I left it.  I was just going to take photos with my phone -- not do a roundup!
Notice the guy in the white and black shirt?  I don't know how we decided that I would be the one chasing them around and he would be the one standing by the gate where they need to go!  This isn't all of them; I'm guessing there were around a total of twenty and two sheep.
Look at all the babies!  They were so cute; jumping over imaginary objects.  The black and blackish butts are the sheep.  They could have used a good shearing!
Doesn't this one look like a deer!  I knew goats ate just about anything - but pine needles, really?
This horse was just waiting to join in the fun.  Isn't she a beauty.

So, after we successfully rounded them up it was time for my pedicure.  Yikes!  What was I thinking?  Before she started I asked if I could wipe off my feet and sandals.  My feet came out smelling like a rose!!
