A Little Lanny Story; In the Barnyard

Lanny has worked hard most of the day. She has been going to bed at a fairly decent hour, okay anything before midnight would be better than her typical three a.m.! Funny, she has been sleeping later. Lots o' stuff goin' on in all the gardens, boy that crazy lady is busy. Heading to the house, she sees a sheep in her barn garden! Then as she turns the corner this!

"What's going on here?" Lanny exclaimed.

"What is Chuck and that sheep doing out and in my...

"Chuck, you almost stepped on my garlic!

"Look at this, you tromped through my garden!


"You shoved through here?! Crummamoly Chuck! What's the matter, dinner not coming fast enough for you?!
"Look, you practically sunk to your hocks jumping over here."

Dirt says, "Come on Chuck, your days are getting numbered a little shorter, bud.

"You two need to stay put, or else!" Lanny says insistently as she turns for the house.
"Pbbbbbbbbbtt" an impolite sound is heard coming from the barnyard.


Lanny turns back around toward the sound and looks closer at the offenders. "You two are unbelivable. How dare you give me a raspberry! My freezer is nearly empty you know, I'll have the last laugh over this before I'm through with you two! Lanny shouts a warning threat as she turns on her heal and heads to the house one last time for the Goucho Roast she put in the crock pot at lunch time. I said goucho not groucho.

Looks like Chuck was causing a lot of trouble. I wonder who the ringleader was, the cow or the sheep? I hope they stay out next time!

I love the picture of the two with their tongues sticking out at you. You sure know how to spoil a calf's day don't you ? But then again, I think they know how to spoil yours!

A lady at spinning the other night said she reads a farm blog with the motto, "Be nice, or be tasty!" Maybe you should post this memo in the barn.

Mildred said...

I would almost think my cat, Ditto, is the ringleader if not for the distance!!!

I'm laughing aloud - first at the audacious livestock and second at your response. Oh , KathyB's motto contribution is great! Be Nice or Be Tasty - emblazoned on barns across the country - woo hoo. Wasn't it Robert Frost who told us "good fences make good neighbors"? Could be paraphrased - good fences make longer livestock lives. Thanks for the chuckles - the adventures of Lanny -keeper of the critters and cucina (I had to use a foreign word for kitchen to make it a cutesy remark - I'm all over cutesy today)

Never trust farm animals. Ya never know what's going in their fuzzy brains. I like the saying quoted above of "Be nice or be tasty". I wonder if that would work with my 3 worthless dogs? ha ha
Photos makes it look like you live on a busy highway. I can't wait for our dirt road to be paved. ♥ ∞

I can send Bandit up there. She could teach those two digging skills :)

Kanani said...

My dear friend Chester Aaron is a garlic farmer! Oh my, the problems he has with wild turkeys and deer!

Well, at least Chuck had the sense to follow your husband into the barn.

Karen said...

I loved the story and pics. You need to write a children's book!

Susie said...

Hopefully they didn't do too much damage.

Shellmo said...

LOL at your 2 little rebels there! I think Chuck was the ringleader!

Jennifer said...

What a cute, funny post! It made me smile and I loved that last picture with both of them sticking their tongues out. Too cute! I once did a whole post on my blog with just pictures of different animals on our farm with their tongues out. I was surprised how many I had! LOL.

Daisy said...

HA HA HA! How rude! I think you should send those two raspberry blowers off to boarding school so they can learn some manners! Thanks for the laugh this morning, Lanny.

Sorry your garden got trampled. Hope they didn't do too much damage.

Cliff said...

Tell dirt that's a mighty big bucket calf.
If I had to spend all day saturday repairing and replacing an electric fence then you can too.
Last year I seeded a large area of the farmstead to grass and had a great stand and it rained 2 inches one night and that's when the horses got out. Not all ten. Just seven of them. Ruined the whole deal. Poop.

Lea of Farmhouse Blessings said...

LOL ~ they really were giving you raspberries, weren't they? Too cute.

Yes, I put out my cool crops ~ some cabbages, broccoli, spinach and lettuces. It should make a nice salad bowl!

I've been spending most of my time outdoors and enjoying every moment. Hope your spring time is happy ... and that your little dears stay out of your garlic patch.

Smiles, Lea

Carol............. said...

I love the picture editorial! I use garlic whenever possible so BAD, BAD, BAD, whoever stepped into the pants! LOL

Ted M. Gossard said...

yes. I can just about smell the place, and say, "Watch your step!" Lovely photos, and nice little story. Looks like Spring is breaking there rather well.

Miss Linda said...

Oh, poor Lanny! I'm so sorry for the damage to your garden. I hope the fences will contain those two naughty culprits!

Far Side of Fifty said...

I really enjoyed this today! Leave it to the critters! I am a night person too..and not a morning one. I enjoyed your spots of green..and it looks warmer there too! :)

Marla said...

Chuck seems to be causing some trouble. Glad you have him under control now.

Tipper said...

They don't look very scared of your freezer :) How mean of Chuck to trample the garlic!
