“Something very odd is going on in that field. Will you take a look at that? Really, it’s hardly decent!”, thinks the young heron, watching the goings-on across the lake.
“Looks fairly normal to me, just a tranquil horse munching some grass…”, thinks the photographer.
“Hang on a second, are those goats? Goats and horses, do they mix? Well it seems they do, and as it happens everyone seems to be getting on just fine”, concludes the photographer.
“Well, you said fine, but you know, boys will be boys, and goats will be goats”, says the horse. It seems that there is a bit of competition for the attentions of a certain lady goat.
“It wasn’t me!”, says one male goat.
“Wasn’t me either!”, says the other male goat.
“Err, that’s not what I saw”, says the young and slightly outraged heron.
“Seen it all before. No big deal”, says the horse. “Think I’ll eat some more grass”.
“Well, spring is in the air”, thinks the photographer. “Wait a minute, we’re in December, we haven’t even had Christmas yet…very strange times we are living through”.

You have interesting neighbours!
Yes we live in the bucolic part of Brussels, really at the very edge, touching the forest, so we feel our neighbours are quite countrified 😆
We are in an agricultural area but given to tillage in the last ten years. Before that we used love having cows in the fields around us, such pleasant and friendly animals.
Great story 😁💕
Thanks Tonn! It was amusing to watch them all, especially those frisky goats 😆
Such a funny story 🙂 Animals will always give us inspirtion. Enjoy the weekend !
Thanks Rudi, I also really enjoyed your story about the birds and the overcrowded landing!
