The Morning Ritual ~

Pinocchio is usually the first one out of the barn in the morning~
he s-l-o-w-l-y walks out, yawning & sniffing the fresh morning air,
then proceeds to check on his surroundings...

in the paddock where he & Daisy 'live', there is a patch of dirt
that absolutely fascinates them...

Every day,
"Nocchi" saunters over to the dirt patch and gives it a good sniff...

...then plops his Big Self down and rolls around in the dirt like a humongous dog!!
with all the commotion, Daisy can't keep herself contained any longer....
she runs out of the barn to see what The Big Guy is doing.

Up comes Nocchi, and Daisy heads for the dirt, sniffing loudly ~

and, not able to contain herself a moment longer,
hits the ground with a thud and up go the legs...all akimbo in the air!
{{I tried to snap her legs in the air but she is fast!}}
and so it goes, every morning...

It's funny how we all have our routines.
...even the Animals.
Blessings from the Farm,
