Freckles Dilemma in the Pasture

"Hey, Brownie.....,look . We are in a different place. That's our house way up there."

"And look over there. That's a new fence. What happen? Why did they let us out here? I'm confused. Things are not the same."
" You guys keep calling this "greener pastures", but I think something is up. Why were the tall ones so happy and saying something about the goats finally earning their keep? Hey...., stop eating and think for a minute. This just doesn't settle right with me. I may be smaller than all of you ,but my brain is telling me something is just not right. You don't get oak and toyon bushes for free. Mark my words. Something is up!"

  1. Great! I can picture them as they eat and wonder . . . what's up with this?

  2. Aren't they just the funniest little creatures!

  3. Poor Babies!!!! Don't tell them that in some parts of the world they fatten goats up so they can serve them at the dinner table. I know you are going to think I am about as smart as Freckles, but until Alley Oop told me they send the goats to the butcher that are auctioned off at the fair... I did not know this and I think it is just awful...... "I'm on your side Brownie and crew!"
