As promised yesterday, here is my blog post dedicated to Elliott the steer and Marley the pig. Both participated in Allaina's photo shoot and I am so glad they did. Gosh what fun! Elliott was a big baby--very sweet and cooperative for the camera. He stood still and posed nicely looking quite handsome in the process. And Marley, well, Marley was quite ornery! What a character. He was attached to a bowling ball of all things--it was like his teddy bear. His bowling ball had to be in the pen with him at all times. But we managed to get him to leave his pen and beloved bowling ball for a few pics. In the first photo of Marley below you will see he was also fond of mini-marshmellows. Allaina had to bribe him with the treat to keep him from running and snorting around once we did get him away from his bowling ball and out of his pen:)
A barn cat happened to make a surprise appearance during the photo shoot as well. I don't know his name. He jumped on Allaina's lap as I was snapping away and I figured he did not want to be left out, so I went ahead and took his picture to make him happy. I talked about Allaina's gorgeous eyes in her blog post yesterday, but that cat sure has gorgeous eyes, too!
Thanks, Allaina and family, for having me over to the farm! It was an absolute blast!
