Want to see if we can sneak up on them?

George and Alan were napping when I went out to feed lunch yesterday.



Let's see how close we can get before they wake up.


Walk softly, Deets. You're in a designated napping zone.




Listen ... can you hear Alan grunting and groaning and sighing? It's a burro thing.




We're all watching you, Alan. Don't start drooling and embarassing yourself.




I don't think he heard me.




One ear is up...he's on to us.




Hi, sleepyhead. Did you enjoy your nap?




Who are all those people and why are they looking at me?


Don't take it personally. He's always a little grumpy when he wakes up.

  1. I absolutely loved this post Carson! Made me laugh, made me smile, made me go, "Oooooooh, how sweet these boys are!" I guess I never thought of them napping like that, but why not ... they've got a beautiful place to relax and take it easy.

  3. He looks like me in the morning. There's nothing nicer than an afternoon nap in the spring sun. It's been a long time coming.
    Best always, Sandra

  5. They are sleeping like babies, very sweet. And Alan, I know how you feel - beeing disturbed in the middle of a wonderful nap is tough. Looks like Deets were hanging with them there, and just came to meet you halfway? Guess he was watching out.

  13. How cute! Those boys were really zonked! I love gently walking up to my horses when they are laying down, and then when they stay there and I can pet them and love on them, it's even more special!

  21. They lifted relaxation to an art level. Lucky them who can enjoy such a peaceful nap!

  22. They do look like they are having an awesome snooze. I'm kind of a worry wart about siestas. Sometimes I look out at my sleeping boys and worry that they are not merely sleeping. I get out the binoculars and check for rib cage moving or ear twitches.

  29. These guys are such "persons"....I mean they each are so distinct and dear, beyond words. I think if I saw them sleeping like that I might worry that maybe they were no longer with us....lol....It's a good thing there is some grunting and groaning.
    What a delightfully dear Post. But then....ALL your posts are delightful and dear.
    Huhs to Alan and George and Deets and YOU!

  30. I love them on their sides...so trusting. But I ALWAYS pause to see the rib cage rise and fall, or an ear twitch. It's just me.
