A battle brews behind the barn

  1. Somebody is mad about something. What we'll never know. Lots of emotion in those pics.

  2. What was that about? Got up on the wrong side of the stall? When I look at those faces, all I can think about is hugging!

  3. Love the last picture. Hank the Enforcer: "Nothing to see here. Move along."

  7. Looks like Alan was in trouble. I love the half hearted kick. Hank had to step in and save the day.

  8. I guess I need a translation about the issue(S) ??

    Hank's expression is rather amusing - 'Tsk - burros' ...

  12. Oh oh! Trouble in paradise! It's a good thing "ranch security" includes Hank because Smooch wouldn't have been able to handle that problem.

  13. Here's the translation: Alan found a particularly good-smelling spot to dig and he didn't want to share it. He tried to get George and Lucy to back off but they wouldn't. Alan then became really annoyed at George, which only made George more interested. George took over the spot in picture 7 and Alan was getting exasperated. In the eighth picture, Alan reclaims the hole with another half-hearted kick, but George was still in his space and Alan turned to me for help. Then George flipped him the bird with his tail. Then Hank walked over and assured me he'd handle it.

    1. I didn't know what the trouble was all about, but when I saw George's tail flipped toward Alan's face I had the same thought about flipping him off. I like the one where George & Lucy are looking toward the door. I imagine them thinking that Hank is coming and Alan better get his act together.

      Good thing you provided the translation! I wouldn't have known what was going on, otherwise.
      Poor Alan, just wanted to enjoy his digging spot! ;)

  14. I love the narrative in these pictures! Even without the translation the tension is thick, and Hank's sidelong look in the last shot is priceless. Your herd is my favorite drama.
