Saturday critters July 2015

Stopping at the One-Stop (rest rooms, shop and fuel station) outside the city, I snapped the geese in an enclosure
On closure inspection, we noticed that the birds had a green sheen on their chest feathers - 
Grant thought it might be the dam they swim in (not visible) 

 I tried to capture cattle along the road from the city. 
Windmills are common in the Free State

Beasts grazing on the side of the road

Back in Marquard we passed a house where there were two little dogs in the street. We give our pets extra love and care because of other animals who aren't so privileged
Across the road a rooster strutted out of the grass
A handsome fellow! 
As I wrote this post, privileged pup, Skabenga lies on his blanky in the sun near my computer
 He fell asleep with his striped mouse in his mouth ! 

I'm linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen, here

May you all have a wonderful weekend!
