I’ve been joining up with several blog hops the past few days. There are so many things to share about the farm, that sometimes, it gets hard to decide what I should share each day. Then, I find, I lose focus, and don’t post at all for a while. In joining the link-ups, every now and then, I’m hoping to share more with everyone. 🙂
Today, I’m linking to Scavenger Hunt Sunday…this one is fun, because each week a series of words or phrases is posted, and you take pictures to try to reflect the themes given. Here are this weeks themes, as interpreted by me, inspired by our farm:
Polo is one of 2 (stray? feral? abandoned by previous owner?) cats who moved into our garage just before winter…we don’t know where they came from, but, we didn’t have the heart to evict them. Winter was coming, and everybody deserves a warm place, and food in their bellies. I haven’t been able to catch them, not even in a cat trap. So, no vet trip, no groomers, and that’s why Polo’s coat looks so neglected.
Signs of Spring
If this isn’t a sign of spring, I don’t know what is. Yes, I do mean the fence. A few short weeks ago, we couldn’t see that fence, for all the snow! We’ve had some wonderful warm days, and the snow is, ever so slowly, melting.
Last Thing you Bought
Aside from groceries, this as the last thing I bought…that was a pedicure for 2 of the girls. I’ve already explained how things went with The Paints, so they will get trims later. These are the trimmings from Astrid and Sable. Scrubbed, soaked, dried and ready for use. What will they be used for, you ask? Well, they can be used for dog chewies, but I’m not doing that with them. Nope, I plan to use them to make jewelry with. Here’s a close up of one of Sable’s pieces, with a light polish on it:
Once I decide where to cut this, and what shape, I’ll finish polishing, and set into a piece of jewelry. The first few pieces will be for The Kid, because Sable is her horse, and then, there will be pieces available for sale through our soon-to-be Farm Store.
Here, I’m inside the shelter, shoveling out horse apples. As usual, someone always wants to see what I am doing. This time, my shadow was Ruby. Whether she was feeling like she had to guard the door to protect me, or because she wanted to be the Boss and decide when I was “allowed” out, she stayed there the whole time I was cleaning.
Four of my very favorite things here on our farm. This was from a windy day-it’s actually from mid-March-where they were cantering around, playing, and having fun. Have to say, I do love these four things. 😉
