Friday’s Hunt May 21st

It is the May long weekend in Canada…
Which can only mean one thing:
Even though there are plans to work outside, get the garden ready, work with ponies and have a few wobbly pops on the deck, it’s raining.
May long weekend is notorious for giving us super crappy weather.
And yet, we love it here…we must be crazy. πŸ˜‰
I will admit, I was hopeful that the bad weather would miss us.
Though to be fair, the pasture can use the rain. I just would have preferred tomorrow.

This week’s prompts for Friday’s Hunt hosted by Teresa at Eden Hills are Starts with T, Week’s Favorite, and Food.

Starts with T

Ah, my TroubleCat.

He’s such a handsome boy…and he has benefited greatly from the neutering. He’s always been a friendly, lovey dovey cat. That just goes with being handled and loved on from the day you’re born…but, he’s also been the top cat in the barn yard and with the testosterone raging, he beat the tar out of every other male cat around. Fixed or not.
I’m 99.9% sure he’s the cause of Ghost’s face injury (which is almost 100% healed.)
Now, there are no unfixed boys (or girls) and we have feline peace.
It’s lovely!

Week’s Favorite

You guys saw this one in the Basking post:

The Cookie

My sweetheart ❀
She turns 12 today.
Unfortunately, the planned photo shoot didn’t happen due to the rain, but once we have sunshine again, it will go.
I have a lovely Happy 12th Birthday shoot in mind. πŸ˜‰


They aren’t yet, but, we are raising them to be:

Bacon Bits 2017

This is our brave piglet…

This one ^^^…heh…she’s brave girl all right! She likes to chuff and bark at me, trying to convince me to leave the pig yard. She’s also the first one to come running for the milk bucket, so maybe the sounds are to tell me she’d like more milk. lol.
She’s a cute girlie, that’s for sure.

It looks like this year’s naming theme is going to be singers.
Once we have each piglet with a name, I’ll photograph and formally introduce them.
Yes, we name our food.

Happy food tastes better.

Really, Black Horse? Really?!?

Remember the mohawk?

Here’s a pictorial of how that came about, and why I simply maintain it now:

Eating dandelions

There are dandelions in the pasture…she has no qualms about sticking her big fat head out the fence to eat the ones on the other side…maybe they’re yellower? πŸ˜‰
It’s not like she’s stuck her head out and balanced on the edge of a precipice…its flat land for miles around…what’s the big deal, right?

Nom, nom, nom…dandys!

Oh, but now Mama’s yelling…it’s the old standby-and she’s disappointed if I don’t yell at her…

Get your big fat f***ing head…

Back inside that fence or I’m going to…

Kick your giant f***ing ass all the way to your giant f***ing ears!!!

Oh, the smug satisfaction of Mama yelling at her…she loves every second of it.

That’s my special Girl.

Friday’s Hunt May 14th

Happy Mother’s Day.

If your kids have 2 feet or 4 feet…
If your kids are no longer with you, for any reason…
If motherhood in your world is complicated…
If you’re the picture perfect Mama…

Happy Mother’s Day.

I see you. ❀
I feel you. ❀
I love you. ❀
Thank you for all you do.
You got this. ❀

Happy Mother’s Day.

This week’s prompts for Friday’s Hunt hosted by Teresa at Eden Hills are Starts with S, Week’s Favorite, and Family.

Starts with S

Hmmm, I don’t know what we could use for S…
Might be too hard of a prompt for me. πŸ˜‰
Of course, starts with s would have to be our dear sweet Sable.

Someone once asked me if I was going to dedicate myself to the service of Epona since I have horses… I said, “Since I have horses, I am already in Her service.”

Our amazing golden Girl, who someone dropped at auction with no explanation why, but we were Blessed to meet and fall in love with.
She is meant to be here.

Week’s Favorite

Another one who is meant to be here…
He came here from who knows where, feral and frightened of all humans.
It took The Kid and I near onto 2 years to convince him that humans can be trusted. He’s become my FarmYard pal, following me all over, talking up a storm. We just recently got him neutered, so he’ll stop heeding the call to find a willing female to spread his rugged handsomeness around the community. πŸ˜‰


Dang, the boy knows how to pose for a picture.
He’s so good-looking!


Here we have Miss Xena…


This little missy is one of 3 of Ghost’s kittens who are still here.
Of our 5 remaining barn cats, 4 are family, and 2 in the house are related as well (Nancy and Daisy Mae).
Xena is a fantastic huntress.
This kitty took down a seagull on her own!
Of course, all the Ghost babies seem to have skill hunting…
Xena with gulls, Gabrielle is an expert with rodents, and Trouble?
Yeah, Trouble has taken down smaller geese.

That’s pretty darn amazing!
