Merry Day After Christmas

We’re on the tail end of the blizzard that has been hammering us since Sunday afternoon…it started out blowy and blustery on Christmas Eve and just got steadily worse.
But, we’re almost through it, and by tomorrow, it’s supposed to be done. And then, the clean up starts.

But, everyone is safe, well fed, and doing just fine.
The horses were even kicking up their heels a bit this morning. πŸ˜‰

Hopefully, once the weather settles, and the clean up is done, I can do my annual Yule photo shoot with the Girls.
Yeah, it’ll be late, but that’s okay.
I’ll still enjoy doing it, and I’ll enjoy sharing it, and I’m sure y’all will enjoy seeing it. πŸ˜‰

In the mean time, I hope everyone has had a warm, happy, and healthy holiday season…

Happy holidays to all y'all!

Happy holidays to all y’all!


Christmas Eve

It’s a blustery and blowy day…we’re moving into another blizzard.
Any where from 10-20 inches of snow expected and then, the wind. We’re as ready as can be…extra feed for hennys and horses socked away, good food in the house, gas for the generator, just in case…

What isn’t done is my Yule photo shoot with the Girls.
Safe to say, that’s going to have to wait until the weather settles down.
Y’see, it would have been done sooner, but I didn’t get the final necessary piece to do it until yesterday…despite trying to line things up for the past month and a half. 😑
Turns out, my local gov’t isn’t that great at returning calls, messages and inquires. Well, big stinkin’ surprise there!
So, it’ll be a bit, but I’ll get it done. πŸ™‚

Instead, I have for you, a few images of my Girl from yesterday…

Sleepy horse...

Sleepy horse…

It may have been cold, but the sun was shining, and let me tell you, sunshine on her black coat means warm Girl…and that means nap time. πŸ˜‰

When you need to use the fence as a pillow...

And then, as always, we had a cat come help…and he spoiled her nap.

Trouble whispers sweet nothings to her...

This one is one of The Kid’s shots…she wanted to borrow my camera to take some pictures of the dog and her log, and happened to capture this moment between these 2.
Super cute. πŸ™‚

Snowy Day on the Farm

We have had a few blizzard warnings this winter…today we’re under another one. It was so bad out here, that Hubby had to turn around and come home, instead of going into work today. The highway-once he got there!-simply disappeared. 😦

Here’s the view from my front window:

out front, to the pasture is there, somewhere!!

out front, to the east…my pasture is there, somewhere!!

Here’s the view out back:

Good thing for the big tree!

Good thing for the big tree!

Beyond that tree is my field…my field goes for another 1/2 mile past that tree!! Um, yeah, it’s out there somewhere!

Tonight we’re looking at the snow stopping, but the wind coming up. So tomorrow, we’ll spend the day digging out. Then we have to take Daphne in to the vet for a cast check. It’s been 2 weeks since she broke her paw, and she seems to be doing well. Other than her trying to chew the cast, which results in The Cone of Shame. I’ll have to get pictures of that to show y’all, because oh my gosh, it’s funny!

Stay warm, friends!
