We are all under the sentence of Death,
but with a sort of indefinite reprieve.
“This life is full of trials and tribulations, so you have to capture humour whenever and wherever you can find it.”
― Steven Callahan,
In the warmth of the sun rising over the horizon…
From 6:30 this morning:
Remember the mohawk?
Here’s a pictorial of how that came about, and why I simply maintain it now:
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? 😉
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?
Oh, but now Mama’s yelling…it’s the old standby-and she’s disappointed if I don’t yell at her…
That’s my special Girl.
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. 😉
Of course, starts with s would have to be our dear sweet Sable.
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.
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. 😉
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!
Playing along with The Daily Post prompt of Pink…
Pink flowers on a lovely rump…
Pink mints for a Certain Girl…
Pink of Hubby’s shirt…
What was once a pink halter crown…
Little pink piggies…and a puggie in pink 😉
Astrid wears the pink flowers…
Beet pulp buckets…4 pink buckets for the 4 mares…
Sable and her pink hat…
I must admit, we are all feeling much better.
Thank goodness! It’s been a tough couple of weeks, with all of us being down in some way.
This whole farming lifestyle does not play well with being sick, I tell ya! 😉
I did get out last week to take some pictures, and yesterday, we had a wonderful afternoon of grooming and pampering the Girls.
That was so great for the Spirit…even if I did scare Cookie a time or 2 with my coughing. lol
And, I’m even on time for my offerings for this week’s Friday’s Hunt hosted by Teresa at Eden Hills.
The prompts are Starts with R, Week’s Favorite and Window…
Starts with R
Who else but our loveable Ruby?
Purple halter…not her red breakaway, because she’s been a very good Girl about getting haltered to work, and then being released.
She’s come a long way, our Ruby Girl has, and we’re super proud of her. ❤
Now, if only that Cookie would give up her breakaway…*sigh*
Speaking of The Cookie…
My beautiful Girl having a nap…in the pile of hay.
Where else do you nap, but in the pile of expensive food that Mama puts out for you to eat?!?
I had a very small window of opportunity to capture this next image…
I was scratching Astrid’s withers, and it was a darn good scratch. So much so, she reached out to groom Ruby (because we don’t allow the horses to groom us…) and in order to catch it, I had to dash backwards and push the button in time, before Astrid stopped.
I’m glad I was able to capture at least one shot!
Have a great week friends…
