A Change of Seasons

22 Sep

I was going to do a wordless Wednesday, but let’s face it, I like rambling about my farm and animals.  So here’s Pretzel snuggled up with Pongo.  She has done really well at finding someone to snuggle with.  Unfortunately, she’s reached the age where the big goats are looking at her like she’s fair game.  These goats and their fighting/bullying is driving me crazy.

Pretzel and Pongo

Here’s a bonus of Thunder.  The extra horn and ears belong to his brother, but they wouldn’t pose so I could actually see them both.


They could take posing lessons from my sweet boy, Pluto.


I had to chuckle at Haley up in the manger napping.  I am so glad she’s recovered and done well after the surgery on her ankle.  I really do adore her.


Dolly and Aurora were lounging in the barn doorway Sunday morning.

It ended up being another scorching day before the rains cooled us down into more fall-like temperatures.

Speaking of which, happy Mabon!  It’s the first official day of fall.  Soon my beans will be harvested and it will be the end of the farming season.  Well, as much as it ever ends.

This little wooly bear showed up.  I’m not sure what a solid cream means. Hopefully, not stupid record-breaking cold.

I’m ready for cool weather and shorter days to hibernate.

Tiger–just because

Bob (with another injury on his leg; this one did not require a vet visit)

Hopefully, it means Bob will come in for the winter and quit fighting too.

    I always enjoy reading your comments! And seeing your critters, too. You got some really nice pictures of them, again. I always get a smile when I see the pictures of Tiger-kitty. He has such big, round eyes!

    The little woolly bear is really pretty. I never know what, if anything, they might mean, when they show up in the late summer.

    Bob’s owie looks painful!

    I do enjoy all your stories about your life in Eden Hills. My husband’s father’s homeplace was known as Adcock Hills by the locals. It had been in the family for about 130 years when it was sold in 1988. His uncles had passed away and not of the remaining siblings desired to maintain the farm. The siblings were all in their late 60s and early 70s at the time.
    Keep up your lovely writing.

      Sad to see so many family farms lost, but it is hard to make it support a family anymore. Glad you enjoy my posts.
