Friday’s Hunt v3.16

21 Apr

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter.  Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be:  Starts with Q, Week’s Favorite, and evening.   I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top.  I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with P:  All the P goats on my farm–Pam, Patch, Patty, Paul, Peaches, Peanut, Pearl, Pebbles, Peg, Penny, Peppermint Patty, Peter, Pippen, Pistol, Pixie, PJ, Polka Sallie Annie, Pooh, Poppy, Potsie, Precious, Precious, Prince Charming, Princess, and Princess.   I’m featuring Pearl this week (shown below with her mom, Hilda).  I’m thinking I need to give Pearl the sweetheart treatment to make her tame.  After all, she’s Helen’s granddoe and Betty Lou’s great-granddoe and she is named after her great-great-grandmaa, Minnie Pearl.

Week’s Favorite:  The magnolia tree is blooming.  It doesn’t have a lot of blooms, and I’m glad I took some pictures earlier in the week. Although we didn’t get the severe weather they had west of here, we had plenty of winds to mess with the flowers.

Foot or Feet:  My Gypsy kid has dancing feet.  She’s always standing on her back feet hopping around.  Although, she doesn’t seem to think I make a good dancing partner.

Now it’s your turn!

Five Years Later

19 Apr

It was five years ago this month that Snickers first had problems with his mouth.  It was September when he was diagnosed with mouth cancer.  I am amazed at how well he is doing.  We’ve had a couple of rough patches, but if you didn’t know about his problems, you’d never guess he had anything wrong with him.

I am so grateful to still have him in my life.  I’m hoping for another five years!

I hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  This week’s list is at the top of my side bar.

Old Goat’s Home

16 Apr

Minnie Pearl is feeling all of her thirteen years.  It’s hard to go out to pasture all day, so she was staying in the barnyard in the afternoon.  I decided to give her some hay since she was the only goat up here.  The llamas showed up.

Then there were a few sprinkles, so the rest of the goats came back up.  You’ll notice that Minnie is nowhere near her hay.

I’m pretty sure Maybeline is not happy with me taking a picture of her stuffing her face, but that’s what she gets for stealing Minnie’s hay.

So where is Minnie?  I put her in the north paddock.

I was hoping to wait another week or so to let it grow out more (since I just took the bucks off there), but she needs it.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt. I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
