Walking

17 Apr

Now that the weather is nicer and the days are longer, I’m trying to walk in pasture every evening.  Not only is it beautiful, but I have to admit I’ve added a few extra winter pounds this year.  Hopefully, you enjoy my walks because there’s probably going to be a lot of them!

Did I ever tell you how Cinnamon’s boy, Norm, got his name?  It’s short for Ginormous!  He weighed 10 pounds 12 ounces when he was born.

Waiting for the storms to move in Saturday evening.

Looking down at Maybeline.  My hills do give me the chance for some unique perspectives.

I’m not sure Vixen’s girl, Foxy, will ever grow into those ears.

Just a tree reflected in the water.

I love the heady scent of the wild plum blossoms.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items 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.

A Pasture Walk

11 Apr

I needed a nice walk in pasture tonight.  Luckily, we had perfect weather, and I got to enjoy it the beauty of spring.

I even stopped to play with the camera.  I think I can do one of those dreamy water flowing shots now.  I just need a bit bigger  stream and my tripod.

I love this tree.  I think it looks like a dragon undulating across the ground.  Amazingly, it’s still alive.  All those spikes straight up will soon have leaves.

All the trees are getting ready to burst into leaves.  The shade will be nice.

I’m not sure what kind of tree it is that makes these little things.  Maybe a cottonwood?

I think Zinnia is the perfect little Easter goat.  I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t let me put a bonnet on her though.  She has a bit too much of her daddy’s stand offishness.

As a bonus, I might have found my tail count image for next year…

What do you think?
