Leftovers Again

24 Sep

Wanda always knows how to pose for a perfect picture.

Another of Hilda feeding her kids.  I’m torn between weaning them and leaving them on their mom.  We’ll see.

The morning after I had to put Cutie back up north because she and Ava and Caroline wouldn’t quit fighting, I tried letting her out again.  When the rest of the herd went out to pasture, I let her out to catch up to them.  I assume it went well.  They always fight less when they get put together out in pasture.  I don’t know why.

Cutie on the right when they headed back out after getting fed that night.

I was really surprised to see a hummingbird moth the other evening!

Sorry for the bad pictures; it was getting dark.

It was enjoying the night blooming flowers of the jimsonweed.

While we’re talking insects, it’s time for the monarch migration.  They are everywhere!  I’m glad to see they are having a good year.

A llama just for the fun of it.  I’d hate to leave them out, but they are spending a lot of time out in pasture right now.  I don’t get much time with them between that and work.

As the kids get weaned and sold, my moms go back to their adult companions.  For most it’s their mom.

Athena and Cinnamon

Bambi and Daisy

For others it’s other relatives or friends.

Onyx back to snuggle with her maa, Victoria; Flower gets along with them, and Coral is Victoria’s 3/4 sister.

Chiffon and Venus: sisters from another mother.

But everyone generally has someone to snuggle with or keep them company.

Summer Scenes

29 Jul

Lately, it’s started to feel like late summer.  I hear the cicadas in the evening; the grasshoppers and crickets have made their appearance.

I don’t know how time flies so quickly.

Friday’s Hunt v4.5

4 Aug

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.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with F, self (portrait), and new. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with 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 E:  Estarr starts with E.  In fact, the farm she came from names all their llamas E????.  I guess, if Ollie managed to breed her, I’ll have to keep with that tradition.

Estarr

Drop(s): We finally had some much needed rain early on Thursday.  It wasn’t much–only about 1/10 of an inch, but I am grateful for every drop.

Happy: Sky is always a pretty happy guy, but when I let him play in the water, he’s really happy!

Obviously, I am not good at taking pictures with my cell phone while spraying the dog with water.  That’s way more multi-tasking than I can handle.

Here’s a video version.
