Friday’s Hunt v1.18

29 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.  I’m excited for week eighteen!  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 S, Week’s Favorite, and smile.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with R:  I thought this tree was perfect for a lower case letter r.  Of course, the goats wanted to come help me when I went out to photograph it.  They like to help like that.

We’ve had some nice rains this week.  It’s making the grass nice and green.  I’m sure the robin likes the wet ground for catching worms.

Week’s Favorite:  Even though the crab apple blossoms are past their prime, I really liked this picture.  It reminds me that I should take my camera off its auto settings more often.

Texture:  Each of the animals have their own unique texture.  Llenny’s wool is amazingly soft.  I have an e-mail in to the guy who sheared him last year, but I haven’t heard back from him yet.  I don’t know who I’ll get to shear him if I can’t get this guy.

Bud has short hair.  He had a visit with the vet this week because he was straining to urinate.  It seems that with the constant dripping after the bladder marsupialization, he has some scald.  It was scabbing over.  We have it open and clean, and I have a spray to try and promote healing.  Poor boy.

Now it’s your turn!

I’m also sharing with Random 5 Friday, Fun Friday Favorites, and Willy Nilly Friday.

They Make Me Smile

20 Apr

It’s time for Jenny Matlock’s Warm Heart Wednesday, and I have to say, the kids make me smile.  I love seeing happy healthy kids.

Llenny makes me smile too.  He’s a pretty good guy.

Sometimes, you have to watch a llama with new kids.  I could never trust my last llama with the little ones, but Llenny is awesome.  He just likes to sniff them over.

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.  You’re free to use all three or just one.

The Wind Blows

7 Apr

Last Friday, we had a beautiful evening.  The sunset was spectacular.

It’s been windy since then.  It’s blown from the north and the south.  It’s been a hot wind and a cold wind.  It’s been dry and it’s been rainy.  Throughout it all, it’s been windy.  It was so windy  that it blew my fence down between the west side of the barnyard where the main goat herd was and the front pasture where my new moms were.

That means everyone is back together.  I had planned on waiting another week so the kids were a little bigger, but I guess it’s okay.

Some have made it out to the Back Forty, and they have made it back.

I will say, Llenny was a bit confused though.  He didn’t seem to know why on earth his herd was on the other side of the fence.

Poor llama.  He has is all figured out now though.

I do hope you’ll come back for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  The items for our hunt is on the top of my side bar.

Today, I’m sharing with Good Fences, Skywatch Friday, and SOOC Sunday (all images).
