Friday’s Hunt v2.17

21 Oct

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 R, Week’s Favorite, and black and/or orange.  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 Q:  You have to be quick and quiet to photograph some of the critters out in pasture.  I was lucky enough to find a red-bellied woodpecker and a squirrel close together.  Sorry for the bad quality, but they are too quick for me to get a good shot.


Week’s Favorite:  I have to say, introducing Llenny and the lladies was my favorite.  I finally let Maybeline and Odie out with the rest of the herd last night, and it didn’t take long for them to meet.  Here, Llenny’s singing his deep, throaty love songs.  That’s what will cause the girls to ovulate.  Here’s he’s just hanging on Odie and singing, but hopefully we’ll have crias in about a year.

fall/spring:  I love this time of year.  It makes me wish I had more trees that got brilliant fall colors.  Most of mine just turn brown.

I still think the farm is beautiful this time of year, even if the colors are more muted.


Now it’s your turn!

When Llenny Almost Met the Lladies

19 Oct

I decided to let Llenny back into the side of the barnyard where Odie and Maybeline are.  That way they could meet through the fence.  The girls were watching as the goats came up from pasture.

When Llenny came up, he didn’t really care that I had opened the doorway for him.  He was just hanging out in the other side of the barn, so I guided him towards thh open door.



He did decide he’d come out and then he glanced to the south.


Had he looked the other way, he’d have noticed the girls.  Of course, they hadn’t seen him either, and they lost interest when I didn’t have a treat.


Finally, Llenny was done with his drink, so he decided to itch his foot and head back to the other side of the barn.


About that time, Maybeline noticed Llenny.  She wanted to get a closer look, but he just kept walking.


I tried to go get him again, but he had had enough of me telling him what to do.


He just put his ears back in disgust and went out to pasture.  Well, there’s always another day.

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

Maybeline and Odie joined our family here at Eden Hills yesterday!

We are so excited to add these two ladies.


Soon, they’ll get to meet Llenny.


Hopefully, we’ll have crias in about a year.  (They have an 11 1/2 month gestation period.)

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