Friday’s Hunt v4.15

13 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.

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 P, surprise, and looking up. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything on the farm right now, but I will try to make sure to visit all participants.  I have to say, the change to my teaching assignment this year is really killing me.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with O:  I am still waiting on Odie (and Maybeline) to have her offspring.

City/Town:  Just when I need sunshine and dry weather, the drought has disappeared, and I’m gone at work all day with rain at home.  We’re also about ten degrees cooler than usual for this time of year.  That is not the weather I ordered for Odie to have her baby.

Outside my classroom window today.

Purple:  I think Margarita has earned a purple heart with her battle against the coyote.  She’s holding her own at the hospital.  They are going to keep her through the weekend to make sure she stays hydrated.

Now it’s your turn!


Just When You Count on the Drought

8 Oct

Just when I am used to every day being dry, and I count on it being nice and dry for the next week or so while Odie and Maybeline have their crias, we get rain.

Lots of rain.  Princess looks pretty proud about blocking the door and keeping the llamas out, but I think it has more to do with Farina standing right behind her.  Don’t worry.  They did finally make their way inside.

It looks like a little over three inches according to my redneck rain gauge.

I had planned on the two llamas having their crias in the front paddock where we just finished the dirt work.  My nephew delivered a round bale and put the fence back up.

It’s all mud.

The hay looks pretty sad too because I didn’t get a tarp over it because I worked late all last week with parent teacher conferences.

I’m pretty sure, I can’t ask the girls to give birth in a mud pit.  I think out on pasture is the perfect place for them to have their crias.

I just have to make sure to bring them up before the night.

Lots of Noise

16 Sep

We’ve had lots of thunder today, but I swear the scattered showers seem to miss my farm by the smallest amount.

We’ve had a few sprinkles and a brief downpour, but it’s still dry under the trees.

Here’s hoping we get some more rain overnight.
