Back on a Snowy Day, Last Week —- Tuesday, February 9, 2021

During the night, one-day last week, the snow arrived

Not lots and lots of snow,

But enough snow, the ground was frozen

And pleasant to take a wild run about.



The gifts of clean air, fresh snow, who could ask for more?

Those Wonderful Marvelous Girls — Tuesday, February 2, 2021

Even in the middle of winter

There is always so much to do.

Just ask T’Ata and Glory B…

Scattering Sandhill Cranes is just ONE of those fun things to do. 🙂

Glory B and T’Ata are free to roam the farm daily.

Come evening, one of us meets them at the back gate and

takes them into the corrals and the barn for their meal.

The cows don’t mind sharing.

Nor do they have trouble with the horses whispering secrets

To each other

Everyone content

Living here off the land.

A Little Madness is Delightful—-Monday, November 18, 2019

After a predictably BORING morning,

There is nothing better than to shatter the calm

With a little bit of WILD horseplay!

A Genuine and Extravagant Experience—-Wednesday, February 27, 2019

Terry, Boomer and I had walked up to the cross-over pipe looking at the spring projects we wanted to complete, walking ever so carefully in the ‘dry’ parts of the farm road.

We talked about moving this and that, of cleaning the ditch and removing the caps on the pipes when over-head

A low-flying airplane buzzed us…dipping the wings left then right!  It was a wee bit of unusual fun on a very ordinary day.

Our daughter sent us a photo of T’Ata the proud bearer of a wonderous coat


I do believe we need to dry out…rolling around in the dirt (mud) is NOT good for a lady’s coat!

What a mess! 🙂

Through a Day of Wintery Mix —- Thursday, February 14, VALENTINE’S DAY, 2019

First thing early Terry got out the tractor and blade and headed out to smooth up the lane and the farm roads.

The cows had made lots of nice little holes in the mud making going down the farm roads a little on the hard side.

And the long lane to highway had holes worn in it from the tires.

Then in the afternoon, the grey tumultuous clouds came rushing in, covering the Adobe Hills at the base of Grand Mesa

There is a beauty in the snow/rain/mix of those clouds only a photographic vision can express.

The girls had to come over to see what Terry was doing

So I took out treats to these bright rays of horse sunshine.

Glory B (her papers say her name is Blaze of Glory) and T’Ata two of the sweetest, fun to be around furry equines anyone could ask for.

You folks have a great day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
