My big little girl, mother of Magic and Arrow, before her mane detangling and her fly wiping and her brushing. She is a puppy!
Charme after her mane has been unsnarled, combed, and separated one more time. She seems to get the strangest knots and also items in her mane.
The white dove showed again today. Far away from the house, in the pasture. It let me get quite close before it flew. I think it is an escaped pet, my hubby, forever the Emergency Manager, says it is bird flu...gotta love him, he keeps the county safe.
Seymour has taken every step with me this morning. I heard him chasing a rabbit, he does so with a high-pitched yelp and a persistence that amazes me. He is the armadillo eliminator and does occasionally catch a rabbit but does not touch the chickens or the cats.
The cash crop is looking good. The grass is green for August, Thank God for that. Normally we are dry and hot. The weather has been very pleasant and the rains have come when we needed them.
Maggie Mae, who speaks five languages and is honored by in home residency, was also with me all the way. This is my husband's dog and she is smarter than me, probably I would get kicked from the house before her!
Collateral, our young bull whose father was year before last Grand Champion Gelbvieh, is shaping up quite nicely and he has proven he is fertile. He produces small calves that grow quickly.
Here is some proof of Collateral's fertility. I like this breed of cattle, large boned, good milk producers, calm and lots of marbled meat. I believe they produce better steaks than Black Angus.
Another one of my spoiled babies, Knot seems to be sunning. They trek to the barn each morning to see what treats Marcy has left them, peaches, pears or apples.
It is such an amazing day, why am I not riding these beauties????
