A Day in Video and Pictures

We had another lovely day here today, it was sunny and about 80 degrees. I am watching the grass greening up and growing before my eyes. The pear trees have bloomed as well. Unfortunately I keep forgetting to take a picture of them.

The horses, donkey, goats, dogs, cats, chickens and all of the various assorted residents here have been thoroughly enjoying the lovely weather. I have been grouchy this evening as there is a front with rain coming through that will drop us back down into the 50's for the next several days before we warm up again. However today was gorgeous and everyone was enjoying the weather. I enjoyed all of the sights that ranged from peaceful grazing to joyous galloping and lazy dogs enjoying the sunshine. I managed to capture some of the sights in pictures and video and I hope you enoy them as much as I did.

Bush enjoyed a nice nap in the sunshine

Then he had a nice roll in the grass upon waking. Not a bad way to spend the day!

Trooper the three-legged wonder was out cold, sleeping hard. I walked all around him taking his picture and he never even opened his eyes.

Coming for breakfast. Things started quietly enough but then came the full gallop. I don't know if I am just stupid or what since I stood there videoing them as they stampeded right at me!

Missy, Harmony, Buffy and Teddy grazed quietly. Apollo is rolling on the other side of the fence.

Liked your galloping horses video - those old guys can still move when they want to!

Kate none of those guys are very old! I think the oldest one is 19 and are all retired due to various injuries. They are my rowdy boys and I love to watch them when they are fired up!

The horses are so beautiful! Sleepy dogs make me tired.

Bush is adorable! Love his video. I can share your pain about the cold front and rainy weather coming through for the next week! I am so dreading it. Can't spring just come and stay already!?

I had another great ride on Hoffy yesterday. I don't think Ive ever had a bad one on him yet! I am really enjoying him...funny to think I originally got him for my husband huh?:)

Those fainting goats are so cute! Glad about the nice weather. I saw my boy hauling ass down that hill! He'll do anything for food!

Melissa-ParadigmFarms said...

Oh my gosh Vivian your comment made me laugh out loud! You are very right in that A) your boy was hauling ass down that hill and B) he will do anything for food!!

Sully said...

Yep, Haulin' ass they were!! That is how I am when someone says they want to go out to eat Mexican food

Sully you need to get a video of that so I can post it on my blog! I haul ass in response to anyone offering me dessert, specifically cake.

Those crazy boys. They know when the good stuff's going to happen.

Bush must be taking lessons from the horses about rolling :) So cute.
