The kids came in, nothing short of refreshed and rejuvenated, after completing their farm chores in the nippy freshness of the morn.
Feeding some spoiled and beloved bunnies...
Feeding chickens.. (the guinea keets clean up the spillage after Johnny extracts some grain from the large bin to soak in five gallon pails).
Johnny has been insisting we get out the winter garb soon... after that it will be the shovels and sleds, shortly followed by, "when are we going to get our Christmas tree??"
(Can you tell I know this boy's seasonal anticipations quite well?)
A cow waits for Michael to deliver his morning minerals...
Some fuzzy horses and mules. We're glad to have a recent sale of one of our mares, as well as securing a new and more comfortable home for our blind mare, before the harshness of winter sets in!
The only boy in the pasture... can you believe he's almost three already? Seems like he was just born!
Despite the innocent looking face, this mule is terribly evil!! The other night when we were out riding, she suddenly came tearing up the trail behind us and spooked all of our horses. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but we're growing more than sick of her fence jumping antics!
The tomatoes and peppers have all been killed off by the frosts outside, but thankfully, those lucky enough to be sown inside the greenhouse are still quite fresh and unharmed by the heavy frosts (despite not even having a heat source in there yet!).
While most of the leaves have settled down onto their respective places on the ground, there are still a few patches of lingering color, which continue to delight our eyes on our daily walks!
Signing off now with some of the boys photography fun..
Michael's Nothern Lights (weren't uploaded when I made the last post).
Stunning... enough to draw the whole family out into the yard in short sleeves and socks!

I'm fighting the urge to pull out the winter garb too. But with all the snow I've been seeing on the net and t.v. I guess I should get prepared. Love the Northern lights, reminds me of when we lived in Alaska.ReplyDelete
