Today's walk and other pictures

Photobucket

It's been cold and rainy the past three days, so today was a bit of a relief even though it was cold. The animals had a much nicer time outside today than they did yesterday.

Bucket's other doeling who I couldn't get far enough away from to get a good picture!

Butternut's cute little guy! I think this is the first picture of him on the blog. He's as big as Bo and he's over a week younger!

Photobucket
Bean wants you to see how cute her little guy is, he is also Bo's best buddy in the barn to play with

He's got such a cute face.

This is what it looked like yesterday outside:
It rained. It hailed. It snowed. It rained. It hailed. And so on.

Later this afternoon some blue sky peaked out and the wind was down. I took it as good reason to go for a walk with some of the boys. So Bo came down from the barn with me to the house to get Norman and Douglas for a walk. Bo has been to the house several times since his move to the barn. He walks right up the steps, comes inside and it's like he never left.

Here I come!

Photobucket 
 The dogs were excited to see him and no one would stand still!

Photobucket 
Off we go!
Photobucket 
Bo really enjoying the leaf he just ate!

Looking for another good one.

 This ones not bad either....
Photobucket

Douglas looking like a French bulldog with his ears up

Douglas wonders why Bo is eating leaves, they don't taste very good!

I learned something today. Douglas is half squirrel. He was digging in the ground and I wondered what for... acorns apparently! He dug up four. And they were not lying on the ground, they were buried!

Doug with his treasure
Photobucket 
Doug trying to EAT his treasure with me yelling "drop it!" which he did. He knows that command very well since he's like a toddler and likes to put things in his mouth
Photobucket 
Where to next?
Photobucket 
Playing with leaves, I love this picture
Photobucket 
Seeing if I have any milk for him maybe...
Photobucket 
Norman checking to see if Bo got a cookie and he didn't...
Photobucket 
Doug was trying to pull this "stick" out of the ground! 
Photobucket 
He couldn't manage it so I got him a better one
Photobucket 
He loves his sticks
Photobucket 
What? what is it?
Photobucket 
hmmm should I go in there?
Photobucket 
Nope!
Photobucket 
I think I once had a nice swim here...  a little cold today
Photobucket 
I think they were looking at their reflections...
Photobucket 
enough of that!
Photobucket 
Heading home
Photobucket 
Brief stop for a quick dog fight (a play one of course)
Photobucket 
This chipmunk came out to see what all the fuss was about

 After the dogs came inside for their supper, Bo and I headed back up to the barn....

Before I wander off to find out what to make for dinner, and to have a drink on the porch with the dogs since the sun has come out for a few moments, here are some pictures of a hike Kevin and I took a few days ago, before the snowy rainy weather.

 We actually found flowers! The first wild ones that have shown up in the forest.

Photobucket
And I found several new spots full of Strawberry plants. I'll have to watch this place like a hawk this summer for berries. I have several "hot spots" to keep an eye on. Of course everyone else in the forest will be keeping an eye on the same spots! But maybe I'll get a little bit.

Photobucket

Chunks of Quartz...we have lots of it here, and Mica. We even have holes where the old people were mining for it at one time.

Photobucket

This guy was trying to hide from me...

Photobucket

and while I was taking pictures, I looked higher up in the tree and saw there was another one there!

Photobucket

There were little fishes down at the dam...

Photobucket
Here is what Kevin's poor road looks like thanks to the beaver, and the fact the tractor was gone for a few days this week getting some welding done...
Photobucket

Last but not least, we had a strange visitor to our pond at the house the other day. He's never been here before and I'm not sure who he is.


Off to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine (although the wind is freezing) in my coat and hat with the dogs for a few minutes. Gotta take what you can get right now!

Please visit our friends at the Homestead Barnhop today!
