Swan update!

Hello friends! Several weeks ago I posted about the swans, how the Mom swan never left her nest. A few weeks went by and the swans were gone. I honestly thought they had no babies and they left the river that they lived in. Then another few weeks went by and the next thing I saw was the swan family! This was the only time that I saw them. They are usually way down the river and they look like little specs. I think they feel safer down at the end of the river.

Super cute and to say the least I was very happy for them!

I am still trying to put weight on Julius. He has only gained 2 lbs this month. I am feeding him a weight supplement and alfalfa along with hay and his grain twice a day. I did let the vet know so we will see what’s next.

Julius enjoys getting sprayed by the water hose!

Dinner time

I had just finished giving Julius his alfalfa when one of the boarders were bringing in her horses for there dinner.
Little Chloe is so cute with her mane flying everywhere! These two are inseparable.

Buttercup isn’t as excited to go in and eat. They bring there horses in to eat which is probably a good idea so you can control how much they get. They then stay out for the night in the warmer weather. We feed our horses before they go out for the day and when we bring them in for the night.

The patriotic poodle

Hey there friends, in celebration of the long holiday weekend my Mom did nothing exciting. Which in her mind is sometimes nice! A nice quiet weekend at home.

After a visit to the vet and finding out Casey has Lyme disease again, he’s on a diet. He has gained 20 pounds over the last two years. So instead of dog bones he now gets carrots! I’m sure Mr Roosevelt would have a fit if he knew Casey is eating his supply of carrots! He seems to love them where I do not, poodles should be getting steak bones, not that awful tasting orange stick.

Way overgrown but still pretty! My thoughts and prayers are going out to the people who were at the parade in Highland Park trying to enjoy there day. This is not the America I know and love.

Dinner guests

Lately, every evening I see a guest around 5PM in the horse field. Last night we had a heron and a possum that Casey chased into the water. I’m a little surprised that he didn’t jump in for it but I was very glad he didn’t.

The night before I saw a coyote, although I did not get a photo because I was in too much of a rush to get the dogs and myself up to the house but he was right at the water trough and when he saw me he did take off to the pond then I saw him walk into the woods from there. The coyote was the size of Pepper the standard poodle. He looked very well fed and I didn’t want his next meal to be one of my dogs. I grabbed this picture off the internet so you know what I’m talking about!

I don’t think he would have posed for me like this!

We are having warm weather finally and it’s so nice to be outside without rain gear or a jacket-Summer is my second favorite season and I would have to think if you ask any of my family members they would say Fall is my favorite and they would be correct. Why? I love everything about Fall, the crisp air and colors. Not that I’m rushing the seasons but I always think ahead! Enjoy the warm days!

Arlo

What are you doing? He looks so evil when he’s such a sweet kitty-

He was attacking my sons foot and wouldn’t let go. Sometimes he gets a little over excited. He’s still a kitten and he plays way to rough!

I can only imagine that Lunar is telling Arlo to learn his manners!
