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!
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!
Julius has been losing weight so we had a vet visit. His vet said because he is 30 years old he’s just old and the good news he is still healthy. To put a little weight on him I am feeding him alfalfa twice a day with his grain and hay.
So every week we are getting a weight on him. He’s 1035 lbs and in two weeks we should see a big change!!
It’s been a crazy here lately with a lot of things going on. My partners brother died of covid. He was a good man. I found out that I have a severe allergy to something. Only God knows but I was in the hospital. That’s kindof scary living on the farm and not knowing what started the allergy attack. They won’t do a panel test because they said I don’t normally have allergies. That doesn’t even make sense to me so once I’m off the prednisone I will reevaluate that and ask for a panel test again.
That’s enough personal stuff even for me!! I hope your all well and if you have any ideas how you stress less, please let me know!!
