Dirty and Dusty



Just a quick post to join Verde Farm on Farm Friend Friday and Farm Girl Friday.  I thought I would share these  pics as Blue decided to roll and show off while I had the camera several days ago.  Look at his mane flying all over the place.  I cannot believe the warm weather disappeared so quickly and tiny spits of snow blew across the farm this afternoon.  

My boy Blue was relaxed that evening, enjoying the evening's sun bath with Jessie close at hand never looking the least bit interested and eating her grass like it was going to disappear!  Oh Spring, please come soon and bring your warm weather so that sun baths and dirt baths can be had once again!

Farm Girl said...

Lovely picture and what a lovely horse. I had a paint who was my soul growing up and my sister had a pinto. I will always have weakness for those kind of horses. Lovely picture. I could almost hear the sound they make when they shake the dirt off.

Hi there! You paid us a visit over at Prairie Farmstead, so I wanted to come visit your farm. I am so glad I did! What a lovely blog you have ~ and your fur babies are just gorgeous!

You are right...I think we are a lot alike. Not only with the animals, but, I also lost my father in 2008. I had just started our blog a couple months prior to his passing.

I am anxious to return, as I am so very interested in listening to your father's story! I am fascinated with the ol' pioneer history.

Thank you so much for visiting us, and as I poke around here, I look forward to getting to know you better.

Blessings to you and yours!

Oh Dirt! The Dirt! I know that tale. The winter coats are finally almost all shed out here and the grass is really getting tall. Your weather looks splendid too. Enjoy! :)
