Fall is here

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Boy, did the weather change fast. No more hot weather. emoticon
Made it real nice for Huck, who loves to run around like crazy when we play ball.




My friend's roses




We went to the ranch. 62 degrees, and still somewhat windy, but not too cool.
Just a nice day. We let Rio and Scarlet out in the pasture.




Rio is a sweet boy. He is enjoying the attention we have been giving him. He has a cute smile!




Llamas. They have been real curious about my camera, and one of them has bonded with the Lamb real well. She wouldn't let me take a pic of it lol.






I spotted a baby Lizard at the ranch. I don't know how it got past Sarge and Alice since they are always on Lizard patrol.


Sarge


We left the ranch. Alice was looking out the window, as usual.


We got to the end of the dirt road, turned the corner, and there was a female Quail sitting on a fence. What a sweet face.





On the road, near by, was a Brewers Blackbird.


In fact, there were several birds in the road. We have never seen them in the road like this. Maybe a lot of bugs were on the ground.



Further down the road we saw the Kestrel again, in the same area.


In the same area is my favorite barn. Not sure if the Ravens will show up in here, but they are sitting near the barn on the right.


Have a good Wed!

    Beautiful photos!
    We've had an amazing variety of birds at our feeder lately. Bill was feeding them black stripped sunflower seeds and suet. But our local bear was by 2 nights ago and our feeder is destroyed. We'll wait a couple of days and put it back up again. The birds are looking for their food! Have a great week! emoticon Renee

    emoticon We found out the Alpaca farm nearby lets you come in to mingle with their herd of 83. They give birth in December and you can watch. We are going to go see it soon. Take photos for a blog. Also they have a gift shop where you can buy products made from their fur. They are so cute! Like the llamas!

    Love the Kestrel! He's such a petite and pretty bird of prey! Hard to believe, in a way!

    That llama has quite an underbite! emoticon

    I'm not surprised that Sarge and Alice like lizards, because my little rat terrier is fascinated with toads! Last week, he saw one when I took him out for a potty break before bed. He gently pawed it until it flipped over (4 or 5 times), observed it, sniffed it, turned it back over with one pawing (gently again, the toad was fine), and eventually was willing to come along back into the house. He was very intent on that toad until he was satisfied.

    Until we had this dog, I hadn't realized how much dogs are interested in other creatures. Another time, he dropped his Frisbee, forgetting all about playing, when a butterfly flittered by. He forgot all about our game until the butterfly was gone.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Of course, being a rat terrier, rabbits really get him going! emoticon

    It's so pretty where you live.
