There's not much going on today, and I'm tied to the house, to the phone and the computer, trying to get some horses matched with new owners. So, I thought you might like to see a couple of new visitors that have shown up at the bird feeder.
This little skunk came around a few nights ago, and has been showing up ever since. I think it must be one of this year's crop. He's a cute little bugger. It's certainly not the big, beautiful, almost all white skunk that has been coming to the feeder for a couple of years. That one always show up when it's too dark to get a picture.
And, the grackles are mobbing, another sign of approaching Fall. They're beautiful birds, but, they sure can clean out the feeding area quickly.
I like this picture of them taking flight when something startled them. It's blurry, but it always amazes me how in sync they are.
From now, until the first part of December, you may notice that my postings become more erratic, and that I'm not commenting on blogs as much. This is the busy season at the track. There are lots of trainers who need to place horses, and not enough homes for all of them. So, I spend a lot of my time hustling.
If any of you want a nice TB, now is the time to consider it. Shipping isn't a problem, and may not be as expensive as you think. Just throwing that out there as a half serious, half joke thing. ;-D John, you're exempt anyways, shipping to Great Britain is definitely out of the range of possibility.
