Pictures from Yesterday

No theme, just some pictures that I took out of my window yesterday afternoon. 

This mourning dove is all fluffed up against the cold and snow.


Who can resist these faces?

It looks so cold there, Louise! The deer are so sweet, I don't know anyone could shoot them! I can't believe Winter just won't let go, it's time for Spring and green..........

Have a good day!

oh my gosh what pretty expressive eyes...the deer are thanking you for feeding them. We heard your area got more snow yesterday and we hope it is your last for the winter.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Gorgeous faces!!! What an amazing place you live!

Oh... I am so sorry that Hennessy has been gone these 15 years... What a beautiful lady... I have had big dogs (amazing dogs!) but can only imagine how having a horse who recognizes your face and response to you with such devotion and love can feel like. They are such magnificent creature...and so giving. I would have a very hard time with not being able to bring them into my house to live with me!

Blessings for a very nice day!

Hey Louise...I hope you are enjoying the same brilliant sunshine and blue skies we are experiencing at Skoog Farm! Could those deer be more beautiful?

Hi, Louise. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the comment about my dad and his medications. I appreciate it. He has just changed doctors. I need to visit with the new doctor to get her take on things. The previous Dr. is a specialist in Geriatric medicine and specializes in Alzheimer's and age-related dementia. I think a lot of her diagnosis was a result of comments made by my step mom - who has a tendency to dwell on situations to make her point. My dad has actually done quite well and held his own on the mini-mental exam - his score does not place him in the 'dementia' realm, so I was never quite sure whey the initial Dr. hung that label on him.

Those are "doe eyes" for real! I can't resist those faces!

You asked about the ranch - it's my neighbor's property, and they raise calves every year. They're super conscientious about preserving the land, not over-grazing it etc. Their calves are purely grass-fed. We buy an entire beef from them every year and it feeds our dogs for a year!

It is a different world out here! I'm from the east coast and it's taken a while for me to feel fully part of the culture but it's home now.

Wonderful deer pictures. It's snowing here too.

The dove is a beautiful shade and the deer...just love it!

Hi Louise. You can spread the birdseed on the ground and attract them where you want them. I've had up to about 150 at my own feeders and have hoaries as well as commons. Boom & Gary.
