Introducing Snickers, our new grand dog.  Beau, her half brother, was the sleeping puppy posted a few days ago.

But the face is red.

Talk to the Animals

Talk to the Animals

Farmhands regularly talked to their animals as they trained and cared for them.


Ain’t Misbehavin

Ain't Misbehavin 1

This playful little guy continually scampered up a tall stump then leaped off kicking into the air frequently dispersing others from his area.

Wonderful Baby

Wonderful Baby

We were told that this yearling is considered a baby until he’s three.  He took a shine to Lois.


Something In The Way He Moves

These huge Clydesdales perform with amazing alacrity and grace.

 


It’s Alright Mama

It's Alright Mama

We missed the shot.  As Big Ben was getting prepared to pull his cart, this mother cat scrambled out behind him carrying a kitten by the nape of its neck.  She seemed concerned about having her kittens share quarters with the Clydesdales.


Maybe I’m Amazed

Maybe I'm Amazed

. . . at the size of a Clydesdale’s hooves.

Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue

Don't Make My Brown Eyes Blue

 

We were on our way out the door when Suzi said . . .

I’ll be fine when you’re gone

I’ll just cry all night long, say it isn’t true

And don’t it make my brown eyes blue

 


Release Me

Release Me

 

Our grand dog Suzi feigns interest in son Ted on our deck;  actually, she really wants to chase the rabbit sitting beyond in our back yard.

On Thanksgiving Day we count our blessings.  The turkey . . . not so much.

Driving east into the sun following the Wisconsin River, the early morning sun backlit a cloud of fog hovering over the river beyond the tree line and a horse grazing in front of it along Hwy 60.


Domestic Animals

Harnessed horses worked in teams pulling wagons and powering machines during Pioneer Days just as they did in earlier times.  John was reminded of Prince, his favorite horse on his aunt and uncles’ farm.


Downward

The Como Conservatory is flanked by the Como Zoo.  We snapped this photo as we looked downward while leaving . . . because we could only get a partial photo of a sleeping male lion for our previous NEW Zoo series.
