New at the Farm, Animal vs. Human, Easy Living

1.Spring time brings with it new babies at the horse farm. Audrey was the first to find this little Hackney filly yesterday morning. Isn't she the cutest thing?!

I love her legs in this photo. She's trying to find steady ground..
The massive barn is almost emptied of hay. At the end of the month, it will be filled back up again. If I wasn't wearing my better clothes I would have been climbing those bales : )
I always know where to find Russel the Peacock. He'll be admiring his reflection in the chrome.
I chased him away. 

2. I enjoy the quiet of the farm. It's inhabited by at least a hundred animals and yet it's so quiet and peaceful. Why can't one hundred children be this quiet? What is it with humans and nervous energy and chatter and noise? The contrast of the farm to the school cafeteria is astonishing to my senses. There's no point of even comparing the scent of hay to that of cafeteria broccoli.
3. I walk to my car at 9:00 pm. and the sky is still pale. The warm air and longer days make life seem a little more carefree.


  1. That baby is so sweet! Such huge eyes.

    Russel is gorgeous and looks as if he knows it. :)

  2. What a precious little baby!
