Nap Time

Imagine my surprise when I looked out my window and saw these two….

Iris and Dugur dog...

Yep, the dog and the horse taking a bit of a snooze in the afternoon sun!

It’s kind of funny how these two will pal around all day.

Iris will follow Dugur around and nuzzle him.

Iris, taking a break!

It is the first time I have seen Iris laying on the ground since we’ve had her.  I was a bit concerned thinking that she might be injured, but she was just fine and enjoying a the feel of the afternoon sun on her back.

Dugur, snoozing.

Crazy critters!

Soaking up the sun. 🙂

It was about a year ago that Dugur took a nap with the geese.  You can read about it here.  It is rather cute, how the geese just thought he was a wonderful spot to rest.

Wordless Wednesday

Puppy play~

It has been a very fun week getting to know these little puppies.  I was a little nervous about having two puppies at the same time but they seem to keep each other  (all of us, really) entertained.

Gunnar and Kletta

Raphael has been re-named Gunnar.  The little kids would call him Ralphy instead of  Raphi , which I’m not too sure I care much for.  So they decided to call him Gunnar (which everyone can pronounce!)  😉

Gunnar looking in the pasture.

Kletta sitting up big.

They are too cute, wrestling around, chewing on each other, zipping here and there!

A little playing around...

Rough housing!

Crazy dogs!

Kletta grinning!

Sun Day!

Every once in a while the sun will show it’s face here in Flathead.  It seems during the winter months it is a real rarity but when it finally  peaks out,  it’s fabulous!

Loving the sun and snow!

Ewes soaking it up...


It makes going out into the snow and cold so much more bearable!


Brrr...but more enjoyable!



Sheep against the mountains with a clear sky.

Looks like today is another such day, hope you’re able to enjoy it!


We spotted this guy while trying to put a halter on Sawyer’s fair calf, he sat and shifted on the tree top for several minutes…












If anyone has any idea what he is chime in.  Our bird book is in Mark’s pick-up and when he is home I always forget to look at it.
