You might find a few small patches of snow around here (it did snow on Friday for a while), but spring is really in full swing now. There are signs of it everywhere.
For example, crocuses have bravely pushed through to find the light of day.
Cow moms are out with their calves.
Turkeys are putting on all kinds of spectacular shows.
And all the horses ar Bear River Horse Farm are kicking up their heels! Watch this video for the evidence:
On Sunday, I was back at Bill's to take advantage of the decent weather.
Bill was busy reorganizing his end-o-the-year woodpile. But Christine came over to join me and Lilly with QTee.
For example, although you can't tell from the photo, we are actually going up a short, steep hill here. QTee wanted to run up that hill so bad. It's the first time we've been out on the trail in a long time and getting QTee back into shape cannot be rushed. Christine wanted her to walk. QTee had other ideas. All I saw was QTee hopping up the hill in front of me like a little jackrabbit. I can just imagine QTee thinking to herself: A quaterhorse has gotta do what a quarterhorse must do!
Back at home, I found these little "bird's nests" while cleaning out the garden:
I wonder how many of these little birds nests have been squashed by my brumby's hooves. I hope not too many.
Before I sign off, I'd like to share another one of Bill's videos! This is another one he has made of Sophie, the little pony up the road he is helping to socialize.I find her to be very dear. And like all of Bill's videos, this one is very entertaining to the horse lover. Here is the link:
Good night, friends.
