A couple weeks ago Old Man Winter decided to smile on us, and rewarded us with some much
loved needed warmer temperatures and sunny skies. I couldn’t help but take advantage of them, so after chores were done that afternoon I drove down our gravel road a few miles to see what I could see. Admittedly I was on the hunt for some deer, but you know, I didn’t find any. I think I was out too early for them. Had I waited until 4:30 or 5, right as the sun is about to go down, I might have had more success. But that is neither here nor there. What is important is that I got some super cool shots! Cool might even be an understatement- as it has been cold here!
We have a lot of snow- and there’s even more now than when these photos were taken. You’ll see. Ima show you later this week!
Mother Nature and Old Man Winter have conspired to have us fixing lots of fence this spring!
If you look closely you can see two porcupines in this tree. This is where they live most of the time. If I’d have had the time and energy, I’d have hiked the 1/4 mile through 2-3 foot snow drifts to get better photos but I didn’t have the time or the energy!
This tree isn’t on our place- it’s in the creek bottom on the adjacent spread but it’s so cute all by its lonesome in the snow, don’t you think?
This scrubby little bush is on our place and I like it!
And here’s some horses, kickin’ it in the snow. This is some of our 2 and 3 year old fillies with a couple random geldings thrown in for laughs:
Be sure you come back later this week, because I promise something special is coming!
