For the Love of Animals

The animals on our farm do more than nuture our bodies.

They at times, also nurture our souls.

Sometimes it's easy to get caught up, especially on the cold rainy days of the Pacific Northwest, in all of the "have-to's". It can bring the joy-meter down when it seems as if the chores will never be done and the animals really aren't all that grateful anyway.

Then there are those moments that take the breath away. Those moments when all is right with the world.

These moments.

A simple seranade... 
Elvis in the morning

A moment of trust,
And a moment of appreciation.

A reminder of life-long friendships...
Feeding time

...and the beginning of new ones.
Angus & Wynken

Then there are those moments that just make you smile and thank God for all of blessings in your life.

No matter how many legs one might have.

Oh my goodness! That is just too funny! I love how those kids hop when they run. And momma just keeps on eating. They sure have grown.

I love all your "babies". They sure do keep us busy. And sometimes I think they just don't care as long as they just get that hay or that grain. But in the long run, they do.

Thanks for sharing all the good photos.
