From the Barnyard

A Silly Selfie Sonnet

January 25, 2015

Ok, so to be sure, this is not a true sonnet, but I liked the way it sounded, and it is my Poem and I shall call it Sonnet…

Have a good laugh! I sure did!


So you take yourself a selfie

To show your mom your hair,

You look back over your shoulder

And you see a silly there!


So you take another selfie

And the silly multiplies,


Till you’re taking silly selfies

Of ALL these goofy guys!


We went to the BLS horse sale this last weekend and had a seriously fun time! Look at this little treasure we picked up! The girls named her Honey and we can’t wait to start playing beauty parlor with her.

Fjord mane hearts style

This is our ultimate goal! How fun is this?!! (Click on the picture for original source link.)


Super added bonus - Honey is so gentle and broke to ride! So we got to take her to the arena on Sunday and ride her around! Oh it felt good to be out and going horseback again! This January weather is fabulous!


Addie got to try out her new horse Oh So Beautiful and these two are getting along like old friends! She is feeling Rodeo Bible Camp ready! And good thing too, because I just found out the dates for camp are June 13-16. Click here to see my blog post from last Rodeo Bible Camp. My kids are counting down the days!

Only 140 days to go!

Thank you for stopping by the barnyard for another silly day in my life! I sure appreciate it!

I have one more snow day post I have been waiting to put up, come back soon to see Monster Kitty and our new addition!

Sledding Barnyard Style

January 20, 2016


Like I said last blog, we’ve had some good snow here. And when you have a snow day you better take advantage of it!

Are you girls ready?



How about you Aiden?

“I’m coming!"

She tried riding on the girls’ laps a couple times,

But for the most part she kept up with the sledders pretty well! It was the most exercise she has had… like ever!

“That was fun,” she says, “But next time I want to drive!"

I thought I would try out a gif, see if it plays on my mobile devices.

And here is a YouTube link if you want to see the full video, full sized.

We had a lovely little bit of snow here this weekend. The most we’ve had in a long, long time.

Kelsey in the Snow

January 13, 2016

kelsey 1

I’ve got dog pictures all over my blog! But Kelsey, she is hard to get good photos of!

Kelsey 2

Because she is so joyful, and always running! And when she is not running she is cuddling!

kelsey 4

These are just not ideal conditions for a good photo shoot.

Kelsey 5

But every-once-in-a-while she will slow down from her joyful cruising...

Kelsey 6

And I can get a semi-decent photo of her. It just doesn’t happen very often.


So I thought I would dedicate this blog to photos of our Kelsey!


We love you Kelsey!

You can see additional pictures ofKelsey swimming Down at the Cove by clicking here.

TBT Kelsey

Kesley and Rainy where the first two pups we kept back from our original pair of dogs way back when….

Now she is kind of a matriarch on the ranch!


And look how much her puppy Hank looks and acts like her!

There are a couple pups still available from this last litter. Click here.
