Mr. Bean eats Grain

Our young colt is now 15 days old and growing stronger everyday. He is in a large outdoor paddock giving his legs room to stretch. He gets to talk to the other horses and cows in the stable. When he is not running he is sampling the grain in his own pail. But his mom ends up eating most of it. We are going to upgrade him to a foal feeder to keep his mom out of his chow.

Luna on Patrol

Being a new mom is a lot of work for Luna our mare. She runs along her colt, Mr. Bean, anytime he moves and anywhere he goes. It is one way to get that weight off of her.

Tree Frog

Every evening this tiny green frog stakes out our kitchen window for a meal. He climbs the log exterior of our house to reach this second floor window. That's ambition for an amphibian.
