We haven't really been in any ACTUAL mischief this week, but so much potential! With all of the animals on the farm, wanted and unwanted, things can get interesting sometimes.
We see the horses a couple of times a day. They have things like water tanks, which can be great fun or provide a cool drink away from the house.
They also get grain every day. Sometimes they are messy and we get to clean up!
Then there are the cats, or as we prefer to consider them, the catdogs. They act alot like us sometimes. Maybe they think they are dogs? They go hunting for the critters and sometimes we like to get the leftovers until Mom says "gross" or "stop it"!
Then there are the chickens. They are such weird creatures! They do keep the bugs down and their grain is kind of tasty too!
This rooster is Jessie's nemesis! He likes to puff up at her and she steers clear.
We see the cows a couple times a day also. Jessie is wondering "Where do you want them?" We like to roll in the stuff they drop sometimes. But it usually gets us a bath, so have to plan accordingly.
Then we have the uninvited, UNWELCOME, guest. It has been a hot, dry summer, so rattlesnakes have definitely been out. Don't worry. This photo was on ZOOM and cropped. Mom was way back out of striking distance. She always watches for them because they could be dangerous. Just part of living in the country in our neck of the woods.
Other guests have included deer, birds, bunnies, voles, prairie dogs, a badger or two, hawks, coyotes and the occasional eagle. Mom even saw 3 BALD EAGLES one morning. No camera handy, but she says it was really cool!
So many ways to get into mischief here!
