Yesterday I had the opportunity to look after Becky's animals. Becky is Hubbs' sister..."Dr. Becky" as we call her. She is also our vet and shares the land of our farm. Yesterday Dr. Becky was out of town and needed her animals tended during the day. This gave me the chance to catch a few photos of her horses and dogs. I especially wanted to share with you one of her 3 horses.... Duffy.
He is an old man, now... retired from giving lessons and jumping fences.
Becky tells how, in his prime, he could jump with even the most novice of riders
on his back and not lose his rider.
He would adjust his body beneath his rider to
keep them in their saddle.
His only job these days is that of companionship for her other horses,
His temples are grey,
his athletic stature is long gone.
But he is full of love and kindness.... and still rules the barnyard.
Here are Dr. Becky's canine pals...
(from left to right...Monty...ignoring, Rosie...smiling, and Indy...staring)
Ahh, so much cooler for warmer weather!
Look how much smaller she looks without her hair.
Here are my two fearless barn kitty boys, along with me to feed the
Dwarf Nigerian Goats.
Bobby, the fearless, was not at all afraid of the goats...
not even after he was butted by Star (he got just a little too close to her food.)
Personally, I'd be a little intimidated by all those horns!
That's Bobby the Fearless....afraid of nothing and no one!
