Santa....Please Bring Candycanes!

It seems that there is some sort of internet challenge associated with blog writing
way too often...
and usually it has to do with things way beyond my knowledge or control.
If you read my blog via Facebook, I apologize for it not loading yesterday.
Goodness knows why...it is supposed to happen automatically.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that this situation fixes itself today.

For those of you who weighed in on Annie's breed...
Dr. Becky emailed me and said she got the results back yesterday.
Her comment was "Hahahahahahahahahahahahah!
Oh goodness does that ever whet my appetite!!
We'll know the answer this coming weekend.

We are in the midst of a string of gray winter days...
gray, damp, muddy...that about describes the out of doors right now.
I have finally been tackling Christmas cookie baking.

My trips out to see the animals are always the most important part of my day.
At this time of year, when we are all enjoying varied treats,
it only seems fair that I share some treats with my friends as well.

It doesn't take much to please Ginger and MaryAnn...

I had some peppermint sticks to share with the equines.
I thought I would try taking photos of them while I gave them treats.
I made the mistake of going into the dry-lot with them... which quickly became a mob scene!

Rather than risk my camera being slobbered,
I headed for the safety of the other side of the fence.
Being able to keep the horses and donkeys at arm's length is necessary if I am going to get any photos.
Here's how that went...

A picture is worth a thousand words.
The only word needed for the above photos is "YUMMY!!!"

Not only Yummy but I would call some of them rather funny..made me laugh out loud. No wonder you went to the other side of the fence!

teddy takes her treats just like the pigs, she grabs it and grunts! i never thought of candy canes for horses but it makes sense, they like sugar cubes...same difference! we are about to get cold!

Who knew the horses & donkeys like candy canes. The sugar yes, but the peppermint I'm surprised they like. I thought Ginger & Mary Ann might actually bite your hand off they were so eager to get those carrots in their mouths. Love all the grunts, chomping noises & crunchy goodness being devoured. They sure love those carrots. Everyone deserves a holiday treat. You managed to take some nice photos. I'm not quite sure how you managed to take them one handed while feeding treats.

Your Annie looks a lot like my Diane. Diane's ears are shorter but other than that they look like sisters. I rescued Diane from the pound when I went looking for my missing cat. It's always a bad idea to send me to the pound alone. haha I was told Diane is a mix between Border Collie and Great Pyrenees, but I really don't see that.
