Jason snuck Riley off shopping on Christmas Eve so i could go and get her and sneak her into the barn. I had it all planned you see....Little did Jason know but i had bought him a new big sliding mitre saw for Christmas. Because i am devious by nature i came up with the idea of a treasure hunt. I wrapped up a small jewelry box and put in under the tree with the first clue...You should have seen the perplexed look on Big Daddys face. He is thinking this is my warped way of getting Riley to the barn. Each clue was hidden in a tiny stocking and goodness i had them running everywhere!
Finally they both ended up in the barn. Riley is standing there looking at the saw and didnt even see that little mini standing right behind the gate two feet away from her! Then the little Chistmas surprise moved and caught her eye. She screamed in delight!!! It was a sweet, sweet, moment...
Here they are together...
What a dynamic duo!!! The excitement wont be ending here...Riley tells me she MUST have a Nigerian Dwarf Goat this Spring. Now how the heck am i gonna pull that one off?????? Anyone ever see an Easter bunny traveling with a goatish sidekick???

All the big cities have their fair share of gang bangers. There are the Crypts, MS 13, the Bloods...well we here on the prairie got "the Birds". They are a tough crowd too...they love to "hang" in my flower beds and scratch graphetti in the dirt. Look at the hooligans~they are real trash talkers too.
Did you know Phyllis Diller was in a gang? Well she is...look...see???Thats the gang leader next to Phyllis...he is an idiot. The dumbest bird i have ever known. Yo. I said it. Whatcha gonna do about it???Okay enough of that gang stuff...its time to move onto to a nicer crowd...
This is my sweet Glory aka Glory Sue, Glory Zoo Loo, and Zoolie. I have raised her. She is a great love of my life and the ultimate PEST! The whole time i was trying to take pictures she was following me and chewing on my coat. I think the chickens put her up to it... Pretty soon another pest arrived on the scene. This is Gracie, my newest addition. Glory is teaching her everything she knows about being pesky. Gracie has the cutest lil nose...she begs me to kiss it all the time...
Is that all the animals you have you wonder...oh no...we are just getting started!Meet Clancy James Tucker. He is a canine hunk and quite possibly the silliest dog i have ever known. I love my Clan Man...the world is his onion (and chew toy!).
This is Shiner...she is an Australian Cattle Dog. Poor thing, she doesnt know a single trick or command. In the summer she will run herself ragged chasing the sprinkler...Shes just too cute...
Nope that aint all of the critters around here. I have to ease you into this...its a little... uh... overwhelming. I know.
