It was warm and sunny today~a real treat of a day indeed. I was tired of paint and stain fumes and decided i would do something i hadnt done in awhile~go on a tour with camera!!!
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...
This is Mommy. She is my old girl~the 19 year old matriarch. I rescued her almost 10 years ago. She is a most special horse...and yes she is the same color as the other two. I have a bay fetish...its the only fetish i have. I promise.

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!).
The unruly crowd of Labradors... and the sole reasons i go through a vacuum every six months...
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...
We have another Cattle Dog named Rosco but he seems to be hiding from the camera. Smart dog.
We have one more critter on todays tour...there is a cat up a tree somewhere....aahhhh yes!!! There is the little scoundrel!!!! Meet Lewis. He is one of the kittens we rescued from starvation this summer. Now he fancies himself a mountain lion...
Somewhere around is a child critter rolling in the snow. Yep there she is! Tee shirt,snow pants and tennis shoes with no socks. Sigh. I try. I do...and no it doesnt look like she brushed her hair today either...

Nope that aint all of the critters around here. I have to ease you into this...its a little... uh... overwhelming. I know.

The horses are just beautiful, and those chickens....too funny! I'm thinkin I need to make some chickens and roosters now, seeing as how I've been on a farm animal kick...lol
Thanks for giving us the tour!

oh, I love your pics, and your animals and their very happy faces! Oh, Riley is a living doll, socks or no socks, hair blowin in the wind, who cares, she's sweet and beautiful on the outside, and extra sweet and beautiful on the inside, just like her Mama!

I want to come live on your happy farm, and bring my girls w/ me, and I'll find a sheep and a goat along the way to bring as a hostess gift.

Thank you for sharing, I only wish every farm w/ animals could be this much fun, and full of such genuine happiness.
